The Philadelphia 76ers are the best team in the Eastern Conference and they could look to be active at the NBA trade deadline coming up. The Sixers may not seem like they need any help, but adding some talent to their roster could be the difference on them playing in the Finals or not.
One player the 76ers could be looking to land is none other than Toronto Raptors shooting guard Norman Powell. Philadelphia has enjoyed the success Seth Curry has had this season at the shooting guard position, but his backup Danny Green hasn’t lived up to the expectations that was set for him.
Powell, a 27 year old UCLA alum, has emerged as a legitimate threat from all areas on the floor for the Toronto Raptors but could be dealt in exchange for some great value.
Landing Powell won’t be an easy task, but a team like the 76ers could give the Raptors an offer they would have to at least strongly consider. There will be plenty of other worthy suitors so Philadelphia would need to make it worthwhile to Toronto,
While the Raptors don’t seem to be actively shopping Norman Powell, shopping him does make sense seeing how his contract has just one full season left on it. Landing Powell won’t be easy, but let’s take a look at what it could take to get a deal done.
