30 In 30: Philadelphia 76ers

LY W-L: 34-48

Key Additions: Michael Carter-Williams, Nerlens Noel, Royce White

Key Departures: Jrue Holiday

Analysis

The Philadelphia 76ers had a pretty crazy draft and offseason to say the least.

Sixers GM, Sam Hinkie, made one of the boldest and most surprising moves in the draft, trading away all-star point guard Jrue Holiday, for Nerlens Noel and a 2014 draft pick. Sixers’ fans thought Holiday was the face of this franchise moving forward, but Hinkie had another plan in mind. The Sixers are now left with a team similar to the Charlotte Bobcats; a team in which it will take several years to get back into playoff contention.

It will be a huge year for Evan Turner as expectations are higher than ever. Sixers’ fans are still waiting for Turner to prove himself.

While it’s going to be a very rough next few seasons for 76ers fans, it will be exciting to watch some of the younger guys on the roster develop, as well as the fact that Hinkie has a true plan.

It will be a rough, but a very interesting year for this 76ers franchise.

(Projected) 2013-2014 W-L: 20-62

The Sixers are going to struggle tremendously. This is a young team currently in the rebuilding process. Sixers fans, be prepared for the next couple seasons to be rough ones.
