Insider believes Sixers will focus on smaller trades before the deadline

The Philadelphia 76ers have big plans for the 2022-23 season as they have their eyes on their first title since 1983. The Sixers have legitimate stars in Joel Embiid and James Harden, a rising one in Tyrese Maxey, and a versatile scorer in Tobias Harris so they will have a shot to come out of the East.

As the Feb. 9 trade deadline approaches, president Daryl Morey is likely going to make some type of move in order to help the Sixers move forward. Whether it be on the floor right now or making some type of move to help save more money to spend in the summer, one has to figure that something will happen.

On an episode of “Please Don’t Aggregate This”, insider Jake Fischer offered up some information about Philadelphia’s plans before the deadline:

I think they’ll be looking more on the margins of things where that’s kind of been historically the tinkerings that Morey has done dating back to Houston midseason, and Furkan Korkmaz, hardly playing right now for this team, or inconsistent in his usage off the bench, on the hook for another $5.3 million next year, definitely been a name I’ve heard rival teams speculate as someone to be looked to move.

Korkmaz is averaging 4.2 points and 1.4 rebounds while playing in just 20 games thus far ar 11.5 minutes per game. The minutes are the lowest since his rookie season when he averaged 5.7 minutes per night. It would make sense if Philadelphia looked into moving the five-year veteran out of Turkey.
