There’s no question from anyone, the Philadelphia 76ers didn’t win much last year. In fact, they only won 18 times, their worst season since 1996. To put that into perspective, I wasn’t even alive when that season happened. So, yeah, monumental years for the team have come and gone, and we’re hoping to see the team pick things up, and definitely crossing our fingers hoping there’s at least a few more than 18 wins next year. We’re certainly praying there isn’t less.

When we look at the roster, though, it’s pretty easy to see that they’ve got pieces that can help them reach that goal of more wins. Although it doesn’t sport any truly household name veterans, they have lots of young players who are just looking for an opportunity to show the league what they’re worth. What better place than a rebuilding team?

Sure, youth doesn’t always win games, but the thing about that is that youth only lasts so long. These guys will mature, and have already learned a lot from last year if they were with the team.

Of this youthful roster, who are the players who will be the ones forcing an impact and pushing the 76ers to more wins this year? Let’s take a look, in no particular order, at four players who are sure to have an impact on the games won (and lost if they are unable to produce).
