Sixers are the worst team in NBA 2K16

Count the producers of NBA 2K16 among those with low expectations for the Sixers this season. In the game's three-tiered online ranking system the Sixers rank dead last.

The ranking is not so surprising, considering that the Sixers highest-rated players in the game, Noel and Okafor, are both rated only 77. The Sixers and the Nuggets are the only two currents teams in the game whose best player is rated below an 80. Check out the full player ratings for the Sixers below:

The Sixers' point guard puzzle

While several pieces have fallen into place for the Sixers' lineup heading into the 2015-16 NBA season, the point guard position remains open.

Jordan McRae not expected at Sixers training camp

Although things could change in the next couple of weeks, a source with knowledge of the situation informed me that the Sixers do not expect Jordan McRae to be with the team for upcoming training camp.

McRae, who was the 58th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, was offered the required tender in the form of a non-guaranteed, one-year minimum deal by the Sixers last week, which allows the team to keep his rights for the season if he again signs overseas. He has yet to accept the offer.
