The 76ers are a no-brainer when it comes to this list. The team, according to Joel Embiid still has a shot to make the playoffs, while that may seem like a long shot the team still needs to make a move. But, who do they move and for what? Since the end of the 2015 season, there were rumors that the team was looking to ship either Nerlens Noel or Jahlil Okafor out-of-town for some backcourt help or draft picks. With Ben Simmons expected back in February, the 76ers will finally have a healthy roster. Despite what coach Brown believes, Simmons should stay at the SF position and let a trade for Okafor or Noel bring in a quality starting PG.
