It's safe to say that Al Horford hasn't quite lived up to the four-year, $109 million contract he signed last summer with the Philadelphia 76ers. The 33-year-old big man was expected to be the missing piece to the Sixers' championship piece.

Instead, Horford is struggling to fit in with the rest of the roster and is putting up his lowest season point total since his sophomore year in 2008-09. With the NBA season currently postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the Sixers are reportedly taking a look at how the five-time All-Star fits with the team.

According to Mike O'Connor of The Athletic, the Sixers are likely to put second-year pro Shake Milton in the starting lineup while sending Horford to the bench. As a 6-foot-5 shooting guard, Milton would directly take Horford's spot but instead, Philadelphia will likely go with a smaller lineup.

Milton has been one of the Sixers' best role players this season as the former SMU star has boosted his points per game from 4.4 as a rookie to 9.5 this season. Other than his points, Milton is also contributing 2.2 assists and 2.1 rebounds nightly while shooting 49.8 percent from the field and 45.3 percent from deep.

On the other hand, Horford, who has started 57 of the 60 games he has appeared in, is shooting a career-low 44.2 percent from the field and 33.7 percent from long distance.

As a team, Philadelphia has fallen short of the expectations of many this season. Prior to the season being suspended in March, the Sixers sat tied for fifth place in the Eastern Conference with a 39-26 record.
