Nikola Vucevic

It’s hard to remember, because Nikola Vucevic has been a staple on the Magic for so long, but he did play with the Philadelphia 76ers during his rookie year. He averaged 5.5 points and 4.8 rebounds with the Sixers. He was included in three team trade that landed the 76ers Andrew Bynum, who never played for the franchise.

Since coming to Orlando, Vucevic has become one of the more versatile offensive big men in the NBA. He finally made his first All-Star game and lead the Magic to a playoff berth. He should still be a force on the offensive end this year as he’s about to turn 29-years-old

Dario Saric

Along with Covington, Saric was the other main piece of the trade that allowed Philly to get Bulter. Saric averaged 13.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists while on the Sixers. Saric was a good player, but with the talents of Embiid and Ben Simmons already on the team, it limited how much he could do or grow as a player.

Saric was mostly a reserve for the T-Wolves last season. He was traded to the Phoenix Suns this past offseason. With the Suns he should be able to start at power forward and could be a nice role player for the duo of Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton.
