The Philadelphia 76ers are another team that isn’t hiding their intention to make a run at Andrew Wiggins, the prize in the next draft. They’re rebuilding yet again and won’t mind losing a ton of games in 2014.
New coach Brett Brown will have his hands full keeping his young team out of the cellar. It’ll certainly be a shock going from as assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs to the head coach of a team that promises to be terrible.
Most fans of the Sixers will focus on one thing above all: the return and development of Nerlens Noel. He could be a franchise type player — or he could be a bust due to injury and his slim body.
If Noel has a strong season and young players like Evan Turner and Thaddeus Young show signs of becoming stars, this could still be a successful season — despite the forthcoming losses.
Final Prediction: 25-57 record, 15th in the Eastern Conference
