This morning, Ringer’s Kevin O’Connor published a story about teams competing for the Eastern Conference championship. Among the tidbits he shared are some potentially noteworthy bits about the 76ers:
“At the same time, the 76ers can buy a lot of their own. League sources said that the Philadelphia bid for Harden failed to materialize, but Philadelphia is still looking for major measures to increase its championship odds. The trade market still needs to be in the coming weeks. Formation, so the actual goal is not yet clear. But it is worth mentioning that the Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry (Kyle Lowry), he is the Phillies in the final season of active contract, now 34 years old. Senior perimeter The shot creator is the only thing the 76ers really lack, and there are not many other players at the Laurie level that can theoretically get it.”;
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski has a similar view recently:
. @wojespn said on NBA Countdown: “Daryl Morey has been active and he is always looking for a huge deal… it may not be available before this trade deadline. The Sixers need improvement. Two aspects: one 4/5 person can shoot, and two players.

What seems clear is that Daryl Morey, president of 76ers basketball operations, is certainly not satisfied with the team’s current lineup and position in the conference. The Sixers rank first in the Eastern Conference, yes, but the team has only 5-5 in the past 10 games and now only has a half-time lead in the hot Brooklyn Nets.
Morey seems to be eager to increase the team’s big bucks in a meaningful way to increase the 76ers’ championship odds. The only question is whether such players can be found before the NBA’s March 25 trading deadline.
