How the Sixers can improve their spacing for the 2019-20 season

The Philadelphia 76ers were one of the top three teams in the Eastern Conference last season, but the Sixers’ lack of consistent spacing was a factor that kept them from being better than the Toronto Raptors and Milwaukee Bucks.

With the Sixers adding Al Horford and Josh Richardson in free agency this summer, they have renewed their efforts to contend for the title in the 2019-20 regular season.

As the Sixers prepare for a season filled with high expectations, they’ll need to focus on improving their spacing and creating more easy buckets. For a team that shared the ball well last season, the Sixers didn’t always space the floor well.

The Sixers ranked fourth in the NBA for assists per game (26.9), but they struggled against teams that defended well down low and around the middle of the floor.
