In the end, there can only be one NBA champion. The Philadelphia 76ers now join our Chicago Bulls and the rest of the eliminated teams watching the rest of the postseason from home, but they had a decent run just before missing out on the Eastern Conference Finals.

Going into their own offseason, the questions will abound for the Sixers. This was supposed to be a super team that could contend for a title. Instead, Philadelphia’s roster that consists of three players getting paid $29 million or more annually is headed for an early exit once more.

Do the Sixers break up the trio of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Tobias Harris?

If they do, which player or players get dealt? And for what price? Do the Sixers attempt to re-tool around a couple of key players? They still seem so close, yet haven’t been able to connect the dots. This summer, they’ll have some key decisions to make on a few players and if the Bulls wanted to, they could get in on attempting to bring some of them to Chicago.

Should the Chicago Bulls go after any 76ers players this offseason?

Chicago has a solid young core featuring the likes of Zach LaVine, Nikola Vucevic and Patrick Williams. Their big question, this summer, is what to do with restricted free agent Lauri Markkanen.

Should the Bulls want to allow Markkanen to leave, they could opt to replace him with one of several options. Along with replacing Markkanen, the Bulls will have to fill in a few spots on their roster.

Do any of the following Sixers make sense for Arturas Karnisovas and company?
