The Philadelphia 76ers put together one of the worst rosters in basketball and it probably became the worst after they dealt guard Evan Turner to the Indiana Pacers and center Spencer Hawes to the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, it was not enough to catch the Milwaukee Bucks for the league’s worst record.
The best plan of action for the 76ers appears to be getting one of the the two star forwards, either former Kansas Jayhawks’ star Andrew Wiggins or Jabari Parker, formally of the Duke Blue Devils. They could add that to their core of Nerlens Noel, who missed his rookie season with a torn ACL, Michael Carter-Williams and potentially keep Thaddeus Young.
Of course, if the 76ers fall out of the top three (they could go down to five if three teams move into the top three), they’ll have to look at the likes of Australian point guard Dante Exum, former Indiana Hoosiers big man Noah Vonleh, former Kentucky Wildcats’ power forward Julius Randle and former Arizona Wildcats’ forward Aaron Gordon.
According to Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer, the 76ers met with Gordon on Wednesday.
