The Philadelphia 76ers drafted budding superstar Ben Simmons out of LSU with the first pick of the 2016 NBA Draft. Simmons is a once-in-a-generation type of talent reminiscent of LeBron James or Magic Johnson as a big forward who can handle the ball and pass like a point guard. With Simmons running the offense the talent that Philadelphia has compiled should flourish. Also entering his rookie season is Croatian big man Dario Saric. Saric was the 12th overall pick in the 2014 draft and was a star in this summer’s Rio Olympics. Saric is a well-balanced player who can make plays all over the floor and is a wizard with the basketball for someone who is almost seven feet tall. The third extremely talented big man entering his rookie season for the Sixers is Cameroonian seven-footer Joel Embiid. After two seasons trying to heal a bone fracture in his foot, Embiid is finally ready to showcase his prodigious talent in an NBA game. Astoundingly the Sixers still have two more young and talented big men. Nerlens Noel, the #6 overall pick in the 2013 draft, is a defensive monster whose game revolves around swatting away shots and dunking anything around the rim. Their fifth first round talent is Jahlil Okafor. The Duke star is one of the most skilled big men the NBA has seen since Tim Duncan and has had success no matter where he has gone. Okafor was a first team All-American in college and also a first-team All-Rookie selection last season, and despite this success Okafor continues to push for more and has the ability to score at least 20 points per game.
To fill out their extremely talented and young roster the Sixers brought in veterans Jerryd Bayless and Gerald Henderson to provide leadership and steady playmaking. Bayless is a good three point shooter and defender who should be a perfect balance to all the talented big men on the Sixers roster. Gerald Henderson is an explosive finisher and tough defender who will likely cover the opposing teams best player. If the young talented big men in Philadelphia play up to their potential this team is going to be one of the most exciting teams to watch in the NBA.
