The Philadelphia 76ers motto for the past several years has been “Trust the Process”. Will all of this tanking and high draft picks finally pay off this season? It could pay off if everyone is healthy and not sitting on the sidelines.
This team has a lot of upside, but will injuries cause it to be an average team at best? Brett Brown has been a patient coach and he is actually well respected. It is time to see what he can do with a good roster. Philadelphia’s record was 28-54 last season. They can easily improve.
Projected Starting Lineup: (C) Joel Embiid (PF) Dario Saric (SF) Ben Simmons (SG) J.J. Reddick (PG) Markelle Fultz
Key players off the bench: (G/F) Justin Anderson, (G) Jerryd Bayless , (F) Robert Covington, (C) Jahlil Okafor, and (G) T.J. McConnell.
The Philadelphia 76ers play in a weak eastern conference. They will be a .500 team and be a 6, 7, or 8 seed in the east. Philadelphia has a bright future ahead of them.
