Philadelphia 76ers Team Overview

2010-11 record: 41-41

Third place, Atlantic Division

Lost in first round to Miami

DRAFT PICKS:

Round: 1

Round: 2

#50 : Lavoy Allen

Areas of Strength:
Balance and depth. The Sixers made the playoffs without anyone averaging more than 15 points per game. And they had a top-10 defense without an interior presence. Doug Collins made the most of his team's talent through coaching and teamwork. Philly had six guys averaging double-figures, including two, Lou Williams and Thaddeus Young, off the bench.

Needs Work:
Late-game execution. The Sixers' overall record was worse than it should have been, because they were 8-17 in games decided by five points or less, when their lack of a go-to scorer really hurt them.

Two Stats That Matter:
13.6
-- The Sixers turned the ball over just 13.6 times per 100 possessions, fewest in the league.

28.6% -- Andre Iguodala's shooting percentage (10-for-35) in the final three minutes of the fourth quarter or overtime with a score differential of three points or less, worst among 35 players who attempted at least 28 shots in such situations.

The Way To Go:
With Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner already in the fold, the Sixers should be looking for a big man with the 16th pick. Beyond that, their ability to make moves is still restricted by the lucrative contracts of Iguodala and Elton Brand. They'll surely look at what they can get for Iguodala in the trade market, but priority No. 1 will be re-signing Young.
