Trading up with Boston to get Markelle Fultz at No. 1 in the draft brings even more excitement to a Sixers franchise on a real upswing.
A roster with Fultz, Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Dario Saric, J. J. Redick (above) and Amir Johnson looks like a legit playoff team in the East.
Here’s where CBSSportsline sees the Sixers:
By signing Redick and Johnson to one-year deals, the Sixers seriously, adding two veterans to mentor this young roster while continuing to keep their already flexible salary cap situation wide open.
Philly is quickly becoming a place where legit free agents might well want to play.
