Now, Augustin goes to a competitor, while the Sixers’ need at point guard remains. Stay tuned…
UPDATE [12:09 p.m.] – This isn’t really a Sixers move, but it’s obviously related to the Sixers. Will Ben Simmons be back at point guard with Danny Green and Seth Curry both getting plugged in? Or will he stay at forward, where the team was trying him out last year before he was injured? If it’s the latter, the Sixers will need someone to bring the ball up on offense, which could either be someone they’ve yet to add or Shake Milton, which would move one of Green or Curry to the bench.
If Simmons returns to the point it opens up the Sixers options for the type of bench scorer/playmaker that Kyle alluded to in his free agency primer.
