Well, it turns out that the 76ers had a plan to address the issue last week before the Cleveland Cavalier threw a wrench into it. According to Rich Bucher via Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors when the Washington Wizards released Shaun Livingston, the Sixers planned to claim the point guard. Unfortunately the Cavaliers claimed Livingston leaving the 76ers empty handed.
Adams points out that the Sixers are still in the market for some depth.
“While they didn't land Livingston, the Sixers are looking for point guard depth, according to Bucher. Jrue Holiday is having a career year in the starting role, but neither Royal Ivey or Maalik Wayns has been particularly productive off the bench. The Sixers have an open roster spot, and could create another one if they decide not to guarantee Wayns' contract by January 10th, so there's room to make a move.”
