The Sixers will be one of the most interesting teams of the NBA off-season this year, thanks to the rise of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons making the franchise one of the most attractive destinations for free agents.
The Sixers are expected to target LeBron James, and probably will put out feelers for Paul George. They've been mentioned as a possible trade partner for Kawhi Leonard.
Sixers coach Brett Brown recently mentioned that the team does need to add one more star.
But what about two more?
Per The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor, that's a legitimate possibility.
The Sixers are in an intoxicating position heading into the future, with two of the NBA's brightest young stars in Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, the No. 10 pick in the upcoming draft, and the cap space to sign a free agent to a max contract.
If I were the Sixers, I'd push hard for Kawhi Leonard, who's spent time rehabbing in New York under the care of Dr. Jonathan Glashow, the 76ers' chief medical officer. If the Sixers went all in with a monster trade package headlined by Markelle Fultz, Dario Saric, Robert Covington, the no. 10 pick, draft-and-stashes, and Jerryd Bayless's salary, they could theoretically have a Big Three with Embiid, Simmons, and Leonard, and still retain max cap space to sign James if J.J. Redick agreed to a deal worth less than $10 million annually.
