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

3. Kris Dunn — PG/SG (Utah)

Philadelphia’s employment of De’Anthony Melton as a low-usage connector on offense who can take on more imposing matchups on defense is imbued with a ton of merit in account of Tyrese Maxey’s inconsistent showings on that end, but his availability has been a big enough issue this season to warrant the belief that the front office could look into a direct switcheroo this offseason.

A cheaper alternative to Melton, who will definitely command an eight-digit figure this summer, would be Kris Dunn. After almost getting booted out of the league for a couple of years, the 29-year-old managed to secure a consistent role with the Jazz as their resident backcourt defender — a move that has served his team well since last season.

Having said that, Utah is likely to seek a younger commodity to replace him next season. Dunn’s market could still look nebulous, but the 76ers are an ideal landing spot for him as he projects to be a seamless rotation player who can playmake, shoot open threes, and most importantly, capably defend scoring guards.
