The Philadelphia 76ers are led by team president Daryl Morey has a history of making bold moves in order to put his team in a position to chase a title. In his short time in Philadelphia, he has already made some big moves to put better pieces around stars Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.

Morey is always a guy who is working the phones behind the scenes looking for the next move to give his team a better chance in the future. For the moment, Philadelphia could use another big man who can stretch the floor and provide good production off their bench.

According to Sam Amick of The Athletic, the Sixers have their eyes on Sacramento Kings forward Nemanja Bjelica who fits that exact bill.

Amick:

Nemanja Bjelica who has been out of Walton’s rotation since Jan. 9 and appears likely to be on the move. The Sixers, who have long been tied to Hield in terms of interest, are known to be among the teams who are considering the 32-year-old forward who has shot 39 percent from three-point range in his six seasons.

Bjelica, of course, was the one who verbally agreed to a deal with the Sixers in the offseason of 2018, but he then decided to join the Kings, instead as he flipped his decision. Bjelica is having a down season in Sacramento shooting just 23.8% from deep, but he has only played 10 games as Amick mentioned that he is out of Walton’s rotation. His career shows that he is a much better shooter and he would be a nice fit in Philadelphia.
