4 76ers Playing Their Final Season in Philadelphia

The Philadelphia 76ers have been one of the best teams throughout the 2023-24 NBA season. Regardless of how their campaign ends, though, don't expect to see these four players back in a Sixers jersey next season.

The 76ers looked to boost their rotation this season by signing Kelly Oubre Jr. to a one-year, minimum contract. Fast forward to the All-Star Break and the 28-year-old has proven himself to be one of the bigger steals of the year.

As of Feb. 14, Oubre is averaging 14.2 PTS/4.5 REB/1.1 AST while shooting 46.4% from the floor in 41 games (30 starts). He still hasn't been having much perimeter success (1.5 threes made, 32.6 3P%), but he's done just about everything else right to help the Sixers remain competitive.

It's worth noting that he is scoring about six fewer points per 100 possessions (23.8) than he was last season (29.9).

With that being said, Oubre's solid performance will likely garner him a decent amount of attention this offseason. There's no chance that he's going to play on another minimum deal, so look for him to pit potential suitors against each other to walk out with the best possible contract.

The 76ers will have an estimated $71.8 million to spend this summer, per Spotrac, but it remains to be seen how much they'd be willing to pay Oubre. They could afford him in theory, but they likely want to get Maxey re-signed and potentially add a third star before addressing a player of Oubre's caliber.
