LAS VEGAS - If one thing has been proved so far with the 76ers' participation in the Utah and Las Vegas summer leagues, once you get around the wild expectations surrounding top pick Ben Simmons, it's that the roster that will open the season is still in flux, and that just how rotations or starters may play out is nowhere close to being settled. When the team opens the season in late October, 15 players will make up the roster, and there very well could be someone out there who isn't on the team right now who will make up a part of that 15. But just in case a trade doesn't happen before then, let's take a look at how the roster might work out. Guards (5)

And Nerlens Noel, the Sixers' best player, suffered a game-ending cut to his right lower eyelid in the second quarter.

The former Episcopal Academy standout scored the go-ahead layup with 6 seconds left in the Hornets' 92-91 victory.

They were doing the jig all over Tobacco Road after the Irish beat Duke and North Carolina on consecutive nights.

Jerian Grant is Notre Dame's best player, but Vasturia is a solid contributor with a wonderful basketball IQ. "He's a special kid. He sees a pass ahead [of the play]
