While already eliminated from the playoffs, the Philadelphia 76ers are still a recurring topic in the newsstands. After all, the rumor mill has already started churning for the offseason-bound teams, and the franchise has already laid the groundwork for what could be its most active summer in quite some time.

Thanks to Daryl Morey, who’s always in the hunt for the next big name available, the 76ers are undoubtedly going to be uber-aggressive in its pursuit of a third star to pair with Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey. Their ginormous cap space allows them to do that, as the team is slated to have the second-strongest spending power this offseason.

Having said that, the 76ers don’t necessarily have to exhaust their cap space by throwing it all on available free agents. One resort they could make do with is to absorb big contracts into their cap space without sending money in return. This would be perfect for teams looking to retool by parting ways with one of their hot commodities.

Thanks to the playoffs, we now have a grasp of which teams could possibly be amenable to making a big change to their nucleus. Without further ado, here is a trade proposal where the 76ers land that much-coveted third star this offseason.
