Report: Sixers Showing Interest in Multiple Guards
By now you are well aware that the Sixers have interest in Raptors guard Kyle Lowry, but he isn't the only player the team is eyeing before Thursday's 3 p.m. trade deadline.
It looks like if the Sixers cant get a deal done for Lowry, they are ready to turn their attention to some other guards. According to ESPN senior NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, the Sixers have shown interest in Toronto's Normal Powell, Lonzo Ball and veteran George Hill.
Powell would be a very interesting addition for the Sixers, the 27-year old guard is hitting on 43.4% of his 3-point shots this season, averaging 19.5 points per game. He could give the Sixers some additional spacing, and scoring off-the-bench. or even slide into the Sixers starting lineup and move Seth Curry to the bench.
Ball is another interesting name, he is a very smart player, but his shot has been getting much better this season. The former No. 2 overall pick is scoring 14.2 points and 5.6 assist per game, shooting 38.5% from behind the arc. It would be interesting to see how the Sixers would use Ball, who is a similar type of player to Ben Simmons, but a better, more willing shooter. He is a smart basketball player, who has a pass first mentality, who has become a good defender.
Hill is a steady veteran point guard who would provide an extra ball handler off-the-bench who can shoot, hitting 38% from 3-point range. He has played in only 14 games this season, missing time after surgery on his thumb. He would pain with Shake Milton in the back court with the Sixers second unit, allowing Milton to play more off the ball.
All three guys would be a welcomed addition to the Sixers rotation, the big question is what would they have to give up in exchange to get one of these guys?
