#1 Tony Wroten

The one they call “T-Wro” enters his third season with the Sixers as the most experienced player in the backcourt. Call him a tweener if you want, but if he’s healthy, Wroten will have the first shot to run this offense purely based on his knowledge of the system, and ability to score on a team that struggles to put the orange in the basket.

His questionable 1.38 assist to turnover ratio surely needs to improve for Brett Brown to trust him dominating the ball, but it’s hard to argue not starting the teams leading scorer for the first 30 games last year. Tony did tear his ACL last winter so questions of his availability from day one will be in place. Keep that in mind for their first game on October 28th.

The play of Nik Stauskas also has a huge impact for T-Wro’s future in the offense as well. If Stauskas is playing well, and receiving solid starter minutes at shooting guard, the thought to try Tony at the two won’t be as tempting. When it’s all said and done, I think Tony Wroten can be the best 6th man in the league, but based on the current talent around him he needs to be a starter on this roster.
