NBA survey gives Sixers 2 votes for having best offseason in 2022

The Philadelphia 76ers had a very busy offseason. After falling in the Eastern Conference semifinals for the fourth time in five seasons, the Sixers knew it was time to make changes.

They pulled the trigger on a draft night trade to acquire De’Anthony Melton from the Memphis Grizzlies. Then they struck quickly in free agency, bringing in PJ Tucker, Danuel House Jr. and Trevelin Queen on deals to upgrade the depth.

ESPN conducted a survey of 15 NBA coaches, scouts and executives to discuss the happenings around the league and the Sixers received two votes for having the best offseason in the league. The Boston Celtics received the most votes with six while the Utah Jazz also received two votes.

The survey on the Sixers:

The only other team to receive more than a single vote was Philadelphia, which was praised for, in similar fashion, being able to address some weaknesses this summer by adding P.J. Tucker, Danuel House and De’Anthony Melton.

“They plugged holes,” a West scout said. “I don’t think it made them the best team, but they addressed their weaknesses pretty well.”

Time will tell how Tucker and the rest of the additions fit with the Sixers, but Tyrese Maxey believes they will help Philadelphia fill holes on its championship quest.
