1. The 76ers must trade for Alex Caruso on draft day at all costs

Arguably the prize of the draft on the trading table, Alex Caruso is widely viewed as a pretty obtainable target after a year of willful resistance from Chicago’s brass. The Bulls are now likely to start dropping the hammer on their veterans to pivot to a youth movement, and the two-time All-Defensive Team member would quickly net them some much-needed draft capital to kickstart a rebuild.

The 76ers have reportedly locked in on Caruso as their main target come draft day, and the front office could definitely lure the Bulls into biting into an offer centered on their first-round pick this year. Other win-now teams would try to one-up them, but Philadelphia has more than enough sweeteners to make the pot very tempting for Chicago.

Given the 76ers’ need for backcourt help and a boost in the perimeter defense department, no other role player fits better than Caruso. Not only would he be a tremendous addition to a team in need of players who thrive in the intangibles, but he would also stabilize a backcourt that has solely depended on Tyrese Maxey this season.
