Adding Andrew Bynum to the mix was huge for the Philadelphia 76ers, but they have so many new pieces that it remains to be seen how they will all gel.
The Sixers will return only five players from last season's roster, giving head coach Doug Collins a nearly brand new roster to toy with.
What the Sixers lacked in the past was a consistent inside-out game—something they now have. With Bynum, Spencer Hawes, Lavoy Allen and even Kwame Brown, the 76ers finally have some front court depth, although it's up to Collins to figure out what the best pairings will be.
Don't discount Thaddeus Young just because he comes off of the bench, either. Young is one of the league's most versatile defenders, using his length and athleticism to match up against opposing 2s, 3s and 4s.
In addition to some depth in the frontcourt, the Sixers now have some wings who can actually shoot the ball at a proficient rate. The Sixers leading scorer last season, Lou Williams signed with the Atlanta Hawks, leaving a massive scoring void that needed to be filled.
The Sixers acted quickly, signing Nick Young and trading for swingman Dorell Wright. In addition to Young and Wright, the Sixers acquired shooting guard Jason Richardson in the Dwight Howard blockbuster, a veteran piece who will help stabilize the Sixers' new-look starting lineup.
Anything less than a top-six seed in the Eastern Conference would be a disappointment for the Sixers.
