After signing backup center Kyle O'Quinn to a one-year deal, the Sixers reportedly have $7.7 million in cap space with 10 players on their roster. Philly could certainly still use some bench scoring and a backup point guard.

Here are a look at some available options. 

 

Relatively inexpensive, but not cheap

Danny Green - 31, 6'6", 40.4 3P% career, made $10 million last season

 

Green is in a category off his own, coming off a season where he shot 45.5-percent from three and won the NBA title. He's seeking a longer-term contract, as well. 

 

Less than Danny Green

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope - 25, 6'5", 34.5 3P% career, made $12 million last season

Quinn Cook - 26, 6'2", combo guard, 41.8 3P% career, made $1.9 million last season

T.J. McConnell - 27, 6'2", backup point guard, 33.5 3P% career, made $1.6 million last season

 

KCP would give you a three-and-D piece off of the bench. Cook is a restricted free-agent, but it seems very unlikely the Warriors will be able to bring him back at this point. And the Sixers could always bring back T.J., as well. 

 

 

Bang for your buck

Trey Burke - 26, 6'1" combo guard, 34.0 3P% career, made $1.75 million last season

Raymond Felton - 35, 6'1" backup point guard, 32.9 3P% career, made $2.4 million last season

 

These three guys will be even cheaper than the above tier. Burke may be the Sixers' second best option on this entire list after Curry, as he'll be able to provide all three of aforementioned things needed—shooting, iso scoring, and backup PG minutes—for a cheap price. Felton is a veteran who won't give you a ton, but is a solid backup.

 

The cheapest 

Nik Stauskas - 25, 6'6" wing, 35.3 3P% career, made $540,000 last season

Jamal Crawford - 39, 6'5" combo guard, 34.8 3P% career, made $2.4 million last season

Shelvin Mack - 29, 6'3" backup point guard, 33.0 3P% career, made $2.1 million last season

Emmanuel Mudiay - 23, 6'5" combo guard, 32.0 3P% career, made $4.3 million last season

 

Bring back Sauce! Why not, actually? He's really cheap and would give the Sixers a much needed sniper off of the bench for virtually free. Crawford, I just threw in here because he's a savvy veteran, can score in iso situations, can knock down three's, and can play some backup PG. He may just retire though. Mack is a cheap veteran backup point guard
