3. Duncan Robinson

While not detrimental this season, bolstering Philadelphia’s 22nd-ranked three-pointers made per outing could give their lethal offense another layer poisonous gear. Enter Duncan Robinson, Miami’s resident gunner who flashed more variance to his skill set during their campaign, resulting in some love for the Most Improved Player plum.

Long deemed to be next in the line of overpaid shooting specialists, Robinson managed to force crack new layers to his game this season. The offensively challenged Heat didn’t provide him with the most ideal of platforms to showcase his skills, but the 30-year-old sharpshooter thrived not only as one of their best shooters, but also as one of their best cutters and rim-runners and one of their better passers.

Miami, in its ever-persistent trek to pluck the next big star, would welcome some cap relief, even if it means cutting ties with the much-improved Robinson. In turn, Philly would be the recipient of the sharpshooter’s frantic offensive game. Imagine the new wrinkles his off-ball movement and shooting would add to Nick Nurse’s free-moving offense.
