Default What should 76ers starting lineup be?

CSN Philly reports:

Fourth-year player Jrue Holiday will be the starting point guard. Andrew Bynum will be the starting center and Evan Turner will be on the floor. After that, the Sixers’ opening night lineup becomes a puzzle that is fun to try and solve.

One option is to play Turner at the small forward position, which had he not been teammates with Iguodala the past two seasons, would have likely been his regular spot for the team. That opens the shooting guard position for 11-year veteran Jason Richardson, who has started 794 of the 805 games he has played in his pro career. Richardson averaged 11.6 points in 30 minutes a night for the Magic last season.

Nick Young could give Richardson a run for his money as the starting shooting guard. However, when the Sixers signed Young this summer they viewed him as a replacement for Lou Williams, who was entrenched as the team's sixth man under the Doug Collins regime.
