The majority of rotation players for the 76ers will be entering free agency come the offseason.

NBA

The Philadelphia 76ers saw their season come to an end in heartbreaking fashion as Kawhi Leonard’s buzzer-beater gave the Toronto Raptors a 92-90 victory in a do-or-die Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Sunday.

It will be a very interesting offseason for Philadelphia as they likely will see three of their starters enter the free agent market, including Tobias Harris whom the team acquired in February. HoopsHype takes an in-depth look at what awaits them in the offseason.

Here are the notable upcoming free agents for the 76ers (listed in alphabetical order by last name). Their free agents list was taken from Spotrac. Ages listed are how old they will be once the new regular season begins.

1

Jimmy Butler (SF) - Player option for $18,467,976, Age: 30

It's safe to say that Butler will decline his option to become an unrestricted free agent. Acquired in mid-November of last year via trade by the 76ers, he went on to post averages of 18.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 1.8 steals in 55 regular season contests for Philadelphia. He saw increases in some of his numbers (averaged 19.4 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 5.2 assists) in their 12 playoff games.

2

James Ennis III (SF) - Player option for $1,733,358, Age: 29

Acquired from the Rockets via trade in early February, Ennis III became one of the key cogs off Philadelphia's bench. With the 76ers, he averaged 5.3 points and 3.6 rebounds in 18 regular season contests (improved to 7.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in 11 playoff games).
