The Sixers main need this offseason will be at both guard spots. If Andre Miller leaves, that leaves a hole at the point guard position. The Sixers could also use an upgrade at shooting guard with Willie Green as the starter. Lou Williams may be ready to start this year, but the Sixers could use a quality guy at both spots.
Here are three guards who are projected to go late lottery-end of first round who could end up with the Sixers:
1. Stephen Curry
If you're into March Madness Betting, you probably know Curry as the guy who singlehandedly ruined your bracket last year. There have been many complaints about Curry's size and athletic ability that lead people to assume his success in college may not translate well to the NBA. Curry end up being a role player his whole career, but he would provide great scoring off the bench. He has nice range and leadership ability, and is one of the nation's top scorers once again this season.
2. Ty Lawson
Lawson is the leader of one of the top teams in the country this season in North Carolina. He led the Tarheels past rival Duke scoring 21 points in the second half to lead a comeback turned blowout. He has the speed, quickness, strength, and ball handling ability to be a great late first round steal.
3. Eric Maynor
Maynor is a small school guy from Virginia Commonwealth who has gone a little under the radar. He is a great clutch performer who excells in pressure packed situations. He has the size (6'3") and the speed to be a great guard in the NBA. Maynor has an unorthodox shot release which can result in allowing defenders more time to disrupt the shot, but that has not been much of a problem this season. If you're in to Sports Betting, make sure you have Maynor and VCU on the first round upset.
