Sixers NBA 2K23 ratings: Danuel House Jr.

  • Actual Rating: 72
  • Our Rating: 76

Not really sure what’s going on here. House experienced a revival in Utah last season and proved himself capable of playing important minutes in the playoffs. He’s an excellent perimeter defender who plays within himself on offense, often to great effect. House falls into the always valuable 3-and-D archetype every team values and he figures to get extended minutes off the bench in Philadelphia. He could even grab the fifth starting spot if things break in his favor.

Sixers NBA 2K23 ratings: Furkan Korkmaz

  • Actual Rating: 73
  • Our Rating: 72

Last season was a rough one for Furkan Korkmaz, who fell out of favor quickly due to poor shooting splits and his trademark turnstile defense. We have seen Korkmaz play critical, valuable minutes for the Sixers before. He’s capable of it, but his flaws are plentiful and he’s in danger of becoming an afterthought this season.

Sixers NBA 2K23 ratings: Shake Milton

  • Actual Rating: 73
  • Our Rating: 74

It can be difficult to gauge Shake’s value. He’s not really a point guard but he’s often way to passive when playing off the ball. On paper, he’s a natural wing who benefits from playing next to other guards. In the playoffs, and especially in Philadelphia’s Game 6 loss to Miami, he was one of the few players who brought a real spark to the second unit. It’s a matter of consistency for Shake. We have seen him be an elite shooter, and we’ve seen him be a dreadful shooter. We’ve seen him look like the Sixth Man of the Year, and we’ve seen him look unplayable. He just has to show up for work every night.

Sixers NBA 2K23 ratings: Paul Reed

  • Actual Rating: 73
  • Our Rating: 75

Paul Reed cemented himself as the backup center late last season. He still has a long way to go when it comes to decision-making on both sides of the ball, but even in his current state — raw, unpolished, overzealous — he consistently impacts winning. Reed is a uniquely disruptive defender who can switch onto the perimeter, muck up passing lanes, and block shots at the rim. His flashes of skill on offense are tantalizing, if often a result of still-unearned bravado. He’s in line for a big third season behind Embiid.
