It’s been over three months since the Philadelphia 76ers made a big move, swapping Al Horford and a pick for Danny Green. It’s a wise move with an unfortunate consequence: 76ers bench units almost universally get killed.
Possible trade targets
- Low-end – Eric Gordon: Most teams would balk at the two guaranteed seasons and roughly $38 million left on Gordon’s contract, but Daryl Morey is the executive that signed him to that contract, and with Philly capped out moving forward regardless, the downside for the 76ers is somewhat minimal.
Possible buyout targets
- Guard – JJ Redick: Brooklyn would be the favorite if Redick eventually gets a buyout, but the two years he spent with Philadelphia should give the 76ers a puncher’s chance.
