Sixers Exercising Patience with Roster
Somewhere down the line, when their catch is fully examined, the Sixers hope to have found a few pearls. The history of the league suggests that what you usually find is oysters. This does not particularly deter (Sixers general manager Sam) Hinkie.
“Any player we’re investing in, we do it because we assume they’re undervalued,” Hinkie said.
“We’ll focus on building something that will end in a place everybody will be proud of. If our young players play great, then things will move on quickly. If they don’t, then it will move along more slowly,” Hinkie said. “It’s a little early right now. (Nerlens, Michael) [Noel and Carter-Williams] are both under contract for four years. That allows you to look around the bend a little bit, and look past a turnover or be patient with an injury.”
