The definitive, inarguable, absolutely final ranking of every player on the Philadelphia 76ers roster.

Okay, fine. They’re not inarguable. But in order to factor in multiple perspectives, we solicited lists from nine writers here at TSS. The following is the average ranking for all 17 players currently on the Philadelphia 76ers‘ roster.

We have done this project before, most recently after the 2019 trade deadline. The criteria are simple: the best player goes No. 1, the worst player goes No. 17 — how each player is ranked, analyzed or graded is subjective, as is the case with most sports debates.

For a mosey down memory lane, here’s where things landed in February.

  1. Joel Embiid
  2. Ben Simmons
  3. Jimmy Butler
  4. Tobias Harris
  5. J.J. Redick
  6. Boban Marjanovic
  7. Mike Scott
  8. T.J. McConnell
  9. Jonah Bolden
  10. Jonathon Simmons
  11.  James Ennis III
  12. Furkan Korkmaz 
  13. Zhaire Smith
  14. Amir Johnson
  15. Shake Milton
  16. Justin Patton
  17. Haywood Highsmith

Oh, how time flies. The Sixers, for the third time in a year, have undergone major roster reconstruction. Al Horford and Josh Richardson join the mix, while Brett Brown’s second unit may finally have enough talent to not fall apart incessantly whenever Embiid stops to breath.

The Sixers, in the wise words of Gerald Henderson, are on the come-up. There are real, legitimate championship aspirations in Philadelphia. Naturally, those expectations will breed pressure, which in turn raises the stakes.

As the 2019-20 season nears, here is our consensus ranking of all 17 players on the Sixers’ roster.
