Despite that, the Sixers (9-63 through Friday) offered Smith, shooting guard Nik Stauskas, and a protected first-round pick to the Atlanta Hawks for point guard Dennis Schroder at the Feb. 18 trade deadline, according to sources. The uncertainty surrounding the re-signing of Smith this summer was a holdup for the Hawks, according to one source. Smith, whose stock has risen, is expected to have plenty of suitors when he becomes a free agent.

At least for the next 12 games or so, Smith should get the chance to do just that. And so while he lit up at the idea of what his basketball life might look like five years from now — no doubt, partly because of how glorious it feels to know he can have a basketball life in the NBA in five years — he’s not ready to make any predictions about it. “Oh man, that’s a good question,” Smith said. He considered it. “If you’d have asked me that my rookie year, I’d have wanted to be where I am now. I wouldn’t have known it would take that long. And I didn’t know the road was going to be traveled as much. Now? For me it’s just day-by-day, what’s the next step. How to get better, minute-by-minute, game-by-game, practice-by-practice.”

The 76ers were prepared to make major changes to their roster to get a coveted point guard at Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. The team offered packages that included shooting guard Nik Stauskas, point guard Ish Smith, a player with an expiring guaranteed contract and a 2016 first-round pick to the Atlanta Hawks for point guard Dennis Schroder, according to multiple league sources. Former Sixer JaKarr Sampson was said to be player with the expiring contract in the deal.
