No word on Ish Smith, yet. Right now, they have four PG signed in Tony Wroten, Isaiah Canaan, Scottie Wilbekin and Pierre Jackson. That could be a crowded position. Considering the Sixers only carry three in the regular season.
I don't think he will start especially when Wroten returns. Folks have to remember that Jackson missed a year with a injury before playing in summer league. So it will take him a little while to get the rust off.
If they decide to keep Wallace, I don't think he would be the final roster spot. Of the other three, I will have to say JordyMac.
I wouldn't say that you are being played. They said months ago that they would start building it in 2016. So we do have a couple of months.
I just think that Sam Hinkie wish that he wouldn't have put a timeline on it when he did. He has not had the surgery yet, but will.
I don't think it will stand pat, just because the Sixers always make moves right before training camp and before the start of the season.
Yeah, I do think the Sixers could afford to be more transparent with the fans, especially in regards to this surgery. Embiid has not had it yet. I was told that they have some time - not a lot of time - but some time, considering that he'll miss the upcoming season.
I do think they will try to bring in a new point guard. However, let's face it: The Sixers aren't trying to win right now. So they still in the stage on evaluating talent. As a result, they are going to give Tony Wroten every opportunity to prove that he can stick during what is final year of his contract.
Yes, he would make things very interesting. The Sixers also have the money available that he would want. However, I don't know how he would like it here on a rebuilding team. I also think they want to see a lot of Wroten this season. However, he would be a great addition and a good point guard of the future.
I don't think you are delusional. He has a great skillset and the things that he needs to work on are simple adjustments. It will be hard to do that, but I'm not going to rule it out. In regards to Embiid, there is a great chance that it is over. No one really knows.
NOOOOOOOO! LOL. ... Seriously, no. Sixers fans will be lucky to see in October, 2016
Yes, at the trade deadline. He's coming off a basically two injuries and won't be ready at the start of the season. However, a playoff team would want him once he's healthy and contributing to the Sixers. So I can see him being moved for the right price in February.
Show improvement in player's individual games and in the win-loss record.
Once they sign T.J. McConnell, they will have five. They also want Jordan McRae to play some point guard. So that's six.
I think they will go after some people. But I do believe that they want to give Tony Wroten every opportunity and I know that Sam Hinkie really likes Isaiah Canaan and Pierre Jackson. So I expect those three to get the chunk of the minutes this season.
That's a good question. One that I really don't know the answer to. However, I think he believes they will all have faith in him once the rebuilding process is complete.
It's hard to say, because the Sixers have shown that they will trade a core player away in a heartbeat. I don't think any of us really knows the answer. In regards to Embiid, it will be a wait-and-see if he can actually play before considering him a core player down the road
I wouldn't do it just for that. Think about it. If they were hot items, they would have already signed with teams.
I think they can win 20, but it will be hard. I honestly think the first team of the rebuild was the most talented in regards to playing experience. People forget that they started four veterans along with MCW two seasons ago, and that team only won 19 games. This team might win 20, but it will be hard.
Jahlil Okafor because the offense will run through him. After that, I will have to say Tony Wroten.

I'm not sure how much interest they have in him. I don't think he would a great fit for the young guys in the locker room in their eyes.
