Sixers 2 Summer Leagues
So, after having watched every Sixers S.L. game so far from both Orlando and LV, I think the following players are keepers into the Pre-season and upcoming regular season. Any other Sixers SL tryouts not on this list can't play for squat to even make the D-League. Just wanna get a sense of what fellow Sixers fans think:
Ron Roberts Jr.
Sean Kilpatrick, and
Travis Bader (MAYBE)
If I miss anyone else who you think should get a Sixers contract, then please feel free to include him here.
How has Jakarr Sampson looked. He is Arkon SVSM kid and I bet if he is cut he finds his way to the Cavs D League team.
He looked good for the rest of the Orlando Summer League. He's a hustler who plays better than any of the other scrubs on the LV squad (outside of Mcrae & Kilpatrick, that is). Sixers should've included him in Vegas as well. Surprised they didn't drag him and RRJr. along.
Jerami Grant has looked more raw than Bruno Caboclo...aside from his outstanding leaping ability, he is so unrefined and multiple years away from contributing, he really doesn't provide a whole lot...It'll be interesting to see what they do with him
Guards: MCW, Wroten, McRae
Forwards: Nerlens Noel, Thad Young, KJ McDaniels
anyone else is useless. I don't think Grant, Roberts, and Sampson will contribute meaningfully to the NBA squad.
Your starting 5: 1, MCW...2, Wroten...3, KJ McDaniels...4, Thad Young...5, Nerlens Noel.
Wroten, McRae, off the bench. MCW might be your best rebounder.
Right now the draft McD and trade for Gary Harris and Nurkic (a big body) is looking really nice.
I can't wait for next year though I am nervous about Embiid's immediate impact. At least he can rebound!
Sixers and Bucks battling for worst record in the NBA this year. Mudiay and Oubre here we come!
I'm not sold on Casper Ware as a set up guy. I don't think Bader and Kilpatrick get a look with McRae and McDaniels really playing the 2 IMO.
If you wanted a shooter who can also run point I'd sign Jimmer for peanuts
Roberts-Training camp invite. Could make roster
Sampson-Could be on roster bubble
Ware-Don't want him
Hollis-Will make team and may start
Grant-Likely to spend plenty of time in DLeague
McDaniels-Could compete to start this year but more because of state of roster than anything
McRae-Should make roster and contribute on 2nd unit
Kilpatrick-Deserves camp invite
After how well Casper Ware has performed this summer - he is bound to make the team
Dont forget they can also sign undrafted players from other SL sqauds. The competition will be fierce to get on this tanking 76ers team and establish an NBA role.
