Brett Brown suggested rookie Matisse Thybulle could be the first player off the bench for the Sixers this season.
When asked whether he'd be comfortable having the rookie in the opening night rotation, Brown said that that's the direction he's leaning in. Given Philadelphia's lack of depth, having a versatile player like Thybulle on the wings makes sense in Brown's second unit. Thybulle would only need minutes in the mid-20s to hit value for fantasy managers, so he's quickly become a name to target in the back end fantasy drafts with this news for his upside in the defensive categories alone.
