The Philadelphia 76ers haven't been able to shoot the ball well all season. Luckily for fans though, the "Process" mantra is long behind their front office, and they're in the market for perimeter-shooting free agents that will help the team win - and win now.

Jeff Green is one of the names that has been listed as a potential target for general manager Elton Brand. Detroit swingmen Langston Galloway and Luke Kennard are also on the team's radar as the NBA trade deadline approaches in early February.

Green has hopped around several teams in the past few years including the Cavs and Wizards. He most recently fell victim to Utah's recent acquisition of guard Jordan Clarkson from Cleveland, and was subsequently waived by the team to free up roster room. Still an outside shooting threat, Green could be an ideal veteran piece to plug into Philly's already-seasoned offensive machine. He was averaging just under eight points in around 18 minutes for the Jazz prior to his release.

Kennard and Galloway are responsible for nearly 26 points per game for Dwayne Casey in Detroit. Kennard has turned himself into a savvy 3-and-D player, giving the Pistons 15.8 points a night, while shooting 40% from deep in 25 starts this year. Galloway's production mostly comes from the bench, but he too has shown he needs little time to light it up from deep.

Other names the 76ers have expressed interest in include former Sixer Robert Covington, Andre Iguodala, Glenn Robinson III and Malik Beasley.

It's clear the 76ers want to add another outside threat and they've expressed interest in a wide pool of players thus far.
