Over the last few seasons, the Philadelphia 76ers have stood out as one of the most aggressive franchises in chasing after big names. Be it through free agency or the trade market, under Daryl Morey’s leadership, the team has never shied away from hunting lucrative players even if the price tag is too steep or the fit too tricky.
So, while the 76ers appear to be in great shape in what is willed to be a bounce-back campaign, betting on the team to suddenly pump the brakes in that front is an unwise wager. Philly may have been among the best teams in the association to begin the season, but the litany of players expected to be made available for future plucking will be an impediment to those who desire for the club to stay as is.
The Philadelphia 76ers will undoubtedly be major players in the trade market this season
One of those players who could very well be involved in a switcheroo this season is veteran and perennial All-Star DeMar DeRozan. The Bulls are teetering in their direction as a franchise, as their disposition has become quite out-of-touch with the reality that they clearly have a limited ceiling as a collective.
Many are penciling Chicago in as the annual team who holds a fire sale, and DeRozan, as one of their linchpins, will undoubtedly net them considerable returns despite his contract situation. Together with Zach LaVine, Nikola Vucevic, and even Alex Caruso, he is poised to play for his fourth team sooner than later.
Without further ado, let us examine a proposed trade scenario which has the 76ers acquiring DeRozan from the Bulls as they attempt to stand out in a crowded Eastern Conference up top.
