Grade
FrnCourt
The Sixers won't miss Samuel Dalembert's inconsistency, but they will miss his shotblocking and offensive rebounding. Andres Nocioni gives them some toughness at the forward spot.

C

BckCourt
Evan Turner will eventually give the Sixers a go-to scorer, and he'll team with Jrue Holiday to form maybe the most promising backcourt in the league.

A

Defense
The Sixers have the personnel to be a great defensive team (at least on the perimeter). They just need the system, and that's on new coach Doug Collins.

B

Bench
The Sixers will be very deep on the perimeter, but unless Marreese Speights can put it all together, they're still thin up front.

C

Coaching
In eight previous seasons as a coach, Collins has never had great success. But he'll get this team back focused on the defensive end, and the Sixers clearly needed (another) new voice.

Summary

The Sixers were a complete mess last season, even if you ignore Allen Iverson's two-month return to Philadelphia. The team never bought what Eddie Jordan was selling and no team underachieved more than this one did.

Some lottery luck made the rebuilding process a little easier. Now, priority No. 1 for the Sixers will be allowing Holiday and Turner to grow. Andre Iguodala and Elton Brand can still win games in this league and the talent and opportunity is there for this team to make the playoffs again. But the high-paid veterans will go only as far as their young backcourt is ready to take them.
