Philadelphia 76ers: 4 bad contracts worth trading for this offseason

3. Duncan Robinson

Depending on Buddy Hield’s free agency situation, the 76ers could have a hard time finding a replacement for him should other teams pull out an unmatchable offer for the veteran sharpshooter. Enter Duncan Robinson, who managed to shed some of his bad reps due to his then-albatross contract.

Robinson’s numbers don’t pop out this season, but he’s made significant waves in veering away from his one-dimensional izzat. There was some clamor for him as a candidate for Most Improved Player, and while he’s unlikely to bag the award (thanks to a certain Sixer and a few others), the 29-year-old is still among the most lethal off-ball threats in the entire association thanks to his more well-rounded game as a space diver and smart cutter.

The sharpshooter is not signed for much longer (he has an Early Termination Option for 2025-26), but Miami would still likely be amenable to finding a taker for his contract. After all, their championship window is starting to close, and Pat Riley’s constant MO means that they would try once again to do the necessary prep work to chase a big name this summer.
