WIN-NOW SIXERS HAVE HAD AN OFFSEASON WORTHY OF AN A!

By Jerry Wein

Bleacher Report’s offseason grades for all 30 teams gave the Sixers an A so far:

Those inclined to hand-wring might feel uneasy about guaranteeing three years and $33 million for the 37-year-old PJ Tucker (above), but Danuel House’s comparatively modest two-year, $8.4 million agreement balances things out.

Plus, the Sixers are in full win-now mode with what’s left of James Harden and the uncertain remainder of Joel Embiid’s prime.

If Tucker plays a major role in a title run this season, Philly won’t care if he’s a negative asset at some point later in his new deal.

Plus, Tucker and trade acquisition DeAnthony Melton dramatically up the 76ers’ toughness level.

Both are rugged defenders who can also stretch the floor with their shooting, making them game-closing options against the toughest matchups.
