Sixers offense from bad to worse: Tony Wroten out week with sprained knee

6 Comments

The Philadelphia 76ers are scoring a league-worst 92.2 points per 100 possessions so far this season (according to Basketball-Reference.com). Actually, not just league worst this season, that number would tie for the worst offense in NBA history (with the 76-77 Nets and 02-03 Nuggets).

Now the Sixers is about to get worse as they will be without their leading scorer, Tony Wroten, for at stretch.

From Dei Lynam of CSNPhilly.com.

Wroten is averaging 17.9 points per game and coach Brett Brown had tried playing him next to Michael Carter-Williams in a gunning backcourt (together they average better than 30 shots a game, and neither is a good shooter). Wroten has been a turnover machine this season, coughing up the ball on 18.9 percent of his possessions he ended this season). That said, this team needs points and he can get them, if not efficently.

No Wroten in the starting lineup could mean more K.J. McDaniels, and that would be good for all of us.
