With the 2019-20 season on hold, let’s reevaluate the Philadelphia 76ers’ roster.
The Philadelphia 76ers are currently sixth in a top-heavy Eastern Conference playoff race — not where fans expected them to when the season began, and by all measures, one of the most disappointing campaigns in recent memory.
Many factors have contributed to the Sixers’ sour season. Injuries, poor management, poor coaching — fans have thrown a lot at the wall when it comes to criticism. Some think Brett Brown deserves to lose his job. Others would donate arm and leg to see Al Horford traded. A few are ready to forget the season altogether and skip ahead to 2020-21.
Before the season started, when optimism still prevailed among the Sixers fandom, we conducted a poll of sorts. We averaged rankings from nine individual contributors to form one, definitive ranking for every player on the Sixers roster. You can read the results from September here.
With the season on pause and its future in doubt, we decided to reconvene to fill the time. This time around, we have eight individual contributors, and our new ranking features a slew of major changes. As expectations have shifted, so have our writers’ perception of the roster.
Here is our updated Ranking the Sixers Project.
