Shake Milton was the starting point guard for the Sixers vs. the Grizzlies on Friday, during which he scored six points, handed out three assists and hit one triple.
Milton received 17 minutes and the starting unit performed well while he was on the floor, and that's basically as important as Milton's own performance. The Sixers hope that his presence as a floor spacer will let Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons thrive, and it will take time for that answer to reveal itself. Milton's not going to be a mid-round player in standard leagues like he was while Simmons was injured before the shutdown, but he could emerge as a 3-point specialist as a starter.
