Ranking 76ers' Top Trade Targets After 2024 NBA Playoff Loss

3. Dorian Finney-Smith, Brooklyn Nets

If that's the aim, Dorian Finney-Smith could fit this roster like a tailored suit.

His defense is top-notch and about as versatile as you'll find. When he's at his most valuable, though, he pairs that stingy defense with steady three-point stroke.

His shot has been a bit off the past two seasons (34.3 percent), but there are reasons—namely, his 38.9 percent splash rate from the three campaigns prior—to believe he could bounce back in a big way.

2. Mikal Bridges, Brooklyn Nets

While there are no indications the Nets want to move Bridges, the Sixers could test that resolve by putting an aggressive trade offer on the table. 

He is every bit the disruptive two-way wing they've been missing ever since Jimmy Butler bounced in 2019, and with his 28th birthday a few months away, Bridges should be in the heart of his prime.

He has looked a bit overmatched as a primary option in Brooklyn, but being able to play off of Embiid and Maxey would help bring out his best. Bridges could go full-throttle on the defensive end and choose his spots offensively.

1. Paul George, Los Angeles Clippers (Sign-and-Trade)

George is everything Philly could want to round out its Big Three and then some. He is a legitimate lockdown defender who can carry an offense, serve as an off-ball shooter or do anything in between.
