The Philadelphia 76ers are five games into the 2021-22 season as they continue trying to jell together as a team amid the tough Ben Simmons situation. In order to do that, they have been relying on younger players to take on more responsibility.

The Sixers then made a decision on Friday that they have seen enough of those young players to keep them around a little bit longer.

Philadelphia announced that they will pick up the third-year team option on Tyrese Maxey as well as the fourth-year option on Matisse Thybulle for the 2022-23 season. They will both be looking to continue to grow under coach Doc Rivers and help the team on their championship path.

The Sixers will look to continue to grow as a team as Maxey takes over the team’s starting point guard spot as a 20-year old and Thybulle continues to be the defensive menace off the bench. They both have to continue to add to their games, but they have shown enough promise that this is a smart move for them going forward.
