The Sixers haven’t had this good of an off-season in years.
And this off-season is only a couple of weeks old.
Which tells you a lot about the others!
James Harden hasn’t signed yet, but he must have agreed to give up enough annual salary for the Sixers to afford P.J. Tucker, whom they signed for just over $33 million over three years.
That’s a big score.
Tucker will seriously lift Philly’s defense and slot perfectly as a corner shooter for Tyrese Maxey and Harden drive-and-kicks.
Throw in De’Anthony Melton, whom the Sixers landed on draft night from Memphis for the No. 23 pick and Danny Green, and this may be the best off-season July 2011, when Comcast sold the team to Josh Harris and friends..
