3 things the Sixers still need entering this season: Veteran point guard
This offseason, the Philadelphia 76ers had signed point guard like Derrick Walton Jr., Justin Robinson, and Frank Mason. However, none of them have particularly impressive NBA resumes, nor are they still on the roster. All three are probably going to be on the Sixers’ G-League affiliate, the Delaware Blue Coats.
As I wrote in the past, the 76ers still need a point guard depth. The Sixers have the most unconventional point guard depth in the league and will probably have to have a backup point guard by committee.
They need a veteran point guard. Despite the flaws of Raul Neto last season, he was a solid playmaker with a steady hand to guide the offense. Having an older playmaker to help mento combo guards Curry and Shake Milton, as well as rookie Tyrese Maxey, would go a long way.
There are a couple of point guards still on the free agent market that could help the club. J.J. Barea, Emmanuel Mudiay, Shabazz Napier, Isaiah Thomas, Brandon Knight, and Jeremy Lin are a few veterans to keep an eye on. While most of the players listed are score-first point guards, they are still experienced enough to run an NBA offense and be a positive lockerroom guy.
