The Philadelphia 76ers have most of their players approaching free agency this offseason, the main reason behind their huge cap space heading into next season. The franchise is expected to be the main player this summer, owing to their financial flexibility and in-house assets.

Having said that, their outgoing players can still provide value to the team, such as in direct trades or in sign-and-trade scenarios for potentially hotshot acquisitions. Here are four 76ers who fit the bill and could be traded this summer.

1. Paul Reed

Paul Reed was a promising prospect for the 76ers, with head coach Nick Nurse particularly having big plans for the young big man, but it’s safe to say at this juncture that the franchise simply does not have the foundational patience to invest in non win-now commodities as hinted by their current struggles trying to hold down the fort without Joel Embiid.

As a result, Reed, who was a non-guaranteed deal for the next two seasons, could find himself in the trading block. Philly can guarantee his contract for 2024-25 and try to extract assets from another team who may want to take a flier on him.

Still just 24 years old, Reed still has a lot of time to prove his worth in the league. His motor, positional flexibility, and physicality should be more than intriguing as a project piece for the younger clubs in the league.
