The Philadelphia 76ers are in the midst of trying to get themselves together after a slow start to the 2022-23 season after a summer full of moves pushing them toward the championship they so desperately crave.
However, they are also looking ahead to the next season and making sure they have their young players in place for a while.
The Sixers announced that they will pick up the team options for both young Tyrese Maxey and Jaden Springer. For Maxey, obviously, it will be for his fourth season, and for Springer, his third season. This keeps both players away from free agency and keeps them in tow for Philadelphia’s future.

The fact that the Sixers will have Maxey on the team option is a steal considering his production out on the floor. Springer is a young player who the team still believes in despite not getting much time out on the floor.
