player. 93. . F. Philadelphia 76ers. Danuel House Jr.. 11

Danuel House Jr. re-entered the rotational fold after the All-Star break. He’s a difficult player to grasp offensively. He’s a reliable spot-up shooter on paper, but he frequently makes things harder than they need to be with pointless dribbles and his patented, oftentimes unwarranted step-back. He can provide frenzied defense on the wing, however, which could be enough to earn looks from Doc Rivers in the postseason.

93. . F. Philadelphia 76ers. Georges Niang. 10. player

Georges Niang will need to prove that he can defend on the biggest stage, but the Sixers continue to get significant value out of his high-volume shooting and effervescent spunk. Embiid and Harden generate so much gravity offensively that Niang’s value as a spacer and play-finisher is difficult to overstate.

. C. Philadelphia 76ers. Paul Reed. 9. player. 93

Despite the many imperfections in his game, Paul Reed impacts winning by sheer force of will. He’s easily the hardest competitor on the team, a no-nonsense defender who makes to make every stop and embarrass his opponent in the process. His energy on the boards, his penchant for generating turnovers, and his flashes of budding skill on the offensive end make Reed the ideal backup 5 heading into the postseason.

player. 93. . G. Philadelphia 76ers. Shake Milton. 8

Shake Milton increasingly checks a lot of boxes for the Sixers. He can shoot, create off the dribble, put pressure on the rim, and defend multiple positions as a 6-foot-7 guard with a 7-foot-plus wingspan. There just aren’t many noticeable holes in his game, even if his numbers don’t leap off the page when the team is at full strength.

93. . F. Philadelphia 76ers. Jalen McDaniels. 7. player

Jalen McDaniels’ defensive presence has been a nice boon for the Sixers’ second unit. At 6-foot-9, his arms are all over the place and he’s the perfect switchable wing for the postseason. His inconsistency from deep will pose some challenges offensively, but McDaniels does enough as a cutter and slasher to stay on the floor.
