This season’s outcome is still to be determined, but the Philadelphia 76ers have a strong pretext to start gearing up for the offseason. Projected to free up the biggest cap space this summer, the front office will enjoy an airy pocket in free agency, allowing the franchise to give the roster a facelift not only on the margins, but perhaps, even at its nucleus.

Philadelphia may not win the chip this time, but it is undoubtedly among the boldest win-now franchises in all of basketball, making it an appealing destination for players wanting a taste of winning. Here are four players currently on losing teams who should sign with the 76ers this offseason.

4 Players on losing teams who should sign with the 76ers this summer

1. Tyus Jones — PG (Washington)

Beyond Tyrese Maxey, the 76ers have had a rollercoaster of complementary guards this season to pair next to and back up the first-time All-Star. By virtue of the team having most of its players approaching free agency, it’s safe to say that they are well-armed to make a more definitive move to shore up the backcourt this summer.

One player whom Philadelphia openly pursued before the trade deadline was Tyus Jones. The current lead floor general for the Wizards has turned in a very productive season despite his team’s pathetic record, and he profiles as one of the better gets in free agency for clubs not looking to break the bank.

Jones is once again leading the NBA in assists-to-turnover ratio for the seventh straight year — a brief, yet lucid testament to his facilitating skills. It’s even more impressive considering the fact that Washington touts a messy offense with erratic offensive anchors. While undersized, he’s tries hard on defense, and his playmaking would undoubtedly thrive next to Maxey while allowing him to shed some of his table-setting reps.
