76ers will extend Tyrese Maxey’s contract this summer

After falling to another disappointing second-round playoff exit, the Philadelphia 76ers could see major change on the horizon.

It began with guard James Harden opting into the final year of his deal only to later request a trade. As well as that, the 76ers have decided not to offer guard Tyrese Maxey an extension this summer.

The decision underlines Philadelphia’s desire to keep flexibility with the chance that the team could move him. He’s heading into the final year of his rookie contract and will become a restricted free agent next offseason.

The 76ers’ roster only features two guaranteed contracts with Joel Embiid and P.J. Tucker, giving the team the chance to have two max contract slots for the 2024-25 season. The organization doesn’t appear to be entirely sold that Maxey can be the second max deal player alongside Embiid.

The 22-year-old has developed into a highly productive player averaging 20.3 points and 3.5 assists on 48.1 percent shooting from the floor and 43.4 percent shooting from beyond the arc.

Maxey could become a prized asset for the 76ers to dangle around to build a stronger roster around Embiid. The team doesn’t have to move him during the offseason and could decide to move him before next season’s trade deadline or attempt a sign-and-trade in the summer of 2024.

Philadelphia is expected to garner a significant trade package for Harden when he’s traded from the likes of either the LA Clippers, Miami Heat, or New York Knicks.
