I have to agree with zambonir on Morey.
When he was hired, we were supposedly getting a savvy, experienced, well connected and dynamic GM that would finally build a great team around Embiid and get us past our 2nd round hurdle.
I feel he has underdelivered in almost every facet. The two best players are Embiid and Maxey, both of whom predated his arrival. Doc was not his direct hire, but they did come in the same year and Morey gave him 3 years before realizing what was suspected after year 1 and glaringly obvious after year 2.
Yes, he inherited the Simmons debacle and was able to get Harden in return by giving up draft power & another usable player in Curry. On the face of it, it looked defendable, but Harden was clearly not the same player and had proven multiple times that he was a team cancer. The only reason he was available from the Nets is because he refused to play until traded. Even Morey, who evidently is biased in favor of Harden, should have seen the signs.
Harden played ok for the 76ers, but it became mostly a lateral move from Simmons and left us with little depth. Morey helped that with Melton, but most of the team's improvement derived from Embiid and Maxey's development on the court. I think those players, Doc and the assistants probably deserve most of that credit.
Morey has not done anything about the bad fit of Harris nor resolved the backup C issue although we'll have to see what happens with Reed staying nor has he been able to get a true PG and stretch 3 to maximize this offense. Meanwhile, the defense which had kept the 76ers competitive during their rise has slid and, while still decent, it was exposed by several playoff opponents.
I'm not confident this season will be much different. Harden will be traded at some point for peanuts (his value has never been lower) and Embiid & Maxey will again be called on to carry the team. Harris will do his usual tease and fade routine and the bench guys will do their best, but unless Morey pulls off a miracle I see no progress.
