Option Watch: Justin Anderson’s 4th Year Option Picked Up

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Media Day Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Before today’s deadline to pick up team options for next season, the Sixers picked up Justin Anderson’s this morning while my phone was a lifeless heap of useless technology:

As a reminder, here’s what Sean said about picking up Anderson’s option earlier this week:

Same song, different verse with Anderson compared to Luwawu-Cabarrot. Simba is a year-plus older than TLC and hasn’t had any success with his shooting, 2017-18 small sample excluded. His option will guarantee him about $2.5 million if picked up.

Giving up on Anderson so soon after acquiring him, along with a fake first round pick which predictably became a second round pick which we sold for cash, would be a non-starter in the optics division.

The others are all fairly obvious pickups (Timothe Luawau-Cabarrot, Dario Saric, Ben Simmons) and one enormous, Comcast Center-sized question mark (Jahlil Okafor). We’ll bring you updates when that other decision is made.
