2. Mohamed Bamba

The Sixers signed Bamba last offseason to a cheap one-year contract to see if he could provide some depth in the frontcourt and be a solid backup to Embiid. However, that never happened for the former first-round big man, who floundered on the bench for the Sixers.

The former Orlando Magic center averaged 4.4 points and 4.2 rebounds in 13 minutes per game this season (57 games). The 7-foot center didn’t see a single minute in the postseason against the Knicks, which would’ve been the perfect time to play him as the Sixers were getting hammered on the glass.

That said, the Sixers used Paul Reed as their backup five, which wasn’t a good idea as he had trouble against the Knicks' big men. 

You can’t fault the Sixers for trying to take a flier on the big man, as it seemed like Nurse could probably get something out of him, but it never came to fruition. Philadelphia would be better off addressing the backup center spot in free agency for a player like Andre Drummond.
