The 2023-24 season still has a lot left to offer, but the Philadelphia 76ers are one of the handful of teams who can appropriately look forward to the offseason. After all, they will have a wide legroom for a roster shakeup, thanks in large part to the king-sized cap space they will be freeing at the conclusion of the present campaign.

Knowing Daryl Morey’s M.O., the 76ers will undoubtedly tap into the market for established stars. Even so, the franchise has enough spending leeway to pursue some of the lesser known free agents to fill up the roster. Here are five under-the-radar players they should look into signing in the upcoming offseason.

5 Under-the-radar free agents the 76ers should sign this offseason

1. Caleb Martin — SF/PF

One of the better role players in the league, Miami Heat forward Caleb Martin will be entering free agency this summer, as he’s widely expected to decline his player option to pursue a bigger paycheck. He’s earned it, but the Miami Heat may not be willing to pay a premium for a replaceable rotation piece.

Martin would make a lot of sense as an under-the-radar signing for the 76ers. He can play and capably defend multiple positions, and is a great connector from the forward position. He’s largely a low-usage guy, but he has shown mettle when being shoehorned into bigger roles, such as when he almost bagged the Eastern Conference Finals MVP plum last postseason.

Nicolas Batum, Robert Covington, Tobias Harris, and even KJ Martin are far from locks to remain in Philadelphia next season, making the forard position quite the pressing need for the front office to fill. It remains to be seen is his Miami stint will be enough to raise his price tag significantly, but the 76ers should nonetheless assert themselves in a bidding war for his services.
