Current 76ers Roster Status

The 2020 offseason was characterized by some major changes for the Philadelphia 76ers. Perhaps most significantly was the team's decision to part ways with long-time head coach Brett Brown, who himself was an integral part of The Process in Philly. Brown departs Philadelphia after seven seasons at the helm with a 221-344 record.

In his place, the Sixers brought on former Los Angeles Clippers’ head man Doc Rivers as the organization's new head coach. Rivers was one of the most high-profile names in the market, and the Sixers made sure to pounce on the opportunity to bring on a former NBA champion coach to Philly.

Notably, the Sixers also added Daryl Morey, former GM of the Houston Rockets, to the front office, naming him as the team's new president of basketball operations. Morey has made a name in the league as an executive, whose high-risk moves often pay dividends for his squad.

For the Sixers, this came in a number of offseason trades which pretty much revamped the squad. Out went Josh Richardson and rookie Tyler Bey, who were both sent to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Seth Curry.

Philly also parted ways with Al Horford and his albatross contract, sending him to the Oklahoma City Thunder along with rookie Theo Maledon, Vasilije Micic, and a future first-round pick. In exchange, the Sixers acquired Danny Green, Terrance Ferguson, and Vincent Poirier.

The Sixers also made a splash in free agency by signing newly-crowned NBA champ Dwight Howard on a one-year deal worth $2.6 million.

Philly drafted a trio of bright prospects in the draft, with 21st overall pick Tyrese Maxey leading the way. The Sixers also brought on Isiah Joe (49th) and Paul Reed (58th).

The most important thing for the Sixers is that, in spite of rumors swirling, they were able to (or decided to) keep both Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons in Philadelphia. Their two superstars are joined by Seth Curry, Danny Green, and Tobias Harris in the starting five.

Shake Milton will continue his campaign as the team's Sixth Man this season, with Mike Scott, Furkan Korkmaz, Howard, Matisse Thybulle, and rookies Maxey and Joe.

philadelphia 76ers Team Analysis

Who Did The 76ers Recently Sign?

Philadelphia's most recent signing came in the form of 6-foot-6 wingman Justin Anderson. The 27-year-old signed a two-year deal with the Sixers is worth $4.0 million.

Last season, Anderson plied his trade with the Brooklyn Nets. In 10 games played, he averaged 2.8 points and 2.1 rebounds in 10.7 minutes per contest. However, shortly before the 2020-21 season, he was waived.

Philadelphia’s last major signing was Dwight Howard.

Who Are The 76ers Targeting In Free Agency?

With not much cap room available, the Sixers weren't expected to make a splash in free agency during the offseason. Nonetheless, the addition of newly-crowned NBA champ Dwight Howard on a one-year deal worth just $2.6 million was a significant development for Philly. Howard is no longer the dominant All-Star he once was, but he adds some much needed depth to the 76ers' frontcourt.

Other free agents that were linked to the Sixers included Alec Burks, Kyle Korver, Isaiah Thomas, D.J. Augustin, and Trey Burke.

Who Did The 76ers Most Recently Trade For?

The Sixers made a few significant moves in the offseason, which will have major implications on their squad for the coming season.

Their latest trade transaction centered around Al Horford, who they sent to the Oklahoma City Thunder along with Vasilije Micic, Theo Maledon, a 2020 second-round pick, and a 2025 first-round pick. In exchange, the Thunder sent Danny Green, Terrance Ferguson, and Vincent Poirier to Philadelphia.

What Is The Best 76ers Roster Of All-Time?

The 1966-67 Sixers has to go down as the greatest lineup in franchise history. Aside from winning the title that year -- defeating the San Francisco Warriors 4-2 in the Finals -- this team also amassed 62 wins that season, which still stands as the most regular-season wins in franchise history.

Wilt Chamberlain was the centerpiece of that squad, but he also had the great Hal Greer playing alongside him. Wali Jones, Chet Walker, and Luke Jackson represented the other members of the starting five.

Larry Costello, Bill Mellchioni, and Dave Gambee were a few other notable names from that memorable squad.

What Is The 76ers' Salary Cap?

The Sixers did a commendable job in clearing some cap room for the upcoming season by primarily trading away Al Horford and the $27.5 million he is owed next season. Philadelphia sent the former All-Star big man to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Danny Green, Terrance Ferguson, and Vincent Poirier, who combine for roughly $21.9 million in salaries. Moreover, Philly also sent Josh Richardson ($10.8 million) to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Seth Curry ($7.8 million).

Once you factor in all of the 76ers' guaranteed contracts for 2020-21, however, this team is likely still going to operate over the cap for the coming season, with a possible luxury tax bill forthcoming.
