2023-24 Season Overview:

Joel Embiid prior to his injury was having arguably the best season in a decade and would have been the unanimous MVP. He’s this generation’s Shaq, as he simply can no longer be stopped and defensively is a superstar too. Tyrese Maxey taking the step from talented combo guard to All-Star point guard was huge for Philadelphia, and Tobias Harris, Buddy Hield and Kelly Oubre performed very well too. Missing Embiid for so long gave the 76ers a very tough playoff road, where they could not beat the Knicks.

Offseason Goals

Philadelphia’s first move will be re-signing All-Star point guard Maxey to a max contract, which he has earned. Maxey continues to grow as a talent and is a perfect star to pair with Joel Embiid.

With so many free agents, little cash and with a need to win, the 76ers have little choice but to keep their major secondary talents – Hield, Oubre and Melton. However, they cannot afford to keep Tobias Harris, who will receive a huge contract, probably from the Pistons. Philadelphia has no chance but to build the roster with players already there, trades, late draft picks and bargain purchasing.

The 76ers will have a huge hole at the four, but there’s really not much they can work with. Adding a sneakily solid free agent – perhaps Dario Saric? – would make a lot of sense. They also need to hit on their 2024 NBA draft pick with someone who fits, fixes a need and is available around pick No. 15. Devin Carter, the offensively gifted sixth man, could fit them.

Philadelphia wants Paul George, but the club would likely need to make sign and trade for him, and the only trade that makes sense is tp sign and trade to the Clippers Kelly Oubre Jr. and Buddy Hield, along with several first-round choics for the All-Star. who would then probably sign a three- or four-season max deal with the 76ers.
