With James Harden’s trade request still pending, the Sixers’ roster could look quite different in a month than it does now.
On the other hand, there’s no indication that the Harden trade talks have been all that active lately, so perhaps he’ll remain in Philadelphia for the foreseeable future.
If the roster doesn’t undergo additional changes, the 76ers will have to decide who the odd man out on the 15-man roster is.
The team is signing Kelly Oubre to join a group of 13 players on guaranteed contracts, plus Filip Petrusev and Danny Green.
There would be room for both Petrusev and Green if Philadelphia decides to trade or release one of the players who has a guaranteed deal — Montrzl Harrell, who is expected to be out all season with an ACL tear, would be a prime candidate.
Here are Sixers who are on guaranteed standard contracts: 13
Players on non-guaranteed standard contracts: 2
Players on Exhibit 10 contracts: 2
Players on two-way contracts: 3
Players who have reportedly reached contract agreements: 2
