Check out ESPN’s projections for the NBA’s Eastern Conference:
T-14. SIXERS Proj. record: 20-62 Last season: 10-72
Our projections have the 76ers doubling their win total from last season thanks in part to No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons. While it’s a projection of “only” 20 wins, for Philadelphia that would be the franchise’s most since 2012-13 when the Sixers won 34 games.
