Despite a second-round loss to the fifth-seeded Atlanta Hawks, 76ers president of basketball operations Daryl Morey still believes in Philadelphia's core of Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, and Ben Simmons.

"I would say we have an extremely good trio," Morey told reporters Tuesday, according to The Athletic's Derek Bodner. "You don't get the (East's) 1-seed without having extremely strong top-end players. ... We're gonna figure out how to make the team better."

Morey added, "We're committed to this group. This is a really good group that played at a very high level. ... I mean, really, 25 or 26 (teams) in this league would love to be in our position. ... We've got a good foundation, we just have to do better."
