The Philadelphia 76ers tried to build a super team last year after acquiring both Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris. They built one of the best starting lineups as that duo teamed up with Ben Simmons, JJ Reddick, and Joel Embiid. That starting lineup should look very dangerous as is but in the playoffs, their team began seeing their weaknesses exposed. Their bench was thin and lacked any type of explosive players. In the first round, they were able to defeat the young Brooklyn Nets though they weren’t able to overcome the more experienced and star heavy Toronto Raptors.

This year, Philadelphia brings back a similar team though with two major changes. Jimmy Butler is now gone as he’s off to find his own team in Miami and Al Horford was brought in after opting out of his contract with Boston. The two are entirely different players and will bring a different dimension to their game. However, the biggest question mark will be whether they’ll be able to bring in help for their bench and provide some support for their starting unit.

2020 Philadelphia 76ers Roster Questions

FAQ

Philadelphia has put together a mixture of young up and coming talent and veterans for their roster. Joel Embiid is now in his 4th season in the NBA and has overcome some significant injuries early on. The same goes for Ben Simmons, who was drafted a year after Embiid was, but both have developed together after Embiid took a year off. Tobias Harris and Al Horford are more seasoned veterans, especially Horford who is over 12 years in the league. Horford came over from the Boston Celtics after they opted not to give him the contract he was looking for. Philadelphia jumped on it and put him next to Embiid. The 76ers also drafted Matisse Thybulle who resembles a lot of what Robert Covington did a few years ago where he is more known for his defense and three-point shooting.

How Much Are The 76ers Worth?

The Philadelphia 76ers rank just outside the top 10 in team valuation. They were valued in 2020 at $2 billion, which ranked 11th in the NBA. The 76ers play in one of the broader markets, so no surprise to see them inside the top half.

Who Owns The 76ers?

The 76ers are owned by David Blitzer and Joshua Harris who run a sports company called Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment. They also have ownership of the New Jersey Devils and Crystal Palace. Harris and Blitzer are also seeking ownership of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Who Is The 76ers Head Coach?

Brett Brown is the head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers and has been since 2013. He is also the coach of the Australian National Team, as that is his birth country. Brown has had a long history in the NBA as he was a product of the Spurs coaching staff.

What Is The 76ers Salary Cap?

The 76ers have a salary cap of $130,102,816 for the 2019-20 season. It is made up by a few big names with Al Horford, Joel Embiid, and Tobias Harris all taking up over 20% of the salary cap.

Who Did The 76ers Recently Trade For?

With the 76ers needing some bench scoring they went out and traded for Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson who had more minutes in Golden State due to injuries. Philadelphia sent a few second-round picks in return.

Who Is The 76ers Highest-Paid Player?

After signing a max deal just this prior season, Tobias Harris is the highest-paid player. He has a base salary of $32,742,000. He makes up 25% of the 76ers salary cap, and this might be a surprise with some of the names on the roster.

Who Is The Best Player On The 76ers?

Joel Embiid is the best player on the 76ers and has averaged 24 points and 11 rebounds during 200+ games with the 76ers. While he has had his health issues, there is no doubt Embiid is the best player out there when healthy.
