Philadelphia 76ers: Adding more depth

Between Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Jimmy Butler, the Philadelphia 76ers are all set on the star front. What they need now is 3-point shooting, consistency and depth outside of J.J. Redick.

Given Markelle Fultz‘s health problems and the issues that have plagued him to this point in his career, anything he provided would be a pleasant surprise, but they can hardly rely on him at this point. Rookie Landry Shamet is already taking on too much responsibility, Wilson Chandler looks washed up and Mike Muscala shouldn’t be starting on a playoff team.

With Trevor Ariza no longer being an option. the Sixers need to find a way to trade for wing depth and 3-point shooting. Their defense is middle-of-the-pack, as is their 3-point efficiency. To take the next step to being a legitimate title contender, they could use some extra depth.
