In the past, I’ve written about starting point guard rankings and then Christopher Kline, the former site expert of The Sixer Sense, took over those rankings. Now that Kline has moved on I’m taking over these rankings again and am excited to see where the Philadelphia 76ers starting point guard ranks.

Before jumping into this, it’s essential to note unless a player is projected to miss half or more of this upcoming season, they will be included on this list. With that being written, let’s begin.

30. Collin Sexton, Jazz

There are a lot of questions surrounding the Utah Jazz’s starting point guard spot. However, based on their depth it feels like the job is for Collin Sexton to lose. There’s no question about Sexton’s scoring ability, but his defense and playmaking have much to be desired. It will be interesting to see if the 6-foot-1 combo guard will be able to retain the starting job if he gets it.

29. Jevon Carter, Bulls

After the news broke that Lonzo Ball will likely miss all of next season, the Chicago Bulls signed Jevon Carter in free agency who has the best chance to be their starter next season. The 6-foot-1 defensive journeyman has been a career backup up to this point, but after having a career year with the Milwaukee Bucks, the 3-and-D guard appears to be ready for a starting gig.

28. Tre Jones, Spurs

The only credible threat to Tre Jones’ starting job with the San Antonio Spurs is Devonte Graham and it doesn’t seem likely that Jones loses out to him. Outside of a shaky 3-point, the 6-foot-1 facilitator has all of the skills to be a modern point guard with his playmaking and solid defense.

27. Kyle Lowry, Heat

Let’s be clear, assuming the Miami Heat do trade for Portland Trail Blazers star point guard, then Kyle Lowry won’t be starting next season, if he’s still on their roster. However, despite being a former All-Star, the 6-foot point guard is better served as a backup, but the Heat does not have another better option at this point.

26. Dennis Schroder, Raptors

The Toronto Raptors lost their free-agent point guard to the Houston Rockets and as a result, they signed Dennis Schroder this offseason so that they would have someone solid at the position. Schroder is better as a spark plug scorer off the bench, but the Raptors will have to manage with the 6-foot-3 guard as their starter.
