on


Over the past 10 NBA Drafts (2006-2015), the Philadelphia 76ers have made 29 selections, yielding just one All-Star in Jrue Holiday.

The following table details the 76ers’ track record by tiers, noting the number of All-Stars and starters selected, along with players who either never made the league or were out in five years or less:

Tier Picks All-Star All-Star Appearances Starter* Not in NBA
1-5 3 0 0 1 (33.3%) 0
6-10 1 0 0 1 (100%) 0
11-15 4 0 0 2 (50%) 1 (25%)
16-20 5 1 (20%) 0 2 (40%) 1 (20%)
21-25 0 0 0 0 0
26-30 1 0 0 0 1 (100%)
31-40 4 0 0 1 (25%) 1 (25%)
41-50 3 0 0 0 2 (66.7%)
51-60 8 0 0 0 7 (87.5%)
Total 29 1 (3.4%) 0 7 (24.1%) 13 (44.8%)

*Starter criteria determined as an average of 50 or more starts, over at least 40 percent of the player’s career.

The following is the league average over the same tiers:

Tier All-Star Starter Not in NBA
1-5 12 (24%) 30 (60%) 3 (6%)
6-10 8 (16%) 30 (60%) 7 (14%)
11-15 2 (4%) 12 (24%) 8 (16%)
16-20 3 (6%) 10 (20%) 8 (16%)
21-25 2 (4%) 8 (16%) 15 (30%)
26-30 1 (2%) 5 (10%) 20 (40%)
31-40 1 (2%) 11 (11%) 52 (52%)
41-50 2 (2%) 8 (8%) 70 (70%)
51-60 1 (1%) 1 (1%) 87 (87%)
Total 32 (5.3%) 115 (19.7%) 270 (45.0%)

The Sixers are expecting to get both Joel Embiid and Dario Saric on the active roster next season.  Embiid missed his first two years with injury, while Saric is listed as “not in NBA” until he joins.

Note that players are included with the team through any draft-day trades.  Some teams pick well but let an eventual starter leave for another, but that’s beyond the scope of this article.  Recently drafted players have yet to officially pass the “at least five years” test, but were considered as such if on a team’s roster by the end of the 2015-16 season.

Additionally, recent picks who have yet to join the NBA may still do so, but for this analysis are considered “out.”
