3. Oshae Brissett could be an immense bargain for the 76ers

Putting a third-stringer on this list seems counterintuitive, but the 76ers also need to look at cheaper commodities in free agency, especially if their plan to lure a third star comes to fruition, thereby sapping most of their pecuniary wiggle room this summer.

Oshae Brissett, a seldom-used tweener from Boston, certainly didn’t have the best season of his career in his first year in Beantown, but there’s still enough data to extrapolate from his previous stint in Indiana to warrant the belief that he can be a productive player in the NBA when given court time.

When given ample minutes with the Pacers, the 25-year-old showed glimpses of being a steady hand from the forward position, averaging double-digits in scoring, corralling 5.4 rebounds per outing, and shooting an above-average clip from downtown. Factor in his uncanny defensive instincts, and you’ve got for yourselves a possible bargain-in-the-making.
