Fans of the Philadelphia 76ers are likely waiting with bated breath for the return of reigning MVP Joel Embiid. At the moment, Embiid is set to make his return ahead of the playoffs, but some fans may be looking further into the future, to the offseason. The Sixers have plans for the 2024 offseason and have been careful not to take on unnecessary salaries that would negatively affect their cap space.

Actually, the reason they didn't extend Tyrese Maxey was to preserve cap space since he has a small cap hold since he was taken with the 20th pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Even their trade deadline moves, including acquiring Buddy Hield, give them flexibility. On the other hand, the Utah Jazz are in rebuild mode, though they have several talented veterans that are likely to draw plenty of interest this summer.

That leads us to an interesting off-season trade proposal between the Sixers and Jazz that would dramatically alter both teams. Next, we will take a look at a potential blockbuster deal and whether the Sixers and Jazz would agree to the hypothetical trade.
