3. Former Philadelphia enemy Grant Williams might just do the trick

Grant Williams has been subject to undeserved ridicule in the last couple of seasons, but the fact remains that he was a pivotal player for two powerhouses before ultimately getting traded out of town.

Admittedly, Williams registered a meager season for the Mavericks last season as went on to get flipped to the Hornets at the trade deadline. However, the five-year tweener played the best stretch of basketball in his career — at least in the regular season — playing for the Teal and White as their de facto sixth man, logging a career-best 13.9 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 3.2 assists in 30.6 minutes per outing.

76ers fans may not be too fond of Williams from his relatively long stay with archrival Boston, but given that we probably won’t be an expensive player to get from youth-centric Charlotte, the front office could do much worse than take a flier on someone who plays a position of need, functions as a reliable connector and spot-up shooter (when not scared to do so) on offense, and consistently defends multiple positions well.
