I voted Bucks, but I had to stop and think to consider the Sixers. The Sixers could do it as Josh Richardson isn't chopped liver, but they lost Jimmy Butler and would have to show something again this season in order to get the fans rooting for them. Certainly, they could rise if their players develop and the team gels.

Sixers lost Butler & Redick but added Al Horford & Richardson.
Bucks lost Brogdon & Mirotic bud added a bunch of bench players.
The Sixers come out ahead IMO.

1) Bucks 2) Raps 3) 76ers.......6ers could be the worst 3 point shooting team in the NBA

How is that? We were #8 in 3pt% last year and #19 in volume. Richardson/Horford = Redick/Butler in terms of 3pt volume, and there's no way they would drop us from 8 to 30 in efficiency. Especially when you consider the improved 3pt shooting of our bench.

Mirotic only played 14 games in the regular season and was unplayable against the Raptors...dude got a DNP. Not much of a loss
