After trading away Nikola Vucevic, Aaron Gordon and Evan Fournier at the NBA trade deadline this year, the Orlando Magic have entered yet another rebuilding process, which means they could look to trade veteran wing Terrence Ross in the offseason.
The 30-year-old veteran has played in 36 games for the Magic this season and has been quite productive when healthy, averaging 16.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists and shooting 36% from beyond-the-arc. In fact, Ross ranks 6th in the league in points off-the-bench this season.
After this season, Ross will have two years left on his contract with him being owed $12.5M for the 2021-22 season and $11.5M for the 2022-23 season with no team or player options on his contract.
Ross will be a very intriguing trade target for many playoff-caliber teams this offseason, which is why the Philadelphia 76ers could be interested in Terrence Ross.
Philadelphia has been interested in Ross for a while now and explored the possibility of adding him before the NBA trade deadline, but they were never able to extend trade talks with the Orlando Magic since they were looking to deal anyone and everything within their organization.
With a favorable contract and the ability to be one of the best bench players in the league, Terrence Ross could definitely make a difference for the Sixers championship chances, especially if they do not win a title this season. So how could the Sixers make a trade for the veteran Ross work?
