5. Willy Hernangomez, C
It can be argued that Willy Hernangomez is one of the best backup centers in the NBA. He’d be a great backup center option for the Philadelphia 76ers moving forward. However, it’s not likely that the Pelicans let him walk unless they invest in restricted free agent Jaxon Hayes.
4. Alec Burks, SG
Former Sixers sixth man Alec Burks played well for the rebuilding Pistons. With Williams bringing a winning culture to Detriot, Burks could be brought back, but the new head coach might want his own veterans. If the 6-foot-6 shooting becomes available, then Philly should consider a reunion.

3. Malik Beasley, SG
Malik Beasley is the NBA definition of a streaky shooter. Beasley is a high-volume 3-point shooter and 6-foot-4 he can be a good spark plug off the bench. However, the Los Angeles Lakers barely played him in the offseason so they might not exercise his option, and if they don’t, then signing him is an option for the 76ers.
2. Kenyon Martin Jr., SF
He might not be on the same level as his father, but Kenyon Martin Jr. is a really good young player and it’s unlikely that the Houston Rockets will let him become a free agent. That being written, he’d probably be too expensive for the Sixers to sign this offseason.
1. Herbert Jones, F
If Herbert Jones were just an average 3-point shooter, he’d be one of the best 3-and-D players in the NBA. Despite the less than, the 6-foot-8 is one of the best young defensive aces in the NBA. There’s no way the Pelicans will let him hit free agency.
There are some interesting players on this list and I hope one or two of them will find their way on the Philadelphia 76ers roster.
