It’s becoming readily apparent that the Philadelphia 76ers are looking to upgrade their roster ahead of next month’s NBA trade deadline.

According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, that includes targeting Detroit Pistons players Langston Galloway and Luke Kennard.

Sixers head coach Brett Brown has talked about the need for his team to find the outside shot after a ho-hum 25-14 start to the season.

Both players would provide that.

Kennard is shooting 40% from three-point range while averaging a career high 15.8 points to go with 3.5 rebounds and 4.1 assists.

Galloway, 28, is also shooting 40% from distance while averaging nearly 11 points per game.

As it relates to the Pistons, they are without Blake Griffin and could be sellers ahead of the deadline. That includes All-Star big man Andre Drummond. This is certainly something to keep an eye on.
