3 players who Sixers should look into trading for in 2022-23 season




 

The Philadelphia 76ers are off to a 12-11 start to begin the 2022-23 season which is not exactly what most had in mind when the Sixers made the moves they made in the offseason. Granted, that is mostly due to losing James Harden, Tyrese Maxey, and Joel Embiid for stretches of time, but they could still use a move.

President Daryl Morey has never been one to shy away from any big move if he feels like it will help put his team in a better position to compete for and win a title. The Sixers could use some more legitimate two-way players and there are some options out there that Philadelphia could possibly look into.

Eric Gordon

Gordon is a guy the Sixers have been targeting recently as they continue to find the right pieces around Harden and Embiid. His shooting numbers are down to begin the 2022-23 season at 43.8% overall and 35% from deep, but he is averaging 12.2 points and 2.5 assists. He is somebody who can knock down 3s, he can play defense, and he can also put the ball on the floor, and create for others. He's the definition of a Morey guy.

Kelly Oubre Jr.

Oubre Jr. is not much of a shooter, 31.3% from deep on 7.3 attempts, but he brings a scorer's mentality to the floor. He's averaging 19.8 points for a Charlotte Hornets team dealing with their own injury issues to their top players. He would be a bench piece in Philadelphia, but he is a guy who brings a lot of length and athleticism to a team who needs it.

Jordan Clarkson

Clarkson has earned a starting job with the Utah Jazz who are off to a surprisingly good start, but considering the idea for the Jazz has been to target Victor Wembanyama in the draft, they might want to think about trading some of their top stars. Clarkson, the 2021 6th Man of the Year, is averaging 19.5 points and 4.8 assists to begin the season for Utah and he would bring instant offense off the bench in Philadelphia.
