News: Robinson was picked up off of waivers by the 76ers in March. In 10 regular season games with the 76ers, he averaged 4.4 points (42% FG, 31% 3Pt, 50% FT), 0.4 three-pointers, 0.8 assists, 2.5 rebounds, and 0.3 steals in 15 minutes per game in 2014-15.
Impact: In his rookie year, Robinson didn't make a big impact, as he was waived by the Timberwolves and had a minimal bench role for the 76ers. Entering his sophomore year, Robinson will need to show improvement to garner more minutes in the NBA. For fantasy use, he is an afterthought until he secures a bigger role for himself.
News: Thompson averaged 8.8 points (41% FG, 40% 3Pt, 71% FT), 1.6 three-pointers, 1.2 assists, 2.8 rebounds, and 0.8 steals in 25 minutes per game through 71 games in 2014-15.
Impact: While failing to establish himself as a starter, Thompson showed flashes of his potential and is trending in the right direction for 2015-16. The 6-8 shooting guard could spend more time in the starting lineup if Jason Richardson departs in free agency. The 76ers Haven't locked in his non-guaranteed contract yet, but it's hard to imagine they wouldn't keep a young talent like Thompson on their barren roster.
News: Canaan was traded from the Rockets to the 76ers in February. In 22 regular season games with the 76ers, he averaged 12.6 points (38% FG, 36% 3Pt, 85% FT), 2.7 three-pointers, 3.1 assists, 2.5 rebounds, and 0.7 steals in 26 minutes per game.
Impact: Canaan benefited from a mid-season trade, as he logged far more minutes with the 76ers compared to the Rockets. With Tony Wroten (knee) out for the season after his January injury and Michael-Carter Williams traded in February, Canaan only had to compete with Ish Smith for the starting point guard spot. Heading into 2015-16, though, Canaan's future with the team is uncertain, as the team hasn't locked in his non-guaranteed contract yet. Even if he does return, a healthy Wroten will likely cut into Canaan's playing time, making his fantasy upside rather limited.
