Philadelphia 76ers: Does Buddy Hield still fit like a glove?



Article Summary:

Paired up with some combination of Seth Curry, Danny Green, and Tobias Harris, depending on who was still on the team after a trade, Hield would give the team plenty of options to generate halfcourt offense around their two interior scoring options, with an ability to hide his defensive liabilities on an opposing team’s third perimeter option.

While folding Hield into the fray won’t magically add 16.8 points per game to the team’s average points per game or magically vault the Sixers’ offense from third to first overall league-wide, his 3 point efficiency and volume would surely help to elevate Philly’s average attempts per game and keep their efficiency among the best in the league. If Maxey, Curry, and Hield had to share the court for an extended period of time, it would put a ton of pressure on the team’s 21-year-old point guard – not to mention Embiid in the middle – and likely lead to underwhelming results. At best, Hield is still a very good fit with the former, a marginal fit with the latter, and a question mark in the third category, as the team would surely need to execute at least one more trade to further provide parody to the roster.
