The Philadelphia 76ers can be said be as the winner for the free agency 2019 in Easter Conference despite losing their star players. Jimmy Butler and J.J. Redick left the team of 76ers and they were an important part of the roster. Al Horford from Boston Celtics and Josh Richardson from the Miami Heat were signed up for a new deal.
The Milwaukee Bucks is the only team that looks stronger than the 76ers for the next season. To win over that, the Philly team needs a few more players to balance the roster. Here are the possible deals of Philadelphia 76ers with Jamal Crawford, Trey Burke, and Thabo Sefolosha.
The Philadelphia 76ers are in dire need of a tall shooter as Butler and Redick have left the team. In such a situation, the veteran player Jamal Crawford can be a great addition to the team. Even though Crawford is 40 years old and has gotten slow, he is still great at shooting. He has a career record of 34.8 percent of shooting from the arc and can be a great addition in the 76ers team.

The Philadelphia 76ers are also lacking in backcourt depth and only have Raul Neto and Ben Simmons at the point guard positions. Trey Burke last season had an average of 10.9 points, 1.0 three-pointers, 1.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists in the total of 19 minutes he played. The best part about Burke is that he doesn’t need support and create his own shots, which is the 76ers needs right now.
Thabo Sefolosha is a great defender with lots of experience and can change the game on his own. The 6 foot 7-inch talented player is also ready to take less salary if he is signed for a longer deal. The 76ers knows this very well and might offer Selofosha a veteran’s minimum contract. The Philly team will have to make some tough decisions to make it big in the next NBA season.
Two free agent updates:
1. Thabo Sefolosha and the Sixers reportedly have mutual interest.
2. Jamal Crawford liked a tweet describing him as well as Carmelo Anthony as free agent options for the Sixers. @… https://t.co/DH7GqvpbvC
