The 76ers still have a strong top three without James Harden. Joel Embiid is the reigning MVP, Maxey scored 20 points per game last season as a 22-year-old, and Tobias Harris can do a ton of the floor. Philadelphia could look to add another strong role player instead of a star in hopes of staying in contention.

Bogdanovic is no stranger to trade rumors and figures to be a sought-after commodity at the deadline. The 6’7 wing is coming off the best year of his career where he averaged 21.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.6 assists in 32.1 minutes per game. He is a career 39.4 percent 3-point shooter and can defend multiple positions.

Bogey is set to make $20 million this season with just $2 million guaranteed for the 2024-25 season. It is virtually a team option to keep or trade the veteran wing next summer. The 34-year-old could be eager to join a contender, and the Pistons are rumored to be searching for a first-round draft pick in return.

Daryl Morey and the Philadelphia 76ers will be searching for another scorer, shot-creator, and defender before the deadline in hopes of making a deep playoff run. Bojan Bogdanovic is a proven contributor with a versatile skill set that can be acquired at a reasonable price.
