The Philadelphia 76ers season is just around the corner, so now seems like a good time to rank all the members of “The Process”.
The season is about to begin and the Philadelphia 76ers are one of the favorites to make it to the NBA finals. It’s hard to believe that just five years ago, the team was in full rebuild mode, yet they have come full circle into title contention now.
The rebuild wasn’t easy and was deemed “The Process”. There were many players in this “Process”, 58 to be exact. With only two still on the current roster and the team ready to compete for a championship, it seems like a good time to rank each member of “The Process”.
Earlier in the 2019 calendar year, The Sixer Sense’s writers came together and did an All-Time Process roster. In that article, we collaborated together and came up with an ideal 17-man roster of “Process” members.
This article ranks all of “The Process” players included during former general manager (GM) Sam Hinkie’s tenure. This list was made by the same rules used in constructing the All-Time Process roster.
"“Players were eligible for this roster if they were eithe, drafted by, traded for (including future draft picks) or signed by Hinkie and had to play at least one game with the Sixers.”"
If Hinkie acquire a pick and then another executive that came after him traded that pick, then that player wasn’t included on these rankings (sorry Markelle Fultz and Zhaire Smith). It should also be noted that there were three ties that accord when this list was being formulated. With rules for which players on this list identified, let the rankings begin.
