Now that the Philadelphia 76ers have addressed their backup big man issue with the signing of veteran Montrezl Harrell, now is the time to figure out how he will look out on the floor.

After donning No. 8 while with the Charlotte Hornets and No. 6 while with the Washington Wizards in the 2021-22 season, he is deciding to switch back to the No. 5 uniform as he posted it on his Instagram story. Harrell wore that number while playing for coach Doc Rivers with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Harrell won the 2020 6th Man of the Year award while wearing No. 5 as he averaged 18.6 points and 7.1 rebounds in the 2019-20 season on his way to winning the award.

Harrell averaged 13.1 points and 6.1 rebounds in the 2021-22 season for the Wizards and the Hornets and he will now be looking to bring that production to Philadelphia. The Sixers need somebody to rely on to back up Embiid and he has proven that he can be that guy they can count on.
