With a few games remaining and the making playoffs a reality for Doug Collins only, focus on free agency has most assuredly been on the mind of everyone involved with the 76ers. The draft lottery is just that this year, a lottery. Free Agency is a much different animal altogether.
Everyone has a varying opinion on what the Sixers will do this offseason. From Andrew Bynum to Al Jefferson to Joel Przybilla, each would have a varying effect on the future of the franchise. Assuming the 76ers decide that tanking isn’t an option in 2013-14, here is what should transpire during free agency.
No trades or stretch clause are factored in, otherwise I’d trade the whole roster for Andre Drummond and Ryan Anderson.
So, next year’s team currently consists of Thad, Jrue, Hawes, J-Rich, ET, Lavoy, Moultrie, and Kwameeeee. Throw in the 76ers projected lottery pick and the team has about $13,000,000 to work with this offseason. The team needs a bit of everything and will take some smart moves to build a playoff team.
After the jump, I present the plan for what I’d do this offseason, if tanking in 2013-14 isn’t an option…
