2. Spencer Dinwiddie

Spencer Dinwiddie has seen his career being on a decline during the last two seasons after three impressive seasons with the Brooklyn Nets between 2018-2020. A serious injury that was limited him to three games during the 2020-21 season cut his huge surge. Dindwiddie gained some of his feet back during his time in Dallas and started to find rhythm after returning to Brooklyn.

However, his game during the 2023-24 season declined sharply as he put averages of just 10.5 points and 4.7 assists averaging an abysmal 48.9% on EFG%. You should argue that the 76ers will have to stay away from a player that experienced those deficiencies during the season. However, Dinwiddie seems to be a competitor that wants to win.

He was criticized for his play during the season and he might come back with a chip on his shoulder after his poor performances in Brooklyn and LA. The Colorado product has proven himself in winning environments, helping the Dallas Mavericks and the Brooklyn Nets a lot during his time there.

He's also capable of sharing the court with other guards, so his presence won't be in an issue playing alongside Tyrese Maxey. Moreover, he can be available in a lower price coming off an abysmal season and searching for a good environment in order to revitalize his career.
