WELCOME TO SIXERS, JARED MCCAIN: NOW, GO BE JALEN BRUNSON!

By Tommy Matthews

Almost the entire Sixers team — Kelly Oubre Jr., Kyle Lowry and Nic Batum — ended the season with an expired contract.

Team president Daryl Morey has about $65 million in salary cap space, a max contract topping $200 million to offer Tyrese Maxey and plenty of questions to solve on how to finally, truly build an NBA championship contender around Embiid.

So, drafting Jared McCain, a one-and-doner who became Duke’s toughest competitor is a good first step.

He Mmade 41% of 3s and 89% of free throws and had two 30-point games in the NCAA Tournament to lead Duke to the Elite Eight.

Player comparison:

Knicks G Jalen Brunson.

McCain is roughly the same size and the Knicks All-Star and enters the league about two years younger than the former Villanova star when he was drafted.
