In the summer session thus far, the Sixers have displayed an explosive 40-point performance from Furkan Korkmaz, a handful of highlight reel worthy plays from Zhaire Smith and glimpses of promise from Cameron Oliver.
Like three siblings, similar yet all unique, the third game on Monday will likely present facets of these young players that have yet to fully be displayed.
Continue to watch for forms of offensive life in Jonah Bolden. The Sixers former second-round draft pick of the 2017 NBA draft, has averaged just 5.5 points and 5.0 rebounds this summer. With this said, Bolden’s ability to rebound and defend can benefit the Sixers right away as he becomes a more consistent shooter.
For Washington, Troy Brown Jr. has been averaging 17 points per game, despite not gaining a team win. He is a versatile playmaker and already showing promise of adapting to the environment of the NBA. Brown, who went back-to-back in the draft with Smith, is also a small forward and has experience facing Smith during a few pre-draft workouts. Watch for solid performances from both players with this added motivation on the court.
