NOTES
10/1/16: Simmons fractured his foot and will be out for three months (if not the season, based on Philly's approach to injuries)... just another tough blow for a franchise that seems to only catch the wrong kind of "breaks".
9/28/16: Simmons has drawn comparisons to LeBron James (though I liken him more to Blake Griffin) 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.

CONTRACT
Option: None (from Team)

NOTES
11/7/16: Embiid is 6-9 from 3PT which is quite the surprise. Playing further from the basket has reduced his offensive rebound output, but his DRB and BLK rates appear to have translated.
10/2/16: Embiid will start his first preseason game today... he would have easily been the #1 pick over Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker if not for his foot injury.  Hopefully Embiid can stay healthy and become the franchise cornerstone he was expected to be, and not go the route of Greg Oden.

85 Intangibles (+1)
80 Potential (+6)

NOTES
10/1/16: With Ben Simmons out for an extended period, the Sixers will likely need Rodriguez's playmaking ability in the starting lineup.
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.

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

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.

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

Nerlens Noel

85 Intangibles
85 Potential (+5)

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.

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

Jerryd Bayless
75 Overall (+1)

Archetype: Offensive Minded-Point

70 Intangibles (-1)
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.

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

Ersan Ilyasova
75 Overall
Position: PF
2nd Pos: C (from N/A)
Archetype: Two-Way Power Forward

85 Potential (+1)

CONTRACT
Option: Team (from 2Y Team)

NOTES
9/28/16: The Sixers have a major glut at center that will need to be addressed.  The Sixers would surely prefer to trade Okafor, but Nerlens Noel has more value around the league.

INTANGIBLES
55 Pass Perception (+5)
45 Defensive Consistency
55 Pick & Roll Defense (-2)
65 Help Defense
60 Offensive Consistency
85 Intangibles
80 Potential

NOTES
10/1/16: Saric will step into the starting PF role with Ben Simmons sidelined for an extended period.  This immediately thrusts him into contention for the NBA's Rookie of the Year award (and I think he is the overwhelming favorite now).
9/28/16: Given his talent, it would not be surprising to see Saric earn a starting 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.

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

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

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
69 Overall (-1)
Position: C (from PF)
2nd Pos: PF (from N/A)
Archetype: Athletic Center (from 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: SF (from SG)
2nd Pos: SG (from SF)
Archetype: Athletic Small Forward (from Athletic Shooting Guard)
