On Tuesday the Sixers will open their 2015 training camp at Stockton University in Galloway Township. This will be that last year the Sixers will have to be guests in another team’s gym for training camp as next season the Sixers’ state-of-the-art practice facility in Camden is expected to be open for business.
In anticipation of the start of camp, the Sixers have released their training camp roster:
Isaiah Canaan – Guard/Murray State
Tony Wroten – Guard/Washington
Nerlens Noel – Center/Kentucky
Kendall Marshall – Guard/North Carolina
Carl Landry – Forward/Purdue
Jahlil Okafor – Center/Duke
JaKarr Sampson – Guard-Forward/St. John’s
Nik Stauskas – Guard/Michigan
T.J. McConnell – Guard/Arizona
Furkan Aldemir – Forward-Center
Joel Embiid – Center/Kansas
Richaun Holmes – Forward/Bowling Green
J.P. Tokoto – Guard/North Carolina
Scottie Wilbekin – Guard/Florida
Hollis Thompson – Guard-Forward/Georgetown
Robert Covington – Forward/Tennessee State
Christian Wood – Forward/UNLV
Jerami Grant – Forward/Syracuse
Jordan McRae – Guard/Tennessee
Pierre Jackson – Guard/Baylor
With the point guard position still in a constant state of flux, there should be some nice competition to see who the team’s starting guard will be on opening night against the Boston Celtics. Otherwise, you can expect a number of the names listed above to either head overseas or play for the Sixers D-League affiliate, the Delaware 87ers.
Head coach Brett Brown has already said he wants a lot less turnover in the roster this season and expects to have at some some degree of stability. While it remains to be seen if that will be the case, one can hope he will get his wish.
Training camp will run from September 29 through October 3 with the first preseason game against the Washington Wizards on October 6.
