2. Delon Wright - Washington Wizards

The Sixers have a clear problem at backup point guard, with the largely-ineffective Patrick Beverley manning the position.

He averages less than five points per game this year with below-average shooting numbers, so it's clear the Sixers need an upgrade here. Enter Delon Wright.

While currently injured, Wright has a long history of dependable guard play and wouldn't be difficult to poach from the hapless Washington Wizards. The 11th-year veteran shoots over 45% for his career with less than a turnover per game, showcasing reliability and defensive versatility that would boost the Sixers' rotation.

Given Washington's 3-20 record, it likely wouldn't take much to get Wright in Philadelphia. He would be an immediate upgrade over Beverley and could serve as a starting guard should anyone sustain an injury over the course of the year.

Maxey is a score-first point guard, so a player of Wright's skill set would complement the current roster well. Even if Wright isn't the top choice, the Sixers' front office should seek out an upgrade at guard over Beverley.
