That we'll be sharing with New Jersey. These are the guys that are on the Sixers portion of the roster...
Blake Ahearn (D-League rookie of the year)
Not sure who the Nets are sending besides Terrence Williams. I would assume Chris Douglas Roberts will be there. Not sure about Courtney Lee and I'm 90% sure Brook Lopez won't be there. Hoping Lee doesn't participate so Christmas can see more floor time.
The guys you may not know...
- You should
know him. Last guy in my avatar after the owl. Led the A-10 in scoring 3 straight seasons, set the Temple record for 3 pointers made. Was expected to be a 2nd round pick Thursday but went undrafted. Has the best chance to make the roster with the lack of guard depth and 3 point shooting.
- Local guy from Penn Charter. Got some run with the Warriors last year but from what I saw of him he was trash. Had 2 games of 30+ minutes, one where he had 20 pts/7 rebs/2 blcks/2 steals/3-3 from downtown in 33 minutes. The other game he had 21 pts/5 rebs/3 assists/1 steal/4-7 from downtown in 38 minutes. Don't take those stats too seriously, like I said, he sucks.
- The guy I know the least about. Has had some 10 day contracts with the Heat and Spurs. Was D-League rookie of the year in '07-'08. Is known as a shooter as he posted %s of 44% from 3 and 96% from free throws in the D-League. Small guy at only 6'2".
- I saw a lot of Forbes in the A-10 his senior season where he was A-10 player of the year. Small forward who has a nice in between game and plays very physical for his size. Not a shooter though. Was thought to be a 2nd round pick last year but went undrafted.
EDIT: Brook Lopez will play
