1. The 76ers should try to go younger at the margins

Compared to previous years, Philadelphia isn’t riding on the back of aging players. Aside from the 34-year-old Paul George and the 35-year-old Eric Gordon, all of their rotation players are either in the middle of their primes or just approaching their peak form.

Daryl Morey and company should let that trend continue. The 76ers don’t necessarily have the most sturdiest players from an injury standpoint, and investing on fresh legs should serve them well both in the short and long run. There are still a lot of younger commodities in free agency who can function as depth insurance and reclamation projects for Philly.

The team still has a handful of roster spots to fill out, and tendering those to young guns looking for a fresh start or role realignment would be a wise and cost-friendly way to maximize what’s left of their financial leg room. The 76ers are built upon a very moldable core anyway, making them an ideal destination for those in want of an opportunity to play and contribute when needed.

Realistic Targets: Kira Lewis Jr., KJ Martin, Sandro Mamukelashvili, Jordan Nwora
