5 Former All-Stars the 76ers can sign for cheap in the offseason

2. Mike Conley — PG (UFA)

The 76ers will focus on collecting more win-now pieces in the offseason, so it makes sense for them to beef up their fragile backcourt outside of Maxey. Kyle Lowry’s efficiency has seen a drastic decline, Cameron Payne is a near-lock to go in free agency, and De’Anthony Melton is oft-injured.

One player they can look to add is veteran playmaker Mike Conley, who’s still a very productive player in Year 17 for the Timberwolves. He’s flourished as a pass-first, low-usage guard tallying 6.4 assists while turning the ball over just 1.1 times per outing. His 44.2 percent conversion rate from downtown is also a career-high.

Few point guards as as battle-tested and heady as Conley, whose experience spans more than a decade. He’s still an adept defender, even in the point of attack, and would be a tremendous mentor to Maxey. Minnesota isn’t letting him go, but Philly shouldn’t be forced to break the bank even if they have to overpay to contend with his current club.
