5 potential point guard trade targets heading into the Trade Deadline: Malcolm Brogdon
Last but not least is the NBA reigning Sixth Man of the Year Malcolm Brogdon. After winning the award with the contending Boston Celtics last season, the combo guard was traded to the Portland Trail Blazers this offseason as a part of the Jrue Holiday deal. Now he's starting on this rebuilding team.
Brogdon can't be the long term solution at point guard for the Blazers due to them just drafting Scoot Henderson this past offseason. At this point in his career, Brogdon should be contributing to a contender. The Philadelphia 76ers would be the best team for Brogdon to help win a title.
The Sixers a legit scoring option coming off the bench and Brogdon would fill that role perfectly and he'd be a clear upgrade at the backup point guard position. He can play on and off the ball which means he and Tyrese Maxey can co-exist together on offense. It should also be noted Brogdon is 6-foot-5 and is a positile defender which should help him and Maxey share the floor for long stretches of time. Below is a potential trade.
The Blazers come away with two expiring contracts and a first round pick for the combo guard. It should allow Scoot Henderson full reigns at the point guard position too and allow them to tank a bit more for the next draft. The Sixers only give up one rotation player off the bench for a sixth who is currently averaging 15.3 points and 5.2 assists so it should be a win-win for both teams.
Any of these trade would improve the Philadelphia 76ers depth, but which one was your favorite? Comment which one you like the best.
