NEWS ABOUT JIMMY BUTLER
Can the team rely on a committee of players including Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris to close out games or can it only be one of them?
In a recent radio interview, current Sixer and fan favorite Mike Scott called for boos on Nov. 23 when Butler returns to Philadelphia.
We now know the dates when former Sixers Jimmy Butler, TJ McConnell and JJ Redick will be making their return's to Philly this season.
Expect Tobias Harris to play a much bigger role in the offense moving forward due to the changes made to the team this offseason.
The Sixers are showing faith in Simmons to enter next season with an improved jump shot and to show confidence using it in games. It's a risk worth taking.
