Wing. Philadelphia 76ers. Dylan Windler. 24. player. 93.

One of the major weaknesses of the Philadelphia 76ers’ roster construction under General Manager Elton Brand revolves around the fact that the team was utterly bereft of guards. Once you get past Jimmy Butler and J.J. Redick, there was pretty much no one that could be relied on to capably run postseason offense.

Ben Simmons is a tremendous terror in transition, but he is not really an every-down ballhandler. While the team’s center rotation was clogged with the likes of Greg Monroe, Amir Johnson, Boban Marjanovic, Jonah Bolden (and more!) to spell Joel Embiid, the guard line was severely lacking.

With the 24th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, Philly should opt for one of the most productive seniors in the entire draft. Like the Jazz, the Sixers have the luxury of taking higher-floor, older players in the draft due to the team’s expedited timeline.

There’s no other way to say it: Dylan Windler was a bona fide bucket in college. Per KenPom’s player page, Windler finished 34th in the country in offensive rating (126.6), 20th in effective field goal percentage (64.9%), 12th in true shooting percentage (68%), 42nd in two-point percentage (66%) and 90th in three-point percentage (42.5%).

Beyond that, Windler is a terrific rebounder (30th in defensive rebound rate at 27.2% per KenPom), and he shot 47.8 percent on NBA-range triples per The Stepien (on a limited sample).
