The Philadelphia 76ers have taken the next step this season thus far. They are currently 28-13 and find themselves at the top of the Eastern Conference. This is something that could continue, especially if they are aggressive at the deadline. It was a busy offseason in Philly and it could continue here.
The 76ers are being led by their stars this season. Joel Embiid is looking like the favorite for the MVP award averaging 29.9 points and 11.5 rebounds per game. He has missed some time with an injury and this could hurt his chances but he is still a frontrunner.
The emergence of Tobias Harris, scoring 20.5 points per game, has taken them to the next level. The contract does not look so bad all of a sudden. Ben Simmons is being his usual self filling up the stat sheet in many ways, except for the three-point line.
If the 76ers want to add another perimeter threat, the Orlando Magic could have the right player. Evan Fournier has played 21 games this season and is scoring 19.5 points per game. When he is on the floor, Fournier is one of the most underrated perimeter threats.
Fournier is a role player can knock down an open three or create his own shot in the midrange. Orlando could be looking to sell at the deadline because they have fallen out of contention in the Eastern Conference.
Fournier would be an ideal candidate to go to Philadelphia and would not be expensive given his contract situation. Here is what it might take to land Fournier in Philly this season.
