What's next for 76ers after early elimination


The 76ers have the most interesting offseason of any team this summer. President Daryl Morey will have a ton of different paths that he can pursue, and you better believe that he is looking into all of them. 

Nailing those decisions is absolutely essential after a disappointing first-round exit to the Knicks in the 2024 NBA Playoffs. Joel Embiid is 30 years old and the clock is ticking on how much longer Philadelphia will have to build a true contender around him. Morey has the ability to completely flip over the roster, or (more likely) pick and choose which players he will bring back. 

The team also can bring Tyrese Maxey back on a contract that could pay him a maximum of $205 million over five years, per ESPN’s Bobby Marks. The 76ers will have his restricted rights, so there is little concern that he will go somewhere else. 

Here are the options that the Sixers will have available to them.

The 76ers have a ton of free agents on their roster. Embiid’s $51.4 million is the only fully guaranteed salary on the team’s cap sheet.

Here are the players that Morey will need to make decisions on:


Maxey is obviously coming back. If the 76ers decide not to pursue outside free agents (more on that later), then they could potentially bring back all of these players if they wanted to.

Melton, Batum and Oubre have all played well for Philadelphia when healthy. They’re low-salary veterans who should be brought back. Hield hasn’t been as good as advertised after the Sixers traded for him, but he makes sense as a volume shooter next to Embiid. 

One name that Sixers fans will be happy to see go is Harris. The overpaid starter is finally all the way through the five-year, $180 million deal he signed back in 2019. The Pistons are rumored to have interest in him, according to The Inquirer’s Keith Pompey

The 76ers have Embiid locked up for at least another two seasons. Reed’s contract would have been guaranteed had they made it past the first round. Philadelphia is the only team with such little guaranteed money on its roster.
