Thus far this offseason, I’ve written big boards for both unrestricted and restricted free agents that might be targets of the Philadelphia 76ers. Now it’s time to look at a different type of free agent big board. Well to be more specific potential free agents with player options in their contract.

When evaluating these free agents, I will also be including whether or not I believe these players will exercise their player options. With that being written, let’s begin.

19. Svi Mykhailiuk, G/F

This isn’t the first time I’ve written about Svi Mykhailiuk as a potential free agent. The 6-foot-7 wing was drafted as a sharpshooter but wasn’t that for the Toronto Raptors this past season. It would be wise for the 24-year-old to opt into his contract because he might not get another one in the NBA.

Must Read. Brown Jr.’s development is important to the Sixers this offseason. light

18. Thanasis Antetokounmpo, F

Despite being the older brother of Giannis Antetokounmpo, Thanasis Antetokounmpo doesn’t have the skillset of his All-Star’s little brother. At 6-foot-6, he’s essentially a power forward and a negative on offense. However, it seems as long as his brother stars for the team, the 29-year-old will have a spot there regardless if he opts in or out.

17. Trey Burke, PG

I’m a personal fan of Trey Burke and I wished that former Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown used him more when he was in Philly. However, the 6-foot spark plug appears to have found a home as the Dallas Mavericks’ third-string point guard. It’s unclear if he would have a demand in the free-agent market so it would be best for the 29-year-old to opt into his contract.

16. Tony Bradley, C

Tony Bradley is also another former Sixers player I have an affinity for. The 6-foot-10 big man played well as a primary backup for the Chicago Bulls this season. It’s very possible that the 24-year-old center could find a deal worth more than $2 million next season elsewhere. He could very well opt-out of his contract for a big payday.
