3 floor-spacing bigs to pursue in free agency: Bobby Portis
Option number two is Bobby Portis. Portis is a veteran, a champion, an enforcer, and a utility three-point shooting big man. Portis is a free agent that would make sense for the Sixers on the court in shooting as well as what he brings physically. On top of the floor-spacing big man role, it would be a blessing to have a hard-working, hustle-type player on the Sixers.
The former Chicago Bull is a 38.3 percent three-point shooter and a 75.2 percent free-throw shooter. So you know the shooting is a legitimate weapon. Portis was an essential rotation player in the Milwaukee Bucks 2020-21 championship run. In the NBA Finals against the Phoenix Suns, Bobby Portis came up clutch as he shot a blistering 43.8 percent from three-point land.
The 6-foot 10-inch forward is used to playing next to a generational international MVP caliber player as he played with Giannis Antetokounmpo. In this scenario, Portis would obviously share some time with Joel Embiid. The fit would be thought to be seamless due to the flexibility, versatility, and skill level of Embiid. The simple guarantee that Portis will be a professional and play is a great service to the Sixers’ chances.
