3 76ers Who Won't Survive the Rest of the Season in Philadelphia

Despite the 76ers' impressive start to the 2023-24 NBA season, not everyone is guaranteed to survive the entire campaign.

3. KJ Martin Jr.

Chances are that if a player was a part of the Harden trade, they might not be around at the end of the 2023-24 campaign. KJ Martin Jr. is another ex-Clipper who could find his way out of Philadelphia sooner rather than later.

At first, you might be wondering why another team would want Martin. He hasn't been all that impressive during his Philly tenure, averaging just a point on 42.9% shooting while barely even playing five minutes per game.

However, that hasn't stopped teams from potentially being interested in his services. HoopsHype's Michael Scotto reported on Nov. 29 that there are teams out there that are "intrigued" by Martin after he averaged 12.7 points and 5.5 rebounds across 82 games with the Houston Rockets last year.

He's also only 22 years old, so it's entirely possible that a potential suitor might think his best days are yet to come.

The 76ers are fairly set at the wing position, so there isn't much of a spot for Martin, anyway. If Philadelphia can get anything back for his expiring contract this season, I'll be satisfied considering I don't see much of a path for him to receive real playing minutes barring any injuries.
