Now, the Sixers will bring in a former All-Star big man to replace him.
In order to get a backup to Joel Embiid, the Sixers will bring in 2-time All-Star Andre Drummond on a 1-year deal.
Drummond had a tough time fitting in Los Angeles, but in Philadelphia, he has a chance to fill a nice role behind Embiid off the bench.
Free agent C Andre Drummond has agreed to a one-year deal with the 76ers, source tells ESPN.

This is interesting due to the animosity that Embiid and Drummond have had in the past, but this is a big addition for the Sixers as the big man depth behind both Embiid and Tobias Harris needed to be addressed.
