What was once a promising season for the Philadelphia 76ers has recently taken a disastrous turn. Just as Joel Embiid was playing like a reigning MVP and looking hungry for a championship, he is now set to miss extended time due to a meniscus injury.

The 76ers are of course devastated by the news, but no one is going to feel sorry for them. In the meantime, they must seek to get better while Embiid works on returning to the court. With the trade deadline just a few short days away, we will look at four dream targets for Philadelphia, along with what each player would likely cost them to acquire.

1. Andre Drummond

With Embiid out of the lineup, one of the obvious needs for the Sixers becomes frontcourt depth. Paul Reed is currently starting at center, and having to rely on him for any type of scoring or rebounding for an extended stretch is simply not a good business model.

Drummond brings a polished rebounding and rim protecting presence to any team. His offense does not extend outside the paint, but he is lethal in pick-and-roll actions with any capable ball handler.

As for what the 76ers would have to give up to acquire him, the Bulls would likely be asking for multiple second-rounders along with an additional player or two.
