Is Klay Thompson on the Philadelphia 76ers’ Radar for Free Agency?

Do you have a market for Klay Thompson? It looks like it is. After months in which it has been commented over and over again that the Orlando Magic could put a big contract on the table for him, now the Philadelphia 76ers are the team that has him among their targets; What’s more, they already know the type of contract they will put on the table.

According to Jake Fischer of Yahoo Sports, the Pennsylvania organization would intend to imitate what the Pacers did with Bruce Brown; that is, give him a great salary but under a 1+1 with a team option for the second year. The Sixers understand that this way they would not only get one of the best shooters in history, but they could also make use of his high salary if they wanted to undertake a transfer throughout the season.

While Thompson is an option for Philadelphia, he is far from the only one. The Sixers want to have experienced players on the wings. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope would be another name to take into account. The Denver Nuggets guard has a player option worth $15.4 million for the 2024-25 campaign, but everything indicates that he will reject it to sign a more lucrative deal.

The truth is that Philadelphia has an immense margin to do things in the summer. Not only does he have picks for future drafts, but only Joel Embiid’s contract appears on his salary sheet. With such space, there is already talk that Paul George is the team’s number one target heading into free agency.
