3 Free Agents the 76ers Should Sign for the Veteran Minimum

3 Free Agents the 76ers Should Sign for the Veteran Minimum

The Philadelphia 76ers are the winners of free agency. Regardless of what else they do this offseason, they are probably the team that has bolstered their roster the most. After entering the summer with only Joel Embiid on the books for next season, the Sixers have managed to assemble an elite rotation. After retaining Tyrese Maxey and signing Paul George, GM Daryl Morey continued his impressive run by handing team-friendly deals to Kelly Oubre Jr., Caleb Martin, Andre Drummond and Eric Gordon.

They still need to complete the rest of the roster, though. To do that, they’ll have to rely on some experienced minimum contracts. Luckily for them, there are still some solid role players on the market who are willing to come to Philadelphia for a minimum contract. Let’s take a look.

This should be the most obvious goal for the Sixers. It’s actually quite surprising that this hasn’t happened yet. Perhaps there is a mutual understanding between the two sides about a potential deal, but we have yet to see any progress on that front.

The 38-year-old guard signed with the Sixers after the trade deadline last year and played a huge role in the final stages of the season, starting all six playoff games and playing more than 29 minutes per game.

Obviously, he wouldn’t be as big a factor in next year’s regular season, but his veteran prowess would come in handy in the playoffs. He’s still a dangerous shooter and a capable playmaker on the offensive end. Combine that with his transitioning ability and defensive toughness in short bursts, and Kyle Lowry is one of the best additions the Sixers could make on a veteran-minimum deal.
