As the Philadelphia 76ers attempt to bolster their bench with cheap labor around their pricey stars, here are five options with the No. 34 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Due to half the Philadelphia 76ers roster being ticketed for free agency this July, it’s likely that a few important pieces sign elsewhere. Considering how much money the team will invest in guys like Jimmy Butler and (ideally) Tobias Harris, there won’t be a huge pool of finances to pay anyone other than incumbents.
That puts an emphasis on the 2019 NBA Draft, an event where the Sixers can stock up on underpaid youth in an attempt to stay competitive when one or two stars take a seat. The draft is the most cost-effective method to build a roster through, as this franchise should know quite well.
Since two picks will be made by Philly before No. 34, it’s unnecessary to belabor what the team needs in this draft. Put simply, it’s depth across all positions.
So depending on how the Sixers’ picks at No. 24 and 33 go, here are five other candidates (who weren’t mentioned as candidates pick No. 33 already) that could be worth taking.
