4 Buyout targets the 76ers should sign to fill last two roster spots

1. Chimezie Metu — PF/C

The 76ers are in dire need of reinforcement in the big man position. Naturally, Chimezie Metu tops this list. Release just recently by the banged-up Memphis Grizzlies, the 26-year-old will inevitably end up on an NBA roster this season.

Metu has seen only limited action in the last couple of years, but he’s remained productive in short spurts. An energizer bunny off the bench, the former Sacramento King is a capable finisher around the rim who can hit the occasional three, albeit at a below-average rate.

Nevertheless, Philadelphia needs a springy big man on the interim, given the fact that the available big men in the market primarily consist of veterans at the twilight of their careers. For the short-term, Metu makes a lot of sense, especially since the 76ers have no shortage of scoring options anyway.
