The Philadelphia 76ers have been rolling this season and have been one of the top teams in the entire NBA all season long, but this did not stop them from being aggressive at this year’s trade deadline. They were very close to having a deal done with the Toronto Raptors for Kyle Lowry, but after trade talks died down on this front, they decided to trade for veteran guard George Hill. 

Not only does this team have what it takes to be a potential championship-caliber team, but with Joel Embiid close to returning from his knee injury, the Sixers have a real chance to win an Eastern Conference regular season title for the first time since the 2000-01 season. 

Whether or not they win the title this season, the Philadelphia 76ers will still be looking for ways to add more talent to their roster in the offseason, which is why they could potentially target a guy like Eric Gordon on the Rockets.

Houston has been a complete mess this year and from trading Westbrook before the season to handling the whole James Harden saga completely wrong from a management perspective, this team is now facing a big uphill journey and rebuilding process. As a result, a veteran player like Erci Gordon could be very much available in trade talks and his value may be down since he has been injured over the years. 

With Danny Green set to become a free agent and the Sixers looking to sustain their success, could Philly look to execute an offseason trade for Eric Gordon? Let’s take a look at what this trade could potentially look like.
