8. Grand Theft Alvarado could make Philadelphia his new robbery spot

New Orleans was one of the biggest what-ifs this season. They entered the playoffs with Zion Williamson hobbled once again and save for a commendable Game 1 performance, the top-seeded Oklahoma City Thunder quickly put them to sleep, sweeping them in convincing fashion to the point where the front office will probably look into making big changes this offseason.

CJ McCollum and Dyson Daniels seem secure right now in the lead guard position, but the same cannot be said for Jose Alvarado, a key backup who’s had issues staying on the court since his rookie campaign.

Alvarado, however, could be a bargain candidate. Since his injury history could dampen his price tag, the 76ers could actually be one of the teams that make the most sense for the 26-year-old. While undersized, Alvarado is a notably sneaky and pesky defender who thrives in the open court, bomb away from long distance, and set up his teammates in short spurts.
