Lately, the only constant with the Philadelphia 76ers has been change.
Shortly after coming a win away from an Eastern Conference Finals appearance, the deck was shuffled. With the hopes of dealing a winning hand by infusing new blood into a roster which seemingly reached its peak, the season transformed into an ugly 52-card pickup, immersed with injuries, underachieving acquisitions and back-of-the-bench fillers.
The result? A huge step backward and another offseason of likely transience and transformation.
Although this time around should present a bit more stability, with eight men on the roster already signed and set to return (as opposed to just five who came back last year), that still leaves seven spots open, and seven initial decisions to make on forthcoming free agents.
Six of them are featured here. The seventh—and newest—Justin Holiday, has barely scuffed his sneakers thus far and, therefore, Jrue's brother will be spared a ruling at this time.
But for the others? Their future fate in Philly—and approximately $29 million worth of cap space—is officially on the line.
So...should they stay or should they go?
