Don't be shocked to hear Hollis Thompson's name mentioned among the most improved players this season.
With a roster ripe with youth and inexperience, and lacking an established offensive option, it seems safe to say that the Sixers will struggle to score at times this season.
As a team, the Sixers ranked 19th in the league last season, scoring an average of 99.5 points per game. Much of that production however was a result of the pace with which the team played. The Sixers attempted 87.2 field goals per game last season, second-most in the league behind only the Minnesota Timberwolves, who attempted 87.5 per game. A slightly slower pace this year, which Brett Brown has hinted at this offseason, would lead to less field goal attempts and in turn, less offensive output.
