share to other networks share to twitter share to facebook

With young stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons at the helm, the 76ers were already one of the more fancied sides in the east. Now, having acquired Jimmy Butler, they have the potential to be significantly better. Check out their whole team below.

Ben Simmons, PG, 87

Age: 22  

Position: PG

Height: 6’10’’

Playstyle: Slasher

Best stats: 94 Driving Layup, 93 Stamina, 93 Defensive Awareness

Simmons first proper season as an NBA season saw him showcase all the traits that saw him such a highly rated prospect out of LSU. Despite not boasting any semblance of a jump shot, he put up 15.8 points per game to go along with 8.1 rebounds and 8.2 assists, and also grabbed 1.7 steals. With all the traits (aside from the shooting) of an elite point guard inside the body of an athletic forward, Simmons has the potential to be something special.

JJ Redick, SG, 83

Age: 34

Position: SG

Height: 6’4’’

Playstyle: Wing Shooter

Best stats: 93 Mid-Range Shot, 92 3-point Shot, 90 Free Throw

Redick’s first season with the 76ers saw him showcase the shooting talents that have made him one of the most dangerous perimeter threats in the game. He averaged a career-high 17.1 points per game, shooting 42% from beyond the arc, and also adding 3.0 assists per game.

Jimmy Butler, SF, 90

<em><img src="" class="fr-fic fr-dib"></em>

Age: 29 

Position: SF

Height: 6’8’’

Playstyle: Backcourt Defender

Best stats: 97 Draw Shooting Foul, 96 Stamina, 94 Driving Layup

After a tumultuous period with the Timberwolves, Butler finally got his way when he was traded east to the 76ers early in the 2018/19 season. Despite his troubles there, he still showed why he is one of the best players in the game, and last year put up 22.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 2.4 steals per game. With his elite two-way ability, he will make the 76ers a force to be reckoned with.

Wilson Chandler, PF, 76

Age: 31

Position: SF

Height: 6’10’’

Playstyle: Wing Scorer

Best stats: 92 Stamina, 82 On Ball Defense, 81 Vertical

Having played eight consecutive seasons with the Nuggets, Chandler moved to the 76ers for the 2018/19 season. In Denver, he had become an important player, and last season clocked 31.6 minutes per game for 10.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists. With Covington and Saric now in Minnesota, expect him to log plenty of starting minutes for Philly.

Joel Embiid, C, 92

Age: 24

Position: C

Height: 7’0’’

Playstyle: Post Anchor

Best stats: 97 Strength, 96 Post Moves, 95 Draw Shooting Foul

Perhaps Embiid’s biggest success out of last season was his ability to stay on the court, as no one has ever doubted what he is capable of when fit. He showed why in 2017/18, averaging the impressive numbers of 22.9 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 1.8 blocks per night. Having played less than 100 NBA games heading into this season, he still has plenty of room for improvement - a frightening thought for the rest of the league.
