Philadelphia 76ers: Passing on Danuel House feels like a mistake



Article Summary:

Despite being a team conceivably looking to win now, the Sixers have six players on their roster on either rookie-scale contracts or two-way deals who aren’t regular parts of Doc Rivers’ rotation. Theoretically, that’s good, as it’s always nice to have a pipeline of young, ascending talent, but when you factor in Ben Simmons’ absence, that leaves the Sixers with just 10 players who earn regular minutes in full-strength games.

Andre Drummond is a goofy player who looks good in some situations and unplayable in others, Shake Milton is not a good fit as Tyrese Maxey’s backup, Matisse Thybulle has played his way onto the bench in more games than one due to bad offensive showings, and the duo of Furkan Korkmaz and Georges Niang had ridden varying streaks of hot and cold shooting all season long. Sure, maybe the team gets lucky, and an off-the-street player/G-Leaguer becomes the next Marco Belinelli, but realistically, fans would settle for the next Corey Brewer, who plays a few games, generates some goodwill in the City of Brotherly Love, and moves on to his next NBA home.
