The Temple product Lavoy Allen shined in the playoffs last season but has disappeared for the most part this season. Under the tutelage of Al Jefferson, Allen would develop his inside game and be in line to be a vital big man for the 76ers down the road.
Hawes' ability to score down low and his physicality must improve, although he has shown flashes of brilliance this season, posting some eye-opening lines. Some lineups could see Hawes at the power forward and Jefferson at the center, expanding the defense because of Hawes' shooting ability.
Richardson hasn't played since Jan. 18 and he is getting up there in age at 32. He is another player who can provide veteran leadership. Richardson always has the ability to knock down three-point shots at a consistent rate which could be an important element if starters were to go stagnant.
Moultrie was severely underutilized this season, especially because it's been known that reaching the playoffs has been a long shot for a while. The Mississippi State product averaged just under 11 minutes per game but has shown flashes of constant hustle and a knack for scoring around the rim. Next season, Moultrie will be given more minutes, thus giving him the opportunity to prove himself.
Re-signing Wilkins to a relatively cheap contract won't mean much in the long run for the organization. Wilkins has looked like a quality NBA player at times, but then at other moments he has fans wondering why he is in the game, let alone starting. Wilkins plays hard, so if anything he will battle starters in practice, fighting for playing time.
Nate Robinson (Free Agent)
The Sixers drop-off at the point guard position behind Jrue Holiday has never been more evident than this past season. Nate Robinson would certainly change that. He is having an outstanding year in Chicago, averaging 13.3 points per game and bringing tenacity every time he steps on the court.
Robinson coming off the bench to spell Holiday would ensure a backup point guard who can control the tempo of the game.
C.J. McCollum (Rookie)
Playing behind J.R. Smith could do wonders for the senior from Lehigh. McCollum can score in bunches and coming off the bench in limited minutes as a rookie would open some opportunities for big scoring nights, while asserting himself as a consistent scorer as his career progresses.
James Southerland (Rookie)
Coming out of Syracuse, Southerland can play at the small forward or power forward. His shooting in the NCAA Tournament caught a lot of teams off guard. If he is able to knock down open shots off of dribble drives, he will be doing all he is asked to do for the most part in his rookie season.
