No.   Player   Pos.   Ht.   Wt.   Age   School   Exp.

0   SPENCER HAWES   C   7-1   245   23   Washington   4

Good offensive skills, not intimidating on defense. Would be a big help if he posed a scoring threat.

4   TONY BATTIE   C   6-11   240   35   Texas Tech   13

A big body who can eat up fouls and cause a little havoc under the basket; won't play much.

5   ANDRES NOCIONI   F   6-7   225   32   Argentina   7

His minutes would have to come from Turner, Holiday, Meeks, or Williams. So very hard to come by.

8   NIKOLA VUCEVIC   F-C   7-0   240   21   USC   R

The rookie's best chance at playing time is scoring, where the Sixers are a little lacking in front court.

9   ANDRE IGUODALA   G-F   6-6   207   27   Arizona   7

Needs a bounce-back season in scoring column for Sixers to contend. Has 20 ppg potential.

11   JRUE HOLIDAY   G   6-4   180   21   UCLA   2

Emerging floor leader, he's still very young but has look of an elite NBA point guard in the (near?) future.

12   EVAN TURNER   G-F   6-7   205   23   Ohio State   1

Team feels he's improved since so-so rookie year. Can he shoot? And was he worth the No. 2 pick?

16   MARREESE SPEIGHTS   F-C   6-10   255   24   Florida   3

Earns added patience because his upside appears to be high at times. But clock is ticking fourth year in.

20   JODIE MEEKS   G   6-4   208   24   Kentucky   2

May become an offensive spark off the bench this season after starting at two-guard most of last season.

21   THADDEUS YOUNG   F   6-8   220   23   Georgia Tech   4

Flourished in sixth-man role under Collins. Has ability to change games with his energy, athleticism.

23   LOUIS WILLIAMS   G   6-1   175   25   S.Gwinnett HS Ga   6

A pure scorer, he gets minutes with his shooting and smarts. Will be part of a lot of three-guard lineups.

33   CRAIG BRACKINS   F   6-10   230   24   Iowa State   1

He didn't make much of an impact as a rookie. Playing time is available if he shows team something.

42   ELTON BRAND   F   6-9   254   32   Duke   12

Huge comeback year under Collins, he's a statesman on this team and by far its best interior presence.

50   LAVOY ALLEN   F   6-9   225   22   Temple   R

Temple rookie is a natural rebounder, and that's how he'll see the floor on team in need of board work.EndText
