The Philadelphia 76ers have been one of the most active teams in the league in the offseason.

They were quite close to championship contention last season, as Joel Embiid was playing like a legitimate MVP.

Nonetheless, his knee injury got in the way of their plans, which is why they went to great lengths to improve their roster ahead of the upcoming campaign.

Needless to say, getting Paul George was the biggest move of the offseason, but they still made it a point to add more floor-spacers next to Joel Embiid.

With that in mind, Eagles insider Eliot Shorr-Parks took to Twitter to show how much the Sixers have improved in terms of three-point shooting.

Sixers are absolutely stacked with shooters now:

Maxey, Paul George, Martin, Gordon, McCain

All capable of shooting 38%+ from three next season

Best shooting Embiid has ever had around him

He pointed out the fact that Tyrese Maxey, George, and the newcomers Caleb Martin, Eric Gordon, and Jared McCain are all capable of shooting 38%+ from beyond the arc next season.

Embiid isn’t the prototypical big man in the sense that he can also step out to the perimeter and knock down shots from downtown, which is one of the many reasons why he’s so difficult to defend.

Moreover, he’s also an outstanding passer for his position, and with him often drawing double or even triple-teams down low, his teammates should have plenty of wide-open looks from beyond the arc next season.

The Sixers haven’t gotten past the second round of the playoffs since Embiid entered the league, and there will be no more room or time for excuses anymore with the additions they made.
