“Matisse Thybulle’s flight up to No. 4 is based almost entirely on defense. He averaged only 4.3 points and shot 33.0 percent from three over his first two seasons, but he’s already one of the game’s best defenders. …
“He’s a menace all over the floor, and against anyone from point guards to power forwards. “
The 76ers snagged Thybulle with the 20th overall pick by trading up with the Boston Celtics a couple of years ago.
If Thybulle can hit the three consistently, he’ll become one of the Sixers’ key players and could potentially jump Danny Green in the starting lineup.
While many suggest the Sixers should begin to utilize Thybulle in the starting lineup, his offensive value might hold him back for now as the Sixers need all of the shooting they can get surrounding Joel Embiid.
