Thus far I’ve written big boards about players who have team options and player options. Now is the time to create a big board about restricted free agents. This big board will include one Philadelphia 76ers player and several players who could be in the Sixers’ price range if they became free agents.
Remember that restricted free agents can sign an offer sheet with any team but the team they played with last season can match any contract offered to them. This list will also exclude players on two-way contracts so those hoping to see where Mac McClung and Louis King of the Delaware Blue Coats would rank will be disappointed.
23. David Duke Jr., G
For most of last season, David Duke Jr. was on a two-way deal for the Brooklyn Nets but it was converted to a regular contract before the playoffs. The 6-foot-5 guard is good defensively, but his biggest flaw is his lack of an outside shot. With that in mind, he’s probably not a good fit for the Sixers.
22. Dylan Widler, SF
Dylan Windler was selected as a 3-point shooting wing out of Belmont but has failed to become that for the Cleveland Cavaliers. The 6-foot-6 wing could still turn it around as a shooter, but it doesn’t appear that Cleveland will be the place that will happen.
21. Omer Yurtseven, C
After having a solid rookie year, Omer Yurtseven didn’t get nearly as much playing time with the Miami Heat last season. However, that doesn’t mean that the 7-footer’s future with Miami is in doubt. He could return to them on a minimum deal.
