This might be the last free agent big board of the 2022 offseason. Thus far, I’ve covered rankings for unrestricted, restricted, and player-options free agents. This article will be no different as this one will review potential free agents with team options.
Some of these players could be potential targets of the Philadelphia 76ers if they make it to free agency. I will be giving my input on whether or not their teams will keep them for another season or not.
18. Juwan Morgan, PF
Despite being a member of the Boston Celtics who are currently competing for an NBA title, Juwan Morgan isn’t a rotational player. He played more games in the G-League this season and at the age of 25, the 6-foot-7 power forward doesn’t have very much more time to develop. There’s a good chance the Celtics elect to make him a free agent this summer.
17. Sam Hauser, SF
The 24-year-old undrafted rookie played well for Boston this past season. Sam Hauser was fairly dominant in the G-League and showed real promise as a 3-point shooter with the Celtics. Don’t be surprised if Boston brings him back next season. If the Celtics don’t exercise his option, then he should be on the Philadelphia 76ers’ radar.
16. Luka Garza, C
Luka Garza might have been a dominant college scorer, but the 6-foot-11 big man was still just a second round pick of the Detroit Pistons this past draft. He struggled a bit on both ends as a rookie on the NBA level, but he did dominate in the G-League. With the Pistons still in a rebuild, there’s no harm in bringing back the 23-year-old next season. However, with Kelly Olynyk, Isaiah Stewart, and potentially Marvin Bagley III, playing time will be hard to come by next season.
