1. Ben Simmons
    The Sixers have been trying to find their identity since Sam Hinkie was fired. While they were able to land Jimmy Butler, they still need to figure out what kind of team they want to build around him. One thing we know about the Sixers is that they love having big men who can shoot threes. That’s where Ben Simmons comes in. He’s going to be the focal point of the offense. He’ll run the pick-and-roll with Joel Embiid and he’ll play off the ball at times. His passing skills make him a great fit for the position. If he continues to develop his three-point shot, he could become a star.
  2. Robert Covington
    Covington isn’t going to get many minutes unless he starts shooting the ball well. He’s shown flashes of being a good defender, but he’s not much of a rebounder. He’s only 6’8″, but he’ll try to guard bigger players. He’ll also be a threat to score if he gets hot from deep. He should start alongside Simmons and Embiid.
  3. Jahlil Okafor
    Okafor is a raw prospect who hasn’t played much basketball yet. He’s got a lot of potential though. He’s already a solid athlete and he’s got a nice frame. He’s also skilled offensively. He can pass the ball and finish above the rim. He’s a project, but he could be a steal if he develops properly. He’ll likely spend time backing up Embiid and Simmons.
  4. Dario Saric
    Saric is a versatile forward who can do a little bit of everything. He’s athletic enough to defend multiple positions and he’s a decent shooter. He’s not a great passer, but he can create shots for himself and others. He’s probably best suited as a stretch four, but he’d be a good fit anywhere on the floor.
  5. Nerlens Noel
    Noel is a talented center who just doesn’t seem to have any confidence. He’s never been a consistent player and he’s had trouble staying healthy. He’s still young though and he’s got plenty of room to improve. He’s long and athletic, but he’ve struggled with consistency. He’s definitely worth keeping an eye on.
  6. Richaun Holmes
    Holmes is a small forward who can play both inside and outside. He’s quick and agile and he’s always looking to attack the basket. He’s inconsistent, but he’s a high upside guy. He is not a great shooter, but he will take some open looks. He is a good rebounder and he is tough to stop once he gets rolling.
  7. Amir Johnson
    Johnson is a power forward who can play either end of the court. He’s strong and physical and he is a good rebounder. He is a streaky shooter, but has improved over the years. He is a smart player who knows how to use his size effectively.
