The Philadelphia 76ers have a very talented duo leading the way in Joel Embiid and James Harden as they continue on their quest for a title. The Sixers could use some more depth around the star duo, but they could also go the third-star route in order to help Embiid and Harden.

With that being said, now that it’s the offseason, the focus bow turns to making adjustments to the roster and looking to improve in order to contend in the East with the likes of the Boston Celtics, the Milwaukee Bucks, and the Miami Heat.

In order to make trades, a team has to give up some value to get value.  HoopsHype put together a list of the top 100 players in the league based on their trade value and Philadelphia’s four best players are on the list.

The number next to their name denotes their place on the list:

70. Tobias Harris

Harris will be the most popular name on the market for the Sixers due to his bloated contract and HoopsHype ranks him 70th on their trade value list:

Harris remains a great role player, but his contract has limited his trade value over the last few seasons. With only two years left on it, his value has slowly grown solely based on the passage of time.

52. James Harden

Harden being so low on the list is a bit of a shock initially, but when one remembers that he is probably going to opt in to his $47 million player option for the 2022-23 season, that is when the logic kicks in.

HoopsHype on Harden:

Harden being this low while peers like DeMar DeRozan and Chris Paul are higher might have more to do with Harden’s current contractual situation. He can remain the same player and have a much higher trade value if his next contract has him earning $30-40 million annually instead of $50-60 million.

37. Tyrese Maxey

Maxey is much higher on this list due to the fact that he took big steps forward in his second season all while making only $2.6 million in the 2021-22 season. He has a team option for $2.7 million in 2022-23 as he looks to take another step forward in his third season.

HoopsHype on Maxey:

The Sixers are extremely fortunate not only to have a third potential star in Maxey but to have him earn less than $3 million in the next two seasons as they navigate challenges building the roster. He should steadily climb these rankings and maintain strong value on his next contract.

5. Joel Embiid

Of course, Embiid is untouchable so Sixers fans shouldn’t read too much into him being on a list about trade value. However, he is an elite 7-footer who would garner a lot of assets should Philadelphia ever decide to move him.

HoopsHype on Embiid:

The two-time MVP runner-up has so much equity in Philadelphia, they probably still wouldn’t consider trading Embiid even if some of his previous injuries start resurfacing into something long-term. He would probably be a little higher on this list if not for his health history.
