Taurean Prince

When both Maxey and Embiid have been off the floor this season, it has been an uphill struggle for Philly to score. Adding defensive-minded guards would be a plus, but more scoring power is still needed as well. We know what Tobias Harris brings to the table, but he can not have the weight of the entire team placed on him.

Three-and-D wings like Taurean Prince are another necessity for this team to add in the offseason. Prince has been streaky for the Lakers this season, but the benefit of the doubt can be given to him seeing how he has been used as a starter for the majority of the season in Los Angeles. Bringing Taurean off the bench in Philadelphia would be a much better use of his talents.

Torrey Craig

Another three-and-D player who could be available in the summer is Torrey Craig. He has a player option with the Chicago Bulls for next season, and could decline it should he opt to play for a contending team instead.

Craig is an experienced wing who has appeared in the playoffs five times in his career. His counting stats may not take a big spike in the playoffs since he is not usually a team's top option, but he consistently raises his level of play when the postseason starts. Craig has proven that he is a valuable depth piece to have given his sharp three-point shooting and switchability on defense.
