Despite possessing an improving Joel Embiid and excellent supporting talent over the last few years, the Philadelphia 76ers have continually disappointed their fans in the playoffs.

They just lost in the first round to the New York Knicks, who are without three-time All-Star power forward Julius Randle, and they haven’t reached the Eastern Conference Finals since 2001.

Sixers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey said this will a big offseason for his team, and his statement could foreshadow significant changes, per Sam DiGiovanni.

Daryl Morey says it’ll be a big offseason for the Sixers, who have “two great studs” to build around in Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey and one of the NBA’s best coaches in Nick Nurse.

As Morey put it, Philly has two “giant studs” in Embiid, who was last season’s MVP and could’ve won the award again this year had he not gotten injured, and guard Tyrese Maxey, who averaged 25.9 points and 6.2 assists a game.

Embiid suffered a meniscus injury at midseason, and it may have been the biggest factor in their ultimate playoff failure.

Forward Tobias Harris, who has been their third-best offensive player for the last few years, will be a free agent this summer, and the big rumor is that they’re looking to replace him with Paul George.

George is currently a member of the Los Angeles Clippers, and he can turn down the player option on his contract to become a free agent this summer.

The Sixers also have a decision to make on sharpshooter Buddy Hield, who they acquired via trade at midseason and is about to become a free agent.

While he shot 46.2 percent from 3-point range against the Knicks in the playoffs, he averaged just 5.5 points in 12.8 minutes a game.
