PROJECTED 2015 SEASON STATS
1. Nerlens Noel, Phi C, PFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics------------------------
2015 Projections7331.4.512.6020.08.31.00.501.12.42.015.3
2015 Outlook: The Sixers made a long-term investment when they drafted Noel in 2013, and they stuck to their guns and didn't play him at all last season. Now it's time for the payoff, as Noel is 100 percent over his torn ACL and will get all of the minutes he can handle on the super-young Sixers roster. We know that the blocks, steals and rebounds will come right away for the 20-year-old. His true upside will depend on how well he settles in as a scorer. The long-term potential could be something like 20 PPG, 11 RPG, 1.5 SPG, 3.0 BPG. And considering how many minutes and touches are available for Noel, it's not inconceivable that he could do at least 17 PPG, 9 RPG and 2.5 BPG right out of the gate. --TC
2. K.J. McDaniels, Phi SF, SGYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics------------------------
2015 Projections7625.8.444.7530.64.30.90.690.81.41.310.0
2015 Outlook: The second pick of the 2014 draft's second round is a tantalizing fantasy prospect as a small forward capable of blocking a lot of shots. In fact, McDaniels led the ACC with 2.8 BPG last season while chipping in 17.1 PPG, 1.2 3s, 7.1 RPG and 1.1 SPG. He is 6-foot-6 with a 6-foot-11 wingspan and incredibly athletic, which makes him a versatile defender. He could form a tag team with Hollis Thompson at small forward as the defensive complement to Thompson's 3-point specialist role. Both carry sleeper potential. If McDaniels wants to seize full starter's minutes as a rookie, he'll have to improve his jumper and prove that he can settle in offensively. --TC

4. Andrei Kirilenko*, Phi SFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS

2015 Projections5325.1.509.6530.34.42.21.461.20.71.58.5
2015 Outlook: Considering that Kirilenko is 33 years old and can't be counted on to stay healthy, he's worth only a late-round flier on draft day. Odds are that he will be on and off the waiver wire most of the season, but he does have a chance to rebound from last season's poor outing. The Nets' SF and PF spots are open for competition and new coach Lionel Hollins likes guys who can play D. --TC
5. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, Phi SF, PFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS
2014 Statistics6415.7.451.6870.12.30.60.900.50.20.63.5
2015 Projections5918.4.444.6400.13.20.70.870.60.30.84.8
2015 Outlook: Mbah a Moute's best attribute is his unique name. In practical terms, he is a back-of-the-rotation player who doesn't offer any statistical upside. However, most of the 76ers roster also fits that description or is barely out of college. That means Mbah a Moute could have some brief stretches of relevance in deep leagues. --TC
6. Malcolm Thomas, Phi PFYEARGPMINFG%FT%3PMREBASTA/TOSTLBLKTOPTS

2014 Statistics7722.6.460.7120.93.20.91.220.70.20.86.0
2015 Projections------------------------
2015 Outlook: Thompson has "sleeper" written all over him, because he's a relative unknown who has a great chance to start and shoot a lot of 3s. Thompson set a Georgetown record with a career 44.0 3-point percentage but went undrafted in 2012. Last season, as a rookie with the Sixers, Thompson led all rookies with a 40.1 3-point percentage. The 76ers remain extremely young, which means Thompson has an excellent chance to start at shooting guard or small forward and get off a lot of 3-point shots. Thompson might be a specialist (i.e., don't expect much other than 3s, points, a good FG percentage and some boards), but everyone needs those stats, too. --TC
