Four reasons the 76ers should keep their eyes on Zach LaVine

The Sixers may be on the hunt for another offensive creator this summer to complement Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey. Daryl Morey should have Chicago's front office on speed dial.

LaVine would take pressure off Embiid and Maxey

Even when the team is at full health, the Sixers would be best served by having a player who can help to take pressure off of Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey. LaVine would be that player. He is elite when it comes to getting his own buckets and when he is on, he commands double teams.

LaVine is a legit 25-point scorer, and he can get buckets from all three levels. He would likely slot in as the third option, although he could take turns with Maxey as the number two depending on which one of them has the better shooting touch on a given night. This is an incredible luxury for a team to have. Being able to take turns as the go-to perimeter scorer would also boost the efficiency of both players.
