NOTES
9/30/16: Jackson is missing from NBA 2K17 because the Celtics have 16 guaranteed contracts and the team roster space allows for 15.  I'll never understand why they don't just move the extra player to the free agent pool, rather than keep him hidden until the roster spot opens up a full month from now.  Jackson will make the team - it's Young and Hunter who are on the roster bubble.

VITALS
Injury: Torn Left Hamstring (from Healthy)
Duration: 200 Days (from N/A)

NOTES
9/29/16: Middleton's injury is nothing short of devastating to the Bucks.  He was the glue that held the team's roster composition together.  A natural SF, Middleton was able to play out of position at SG thanks to his defensive prowess and shooting ability.   He was also logged nearly all the SF that didn't go to Antetokounmpo.  The Bucks now have major shoes to fill, with only unproven players waiting in the wings.

NOTES

NOTES
9/29/16: Entering his contract season, the former Rookie of the Year could find himself out of the rotation if he doesn't show improvement.  A few years back coach Jason Kidd was able to salvage Shaun Livingston's career by starting him at SG.  The opportunity is there for MCW to make a similar impact

Mirza Teletovic
76 Overall
Position: PF
2nd Pos: N/A
Archetype: Faceup Four

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

John Henson
76 Overall
Position: C
2nd Pos: PF (from N/A)
Archetype: Interior Defender

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Matthew Dellavedova
75 Overall
Position: PG
2nd Pos: SG
Archetype: Two-Way Star

NOTES
9/29/16: Dellavedova has already won the starting PG job over Michael Carter-Williams.  He should be a better compliment to the Greek Freak, who operates in a point-forward role.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Michael Beasley
75 Overall (NC)
Position: SF (from PF)
2nd Pos: PF (from SF)
Archetype: Elite Inside Scorer (from Offensive-Minded Four)

NOTES
9/29/16: Beasley was acquired via trade after Middleton's injury news broke.  Joining the Rockets towards the end of last season (after dominating the Chinese league), he established himself as a quality bench scorer (22.5 PER, 56 TS% on 30 USG%).  While Beasley operates best as a small-ball four, he will likely be asked to play more SF this season to help fill the absence of Khris Middleton.  This is primarily because the team is loaded at PF with Jabari Parker and Mirza Teletovic, and he should be able to step in if Parker ever has to miss any time.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Miles Plumlee
73 Overall
Position: C
2nd Pos: N/A
Archetype: Interior Defender

NOTES
9/29/16: Plumlee is the consummate role player which actually gives him the edge over Greg Monroe for the starting job.  Defense and rebounding come at a premium when a team already has a multitude of offensive options in the front-court.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Steve Novak
72 Overall
Position: PF
2nd Pos: N/A (from SF)
Archetype: Faceup Four

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Jason Terry
71 Overall
Position: PG
2nd Pos: SG
Archetype: Offensive-Minded Point

NOTES
9/29/16: At 39-years old, Terry isn't capable of starting at SG anymore over an extended period, but he could very easily force the Bucks to play Dellavedova and MCW there if the Bucks younger, natural SGs don't play well.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thon Maker
71 Overall
Position: C
2nd Pos: PF
Archetype: Faceup Center

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Malcolm Brogdon
70 Overall
Position: SG
2nd Pos: N/A
Archetype: Sharpshooter

NOTES
9/29/16: Despite his rookie status, Brogdon is actually three years older than Rashad Vaughn;  it would not be surprising to see him take Vaughn's minutes and role if the latter continues to struggle.  He has great sleeper potential and could make an All-Rookie team if he gets the requisite minutes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rashad Vaughn
69 Overall
Position: SG
2nd Pos: SF
Archetype: Athletic Shooting Guard

CONTRACT
Option: Team (from 2Y Team)

NOTES
9/29/16: Despite an absolutely atrocious rookie season, Vaughn will start at SG with Khris Middleton sidelined by injury (pending any trades, of course).  The bright side is Vaughn can't be any worse than he was last season, when his 4.2 PER and 30 FG% (40 TS%) were by far the worst marks among NBA players with 1,000 minutes played. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Orlando Johnson
67 Overall
Position: SG
2nd Pos: N/A
Archetype: Skilled Shooter

NOTES
9/29/16: Despite the glaring need on the wing, Johnson won't make the team unless the team trades Monroe in the preseason.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

J.J. O'Brien
66 Overall
Position: SF
2nd Pos: N/A
Archetype: Athletic Small Forward

NOTES
9/29/16: Despite the glaring need on the wing, O'Brien won't make the team unless the team trades Monroe in the preseason.

NOTES
9/28/16: Simmons has drawn comparisons to LeBron James and will surely see his Overall rating climb throughout the year.  Simmons only has one badge (Chase Down Artist / Bronze) which is exceptionally low for a number one overall draft pick.  Beyond his ratings, those will be another area worth tracking.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nerlens Noel
77 Overall
Position: C
2nd Pos: PF
Archetype: Interior Defender

NOTES
9/28/16: While the Sixers would prefer to keep Nerlens Noel, his impending free agency will force them to act sooner rather than later.  The Sixers can't reasonably pay Noel what he's worth while they still have two high-lottery centers under contract.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Joel Embiid
77 Overall
Position: C
2nd Pos: N/A
Archetype: Rebounding Specialist

CONTRACT
Option: None (from Team)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Robert Covington
76 Overall
Position: SF
2nd Pos: PF (from N/A)
Archetype: Shooter

NOTES
9/28/16: Covington played most of his minutes at PF in 2016 as a small-ball four.  He should fill a role similar to what will be asked of Dario Saric... which does not bode well for his minutes.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dario Saric
75 Overall
Position: PF
2nd Pos: N/A (from C)

NOTES
9/28/16: Given his talent, it would not be surprising to see Saric earn the starting PF job in Philadelphia.  The Sixers will likely want to surround Ben Simmons with the best shooters on the team, and the battle between Covington and Saric will likely come down to that.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTES

80 Potential (+5)

NOTES
9/28/16: Bayless really came into his own as a shooter last season (1.24 Spotup PPP, 95th Percentile).  If he keeps that number up, he's a perfect compliment to Ben Simmons.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sergio Rodriguez
74 Overall
Position: PG
2nd Pos: N/A
Archetype: Offensive Star

NOTES
9/28/16: Really came into his own in his fourth and final season in the NBA (shooting 48%, compared to 39% over his first three seasons).  Not a surprise that he found stardom overseas.  Based on what I've read, he should compare to Jose Calderon.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gerald Henderson
73 Overall (-1)
Position: SG (from SF)
2nd Pos: SF (from SG)
Archetype: Two-Way Guard (from Two-Way Wing)

NOTES
9/28/16: The Sixers needed a stabilizing veteran presence, but unlike Jerryd Bayless I don't think Henderson fits particularly well.  Spacing will be an issue anytime he shares the court with Ben Simmons, and I can see a world where the Sixers go bigger with Hollis Thompson starting at SG, or smaller with Jerryd Bayless starting next to Sergio Rodriguez (the latter would surely put butts in the seats).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

T.J. McConnell
73 Overall
Position: PG
2nd Pos: N/A
Archetype: Playmaker

NOTES
9/28/16: Should still carve a role out with Jerryd Bayless expected to play most of the reserve SG minutes, though it will be tougher with Sergio Rodriguez around.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hollis Thompson
72 Overall
Position: SF
2nd Pos: SG
Archetype: Two-Way Wing

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Richuan Holmes
70 Overall
Position: PF
2nd Pos: C (from N/A)
Archetype: Athletic Power Forward

NOTES
9/28/16: The only "traditional PF" on the Sixers roster.  Holmes actually saw most of his time at center last season, and can be considered the 3rd center when Philadelphia rests one of their "Big Three".

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nik Stauskas
69 Overall
Position: SG
2nd Pos: SF
Archetype: Perimeter Threat

NOTES
9/28/16: Stauskas' poor play last season likely has him on the roster bubble despite his guaranteed contract.  The Sixers will include him in any trade involving Jahlil Okafor or Nerlens Noel.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
69 Overall
Position: SG
2nd Pos: SF
Archetype: Athletic Shooting Guard

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Elton Brand
70 Overall
Position: C
2nd Pos: N/A
Archetype: Interior Defender

NOTES
9/28/16: Despite his non-guaranteed contract and age (37), Brand is expected to make the Sixers in order to mentor their trio of bigs.  That means without any trades, someone will have to be cut (the money is on Stauskas).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
