The Philadelphia 76ers are looking to make a strong push into to the playoffs. But to do so, they may have to let go of veteran Jerryd Bayless.

It has been reordered that Esran Ilyasova is on the verge of finalizing a buyout with the Atlanta Hawks, and that the 76ers are likely to sign him once that happens. In order to bring Ilyasova on, the team will have to let go one of its players.

There is a strong case that the player to get the axe will be Bayless, per Derek Bodner of The Athletic Philadelphia.
