The Philadelphia 76ers are about to begin their offseason along with the rest of the league. However, backup point guard, Cameron Payne is facing some legal trouble after being arrested on Friday morning.

Reports indicate that Cameron Payne was arrested, “after cops claim he gave officers a false report,” according to TMZ Sports. The alleged incident took place in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The 76ers had a disappointing end to their season after being eliminated in the playoffs. Even the regular season wasn't that great, as Philadelphia entered the postseason as a seven seed through the Play-In Tournament. So, the franchise is certainly hoping to improve moving forward.

To do so, the 76ers are going to need a big offseason. The good news is the organization will have plenty of cap space to make a splash in free agency. Additionally, there's a chance Philly makes a big trade to bring in another star player as well. When it comes down to it, this team could add one or two big-name players to play alongside Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey.

If that's the case, then Philadelphia needs to make sure to also think about the depth of the roster. We just watched the Phoenix Suns go all out on their starting lineup but the lack of depth crushed them in the playoffs. If the 76ers can do it right, they have a real chance to build a top-tier roster to challenge the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference.
