In order to succeed in today’s NBA, a team needs to be able to have the necessary shooting and floor spacing to be able to get to work on the offensive end. The Bucks were the best team in the East in the 2019-20 season, but Philadelphia did not get past the Boston Celtics in Round 1 due to a lack of shooting. “
The team had success offensively in the past with shooting around Embiid and Simmons.
Having shooters around those two is very important for their success and that is what a guy like Curry, as an example, can bring to the table over a guy like Richardson.
