Number 9: Philadelphia 76ers
Coming in at number nine is Philadelphia. The 76ers are young and although they’ll most likely make the playoffs in a weak Eastern Conference, don’t expect them to go far. For 2k purposes though, they’re sure to be a solid pick.
Joel Embiid is rated an 86. Markelle Fultz starts as an 80, but he could see that rise depending on his improvement. Ben Simmons brings versatility and J.J. Redick adds shooting. Dario Saric can come in and give you solid scoring as well and you’ll probably get some impactful dunks with Justin Anderson.
The 76ers have everything a 2k team needs. Wanna play big? Try and make Okafor useful. Wanna play small ball? Leave Simmons at the 4 and Covington at the 3. The 76ers will be a highly picked team, especially online, where they probably won’t be considered part of the top tier.
