The minute it was reported that Wes Matthews was heading to the tanking New York Knicks as part of the Kristaps Porzingis trade, his name was thrown out as a buyout market target for the Philadelphia 76ers. According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Sixers are among a few contenders hoping Matthews makes it to the buyout market:

Stein notes that the Knicks would prefer to trade Matthews rather than buy him out. So if the Sixers really want Matthews, hopefully for their sake, all other interested parties agree to hold off on pursuing Matthews until the buyout market. Matthews is worth a shot for depth purposes, though he is a shell of his former shelf, but surrendering assets for his services would not be prudent.
