Rumors : Sixers eyeing George, Butler, Ingram in offseason

Published May 3, 2024 at 7:32 PM

The dust has barely settled on yet another playoff flop, and already the Philly rumor mill is cranking into high gear. The 76ers, it seems, are not about to sit quietly this offseason. According to ESPN's Brian Windhorst on Friday's episode of Get Up, the Sixers are eyeing some big names, with Paul George topping the list as he heads into free agency. Jimmy Butler and Brandon Ingram are also in the mix as potential trade targets.

The buzz about George joining the Sixers isn't exactly flying under the radar—Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer calls it «the NBA's worst-kept secret.» There's chatter in league circles that a deal is more a question of 'when' rather than 'if.'

While George contemplates his future, which remains up in the air after the Clippers hesitated to offer him a max contract, his current team is still battling it out in the playoffs. They're down 3-2 against the Mavericks, and all eyes are on whether they can pull through.

Meanwhile, the clock is ticking on Butler, who's nearing the end of his hefty contract, and Ingram, who's had his fair share of injury woes. Both could be game-changers for a Sixers team desperately needing to shake things up after a disappointing first-round exit to the Knicks. With potentially $65 million in cap space and a Tyrese Maxey extension on the horizon, Philly's gearing up for a major roster revamp. Let's just say, this offseason in the City of Brotherly Love is shaping up to be anything but quiet.
