There is very little we know for sure about the future of our 76ers. We know Ben Simmons will be around for a long while; and after his AND 1 mix-tape exhibition, errr Las Vegas Summer League performance, fans are thinking his impact will be fairly immediate. We know the team will give Dario Saric a long chance at proving he’s an NBA talent. We know Jerryd Bayless will be around thanks to his brand new 3-year, $27 million contract. And that’s about it.
Despite all the assets on this roster, no one outside of the organization really knows who will stick with this team for the long haul. In fact, not even the team’s front office knows for sure since Colangelo and company don’t have access to all the potential trades that could come this way. The future is murky, which is just the way it should be for a team rebuilding essentially from scratch.
