With a 32-22 win-loss card heading into the All-Star break, the Philadelphia 76ers remain seated at fifth place in the Eastern Conference, and are two full games ahead of the sixth-seeded Pacers for the final guaranteed playoff spot.

Joel Embiid won’t be with the team for the foreseeable future as he recovers from surgery while the 76ers tread a difficult schedule for the rest of the season. Signing Kyle Lowry from the buyout market iwass a nice move to try and stay afloat, but they will undoubtedly need more if they want to stay out of the play-in tournament.

Here are four players still available on the market the 76ers should sign to fill their last two roster spots.

4. Danny Green — SG/SF

Danny Green signed a one-year deal for a second go-round with the 76ers last summer, but was eventually let go to make room for the James Harden trade. There were murmurs of the team potentially signing him back, but so far, nothing has materialized, at least not yet.

Late-season signings are most often catered toward depth insurances, and the veteran Green will supply just that. While definitely on the last leg of his career, the three-time champion’s winning experience, defensive IQ, and spot-up shooting are all desirable bits you’d want from a third-stringer. His locker room presence would also be much welcome as the 76ers navigate the end of the season.
