HERE’S WHY SIXERS’ BANDWAGON IS FILLING UP FAST!

By Michael Donovan

Trading up with Boston to get Markelle Fultz at No. 1 in the draft brings even more excitement to a Sixers franchise on a real upswing.

A roster with Fultz, Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Dario Saric, J. J. Redick (above) and Amir Johnson looks like a legit playoff team in the East.

Here’s where CBSSportsline sees the Sixers:

SIXERS WINS WIN% PLAYOFF EAST SEED
Before Redick 39.7 48.4% 58.7% 8th
With Redick 42.0 51.2% 80% 6th
IMPACT +2.3 +2.8% +21.3% +2

By signing Redick and Johnson to one-year deals, the Sixers seriously sped up the process, adding two veterans to mentor this young roster while continuing to keep their already flexible salary cap situation wide open.

Philly is quickly becoming a place where legit free agents might well want to play.
