Best Twitter reactions to Sixers' barrage of moves in NBA free agency

The Philadelphia 76ers jumped out of the gate in NBA free agency with several big moves — and key losses — that will again dramatically reshape the team that steps onto the court in October.

More than any other professional sport, the NBA's free agency period is packed with drama and fairly instant gratification from the moment teams are able to put pen to paper. That provides a favorable environment for sudden reactions and snap judgments, particularly for a team as active as the Sixers were on Sunday night.

Here's a quick roundup of some of the best reactions to the various moves Elton Brand and the Sixers front office made (and didn't make) at the start of free agency.

Tobias Harris signs 5-year, $180 million extension to remain in Philadelphia

Also, Josh Richardson is kind of an Eagles fan.
