Wroten, Carter-Williams both starting for 76ers on Friday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10:48 am ET) Though the 76ers have moved high-scoring guard Tony Wroten to the sixth man role to accommodate 2013-14 Rookie of the Year Michael Carter-Williams in their starting lineup, Brett Brown is seeking ways to get both on the court simultaneously, but he wants at least one of them on the court throughout games. Both are set to start Friday night against Phoenix.
"I think for balance purposes, that's how it needs to be," Brown told NBA.com in regard to bringing Wroten off the bench. "Because they are two of our best players, they need to be on the court. ... Inevitably it's the direction we're going to have to grow it."
Wroten and Carter-Williams have improved their outside shooting this season. They combined to hit a meager 24 percent from three-point range last season but are up to a more respectable 31.4 percent this year.

|(11/13/14) Philadelphia guard Michael Carter-Williams put up 19 points Thursday against the Mavericks.
The Pacers had an awful nice, scoring just 70 points. Carter-Williams didn't have a great game, but led the way for Philadelphia. He shot 6-19 from the floor, including one from beyond the arc. He also managed 6-10 from the free throw line. He also added eight rebounds.
76ers PG Carter-Williams expecting to be sub Thursday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(11/13/14) It might be odd for the reigning NBA Rookie of the Year to come off the bench for the worst team in the NBA, but that is what Michael Carter-Williams expects when the 76ers play Dallas on Thursday night.
Carter-Williams is set to make his 2014-15 season debut against the Mavericks after recovering from shoulder surgery. He figures Brett Brown doesn't want to use him as a starter quite yet.
"I think coach is going to have me come off the bench," Carter-Willliams told the Philadelphia Daily News. "I'm just going to play my part. Coach wants to start slow. I will listen to whatever he says and just go out and play my game."
Nerlens Noel, Michael Carter Williams excited to play together
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(11/12/14) 76ers guard Michael Carter-Williams and forward Nerlens Noel are looking forward to playing in their first game together Thursday, CSNPhilly.com reports.
"It feels good ... to have Mike back," Noel said. "He can run a team at the point position. He gets a lot of guys involved, so I am looking forward to it."
"I think we have great communication without speaking," Carter-Williams said. "We have great eye contact. I know where he is going to be on the floor, and he knows where I am. I think that is hard to teach. We talk on defense but on offense we really try to use eye contact. I try to get him the ball on time and get him the ball in his spots."
Coach Brett Brown didn't say after Wednesday's practice whether or not Carter-Williams would start in his season debut. He has been slowed while recovering from May shoulder surgery.
Report: Carter-Williams expected to make season debut Thursday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(11/10/14) 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams is expected to make his season debut Thursday against the Mavericks, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. Carter-Williams has been sidelined to start the season recovering from May shoulder surgery.
Carter-Williams was named NBA Rookie of the Year last season after averaging 16.7 points, 6.3 assists and 6.2 rebounds in 70 games.
|Philadelphia was pretty much a perfect landing spot for Michael Carter-Williams, as he took home Rookie of the Year honors while racking up huge numbers while being given free rein to run the offense. He led all rookies in scoring (16.7 points per game), rebounding (6.2 per game), and assists (6.3 per game), while appearing in 70 games and averaging 34.5 minutes per game. The 76ers added little in the way of competition for Carter-Williams' minutes, so he should once again be allowed to roam wild in the team's wide-open, fast-paced offense, making him a solid Fantasy option yet again. Carter-Williams finished 17th among guards in Fantasy scoring last season, and can be safely considered a solid No. 2 option, worth targeting after the first few rounds are done on Draft Day.
