5 Free agents the Philadelphia 76ers should avoid at all costs this offseason

5. Patty Mills — PG

If Philly manages to come out successful in their well-documented hunt for a third star, their cap space will capsize instantly, forcing them to tap into the veteran’s minimum market to fill out the roster for next season.

And for a win-now team like the 76ers, even veterans on the twilight of their careers will inevitably have a chance in account of the context of a cap space-sapped team. Depending on what happens with Kyle Lowry vis-a-vis retirement, point guard play could be a position the team would want to bolster, even from just an experience standpoint.

One player who fits that description is Patty Mills, a well-respected veteran who has long carved a career for himself as a backup. However, his glory days in San Antonio (which culminated in a well-revered title in 2014) have escaped him since, and the 76ers should probably look elsewhere if they want a locker room presence who can rise from the bench when needed and actually not just be an old dummy.
