Philadelphia 76ers guard Tyrese Maxey had a terrific second season in the league. He established himself as a rising star by averaging 17.5 points and 4.3 assists while shooting 48.5% from the floor and 42.7% from deep. He did so while adjusting to multiple roles during the season.
At the beginning of the 2021-22 season, Maxey had to be the point guard amid the Ben Simmons saga. He had to focus on making sure the offense was humming. He averaged 16.9 points and he shot 39% from deep during that period.
When James Harden arrived, Maxey move from point guard to shooting guard. It was a role he is more comfortable with since he just had to score and be dynamic. He averaged 18.7 points and shot 48% from deep after Harden arrived.
Maxey is back in the gym working with Chris Johnson on adding more variety to his 3-point shot. He is working on his 3-point shot off movement that would help him without the ball.

Knowing Maxey’s maniacal work ethic, this is a move that should help him in his third season. He is a very dependable player already, and the Sixers can count on him as they move forward with this core.
