The Sixers are too top-heavy to weather even the smallest injury

Article Summary:

While one could look at the loss of Harris and point to that as the biggest reason why the Sixers were unable to outlast Darius Garland and Collin Sexton, it’s actually a symptom of a bigger issue; that despite having reshaped the roster both in free agency and the draft, Daryl Morey’s roster is still incomplete.

Now sure, one could knock Morey for bringing back non-contributors like Terrance Ferguson and Vincent Poirier alongside Danny Green in the Al Horford trade or for his decision to only really add one legitimate contributor in free agency in ex-Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard, but ultimately that isn’t really why the Sixers’ bench is bad. Even if the Sixers were able to land a guard like Alec Burks, Reggie Jackson, or Langston Galloway, that wouldn’t have instantly fixed the team’s issues.

With only two more games left to play before the NBA All-Star break, Morey will surely stand pat with the roster as it’s presently constructed and then get to work on re-work-ing the Sixers roster before the March 25th trade deadline, if not their first game back versus the Chicago Bulls on March 11th.

While landing that superstar player many a fan craves to top-load the Sixers’ roster even further, the team would still be a single injury away from being right back in the same boat they are in right now at full strength and a second injury away from being the Sixers squad that lost to the lowly Cavs in overtime. Don’t feel too bad for Daryl Morey; assuming the Sixers don’t finish out the season on a sour note and it all gets blown up, many of these growing pains will be smoothed out as the roster comes further into focus.
