Sixers' preseason-opening lineup offers plenty of questions
Ready or not, rookie and 11th overall pick Michael Carter-Williams is the starting point guard. Playing at shooting guard is James Anderson, with a 3.7-point scoring average in 116 games. Evan Turner will play small forward, with Thaddeus Young at power forward and Spencer Hawes at center.
If you're an opposing team, doesn't that squad scream of packing in a zone and daring the players to beat you with outside shooting? It is a very big area of concern for the Sixers, and one of many. Anderson was a scorer in college at Oklahoma State, averaging 22.3 his final season. But he is at his scoring best getting to the basket, not so much from outside.
