At 16-12 through 27 games, the Philadelphia 76ers do not resemble a title contender.
Their stars have missed time and the offense has not yet found its footing.
Daryl Morey and the 76ers’ front office have some work to do by the trade deadline.
While this roster was greatly improved, the slow start to the season proves there is more to be done.
Here are two moves the 76ers should consider making at this year’s trade deadline.
1. Add A 3-And-D Wing
They have top-end talent and depth at the guard, forward, and center positions.
But the fact of the matter is a modern-day NBA team can never have too many wings.
The 76ers wing rotation was bolstered this offseason with the additions of P.J. Tucker and Danuel House Jr.

His veteran presence, three-point shooting, and perimeter defense would fit perfectly alongside the 76ers’ stars.
2. 76ers Should Find A New Coach
This one is not related to roster building, but rather who leads the roster.
Doc Rivers is one of the best regular season coaches to ever coach in the NBA.
But for whatever reason, he seems to be limiting the 76ers.
The team this year is loaded with high-end talent and back-end depth.
But Philly is still having many of the same issues they have in years past.
Rivers was brought on to help the 76ers reach a new level.
They seem no closer to a title than when Brett Brown was coach.
