SG, Nik Stauskas

This one isn’t the lock that people may think it is, but it just makes too much sense to not start Sauce. I mean when you really look at the Sixers roster, there really isn’t that much in the way at shooting guard. You have JaKarr Sampson whose shot is still a mix bag of meh. And then you have Hollis Thompson who doesn’t really bring much more to the table than Stauskas.

Stauskas certainly isn’t the entrenched starter, but unless he really stinks it up in training camp, he’s the probable starter at shooting guard.
