2. Philly needs rangier bodies at forward

Signing Paul George and Caleb Martin and re-upping Kelly Oubre Jr. are pretty solid moves for a team that lost its entire forward rotation last season, but it’s far from enough. The 76ers need to have a deeper cast in the position, and they need players who offer length to fit into Nick Nurse’s switchy defensive schemes.

Between Tobias Harris, Nicolas Batum, and Robert Covington, Philadelphia lost three players who stood at least 6’8”. George may fit that archetype, but their other in-house options don’t. Oubre is a more offensive-oriented wing, and Martin, while more than serviceable defensively, struggles against opponents with more brawn.

Similar to the point guard market, the list of forwards still available for plucking is also quite long, even at this juncture. Even better, most players with the same billing in the free agent pool are veterans who would probably be warm to the diea of signing for the veteran’s minimum.

Realistic Targets: Marcus Morris Sr., Jae Crowder, Robert Covington, Cedi Osman, Reggie Bullock
