As Phoenix celebrates the Suns’ eventual trip to the Finals where they’ll face either the Milwaukee Bucks or the Atlanta Hawks, Philadelphia 76ers fans are showing some love to some of their former players and coaches who’re with the Suns.
Which Former Sixers are Headed to the Finals?
Dario Saric, one of the key members of the Sixers’ infamous process, will reach the NBA Finals before stars such as Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.
After getting selected 12th overall by the Orlando Magic and traded to the Sixers on the same night, many speculated that Saric would never come to the United States to play with the struggling Sixers despite the Croatian forward giving the team his word. As a key member of Phoenix’s rotation, Saric will officially become the first key member of the process to land in the NBA Finals – and he isn’t the only former Sixer to get there. During the 2018-2019 season, Williams worked under former Sixers head coach Brett Brown.
