The Sixer Sense Podcast returns following the big news that the Utah Jazz gave Paul Reed an offer sheet for 3 years and $23 million. Being that Reed is a restricted free agent, the Sixers can match any offer, however, Danny Ainge put a poison pill in the contract that makes it difficult for the Sixers to re-sign Reed. The offer sheet is guaranteed for one year unless the team Reed plays for in 2023-24 makes the Conference Semifinals. Ainge with a direct shot at the Sixers that landed perfectly.

Lucas Johnson and Jonathan Geib welcome back a familiar voice to the podcast for the second straight week. This time Uriah Young is back and the trio gives out their grades for the Sixers’ free-agent signings thus far. Will Pat Beverly, Mo Bamba, or Montrzel Harrell be able to provide a spark off the bench? The group debates whether the Sixers improved the bench or not after they also had Shake Milton, Jalen McDaniels, and Georges Niang depart for supposed greener pastures.

NBA Summer League continues and Lucas is here to provide the most in-depth analysis on the future prospects on the Sixers roster. All eyes are on Jaden Springer to see if he can take that next step to add depth to the backcourt this upcoming season. Are there any two-way contract players we should keep on our radar?

The podcast ends with a discussion about the winners and losers of NBA free agency so far. Lucas, Jonathan, and Uriah all have different takes for both the winners and losers and each gives compelling arguments in support. Who do you think makes the best case for their take? Give the podcast a listen below!
