At point guard, will be the reigning Rookie of the Year, Michael Carter-Williams. Obviously, he was one of the few bright spots for the Sixers last season and will again garner heavy minutes at the point guard position. In the offseason there were some trade rumors swirling around, but he’s still in Philadelphia. MCW is hoping to improve his outside shot and limit his turnovers this season. Most importantly, he doesn’t want to fall into the common sophomore slump routine. Yet again, MCW might be one of the few bright spots for the up and coming 76ers team.
