Jrue Holiday will benefit most from Andrew Bynum's arrival
As great as adding Bynum is, it won't mean anything if he doesn't play well with the others on the floor.
Jrue Holiday at point guard shouldn't have any trouble adapting to playing with a legitimate force at center. In fact, Bynum's presence could force Holiday to shoot more from longer distances. An area of the game that he succeeds in, but doesn't take enough chances at.
Holiday will benefit most from Bynum's addition, and it's hard to see either of these guys struggling to play together.
Jason Richardson has the potential to thrive this year. Bynum's presence down low will force defenders to sag in and help on the block, leaving players like Richardson open on the three-point line.
He played well alongside Dwight Howard with the Orlando Magic, so it doesn't make sense to assume that anything will go wrong while playing next to Bynum.
The player that could end up changing his game most this season is Evan Turner. He is one of the best rebounding wings in the league, but there aren't going to be as many opportunities to rebound the ball with Bynum under the hoop.
Turner will have to contribute more on the scoreboard instead of to the rebounding totals. He'll need to be able to knock down open shots and get to the rim at a high rate. If he can accomplish both of those tasks, then the two will work well together.
Spencer Hawes has never been too big of a threat on offense. He does a couple things well, like knock down open shots with range on his jumper, but he's still low on the list as far as offense goes.
His biggest change will come on the defensive end of the floor. Philadelphia now has two good shot blockers in Bynum and Hawes. That sounds perfect and all, but look at it more closely and you'll find potential troubles.
Hawes will now have to guard power forwards and athletic centers when he and Bynum share the floor. That means he'll be defending players like Amare Stoudemire, Andrea Bargnani and Chris Bosh.
Finding a way to defend these types of players will be difficult for Hawes to do, and could end up being one of the only major problems from Bynum's arrival.
As a whole, the Sixers should be able to work well together.
It all comes down to trusting one another and buying into Doug Collins' system.
