Sixers Extend Daryl Morey, so what’s his next move?
The Sixers extended President of Basketball Operations Daryl Morey through the 2027-2028 season and now he can start to think about what the next moves are for the team.
“Daryl is one of the best front office executives in sports and I greatly value his leadership,” Josh Harris, 76ers Managing Partner, said. “I’m thrilled to have reached an agreement to extend his contract and look forward to working together to maximize our chances of competing for an NBA title.”
While the Feb 8 NBA Trade Deadline is still a little over a month away, Dec 15 is a big day on the NBA calendar. The date represents the day that the 81 free agents who signed in the offseason are now eligible to be traded, opening up many more calls and possibilities for teams looking to improve.
So will Morey be looking to pull the trigger on a move to improve their team sooner or later?
According to Senior NBA reporter Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports, the Sixers will take their time to figure out their next move before the Feb 8 deadline.
Alas, the Sixers are not expected to pursue any significant roster changes until much closer to February’s trade deadline, league sources told Yahoo Sports, no matter how often Philadelphia and the Los Angeles Lakers get linked to Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine.
However, there are some names to keep an eye on as we approach the New Year and trade deadline. The Athletic put out a NBA Trade big board, listing 25 players who could be on the move, now that we have hit Dec 15th on the calendar.
Of the 25 players listed, they have four that were listed as "good fits" for the Sixers, Buddy Hield, Gordon Hayward, Gary Trent Jr. and Alec Burks.
The Sixers could us the three former Clippers they acquired in the James Harden Deal, Marcus Morris Sr., Nicolas Batum or Robert Covington or second-round picks in a deal for one of those names.
