Several teams are rumored to have a shot at signing LeBron James this offseason, but the Philadelphia 76ers are definitely not one of them. The Sixers were awful last year, and capped off their 26-game losing streak by finishing the season with a 19-63 record.

The team has some young talent in Michael Carter-Williams and Joel Embiid, but I don’t think even the biggest Sixers homer would argue that the team will do much winning in the next year or so.
