The Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Detroit Pistons 113-93 at home last night. This marks a sixth straight win for Joel Embiid and the Sixers and they have worked their way back into the top five in the East. They are just a game behind fourth-place Brooklyn and two and a half games behind the third-place Cavaliers. With the success they’ve had, the Sixers have been linked to a “win-now” trading scenario that could bring a former NBA champion to the team.

Philly has the third-best defense in the league and fourth-best three-point percentage. A few weeks ago we wouldn’t have said those things about her. James Harden, Tyrese Maxey and Joel Embiid were all out once and the season looked bleak for the 76ers. With their recent success, the Sixers could be looking to add another key element to the playoff roster.

NBA betting sites have the 76ers at (+2000) to win the finals this season.

that’s six in a row.

Sixers linked to this former NBA champion in the “win-now” trade

According to Heavy Sports’ Sean Deveney, the player the Sixers are looking for is Bulls guard Alex Caruso.

“The guy to keep an eye on is (Alex) Caruso.” … “If [Chicago] can get some draft money back for Caruso, and maybe a player that would suit them. Teams like Phoenix or Miami both would be able to make such a trade. Even the Warriors could send a young guy like (James) Wiseman to get into win-now mode.” — Sean Deveney

He suggested the Sixers could trade some of their young plays like Matisse Thybulle and Shake Milton. Caruso goes perfectly with the 76s. He’s a valuable two-way player that compares relatively cheaply to other NBA players’ contracts. The 28-year-old has grossed over $9 million this season and is in the second year of a four-year, $36 million deal. He also has a fourth-year player option.
