Keith Pompey of Philly.com wrote that there are some within the Sixers that don’t want to add unrestricted free agent Dion Waiters after a tumultuous season with then rookie Jahlil Okafor.
Really this isn’t about Okafor and it’s about Waiters’ history in the town of Philadelphia and it’s worth a read if you want to learn more. The Thunder really left Waiters hanging until the end by rescinding him when they did, even though he was more than free to get an offer early as a restricted free agent. Teams can be choosy now rather than spend big money on Waiters, so there might be a waiting game of sorts between the recently improved shooting guard and teams with the space and desire to sign him.
