Nik Stauskas: "It's time that the process is over. It's time that we start winning games"

By John Wetzel, Sports Talk Philly staff

It's been laughed at, praised, trending on twitter and everywhere in between. "The process" has become known to almost anyone who pays any attention at all to the NBA. 

Now that the goal of the process is coming to fruition with the Sixers cashing in their assets for talent, Nik Stauskas wants to begin a new goal: contention. 

In an interview with The Score, Stauskas said "It's time that the process is over, it's time that we start winning games, and start competing. That's really the main goal moving forward."

Stauskas played a limited role last year starting 27 out of 80 games and averaging 27 minutes per game. He was mostly used as a spot-up shooter. Moving forward, he might see those minutes shrink even more thanks to newly drafted Markelle Fultz and free agent signing JJ Redick. 

In the interview, Stauskas also dished on playing with Redick this upcoming season. "He's someone that I look up to. He was a guy that, as a young player in the league, he made strides every year and continuously got better. " Stauskas said. "It's someone who I feel I could learn a lot from."

Stauskas' comments about winning only solidify the sense that the years of tanking have come to an end. It's been a long offseason and it looks like the players are frothing at the mouth to get back on the court and the fans are fully behind them as evidenced by the record breaking season ticket sales. Needless to say, this year is going to be fun.
