Philadelphia 76ers president Sam Hinkie is confident that draft picks Joel Embiid and Dario Saric will play key roles.

They'll just have to wait a few seasons.

Embiid is expected to miss the season because of a broken right foot. Saric is playing in Turkey for at least the next there seasons.

Hinkie credited Philly fans for their "patience and understanding" for another lean season where the best outcome would be a No. 1 draft pick and not a seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Outside of rookie of the year Michael Carter-Williams and veteran forward Thaddeus Young, the Sixers have few other credible players, and will likely stack the roster again with D-League castoffs and 10-day contract stopgaps.
