Maxey has done more than enough to prove in these playoffs that he deserves to be the starting point guard next season. Which is very good if Simmons stays on the roster moving forward
Not only does the 20-year-old point guard have plenty of room to grow, but it’s also clear that Simmons can’t continue being the Sixers point guard based on his postseason failures. Whether Simmons gets traded or becomes a point forward, there’s a strong opportunity that unless the 76ers bring in an established veteran point guard via trade or free agency that Maxey will be the starting point guard next season.
With a full offseason to develop his skills, added with his already impressive potential and the situation surrounding Simmons, there’s little reason why Maxey shouldn’t be the starting point guard next season.
