2. Bruce Brown

One of the hottest names on the trade market, Bruce Brown has been in rumors for numerous teams around the league. It is no surprise that he is such a hot commodity given his offensive prowess and ability to provide a spark to an offense.

Brown has bounced around since winning the NBA championship with the Nuggets last June. Signing with the Indiana Pacers in the offseason, he was re-routed to Toronto in the trade for Pascal Siakam. With Bruce now in a city he did not ask to be in, many are speculating that he would like to get out sooner rather than later.

The hole Brown would be able to fill in Philadelphia is the one involving perimeter creation. Outside of Tyrese Maxey, the team is sorely lacking in guards who can create their own shot. Getting someone as elite as Bruce in that category would go a long way toward helping the Sixers stay alive in the East playoff race.

By all accounts, Philly would almost certainly have to give up a first-round pick in order to acquire Brown. Raptors President Masai Ujiri is reportedly asking teams for a package revolving around a first-rounder in exchange for Bruce.
