The Brooklyn Nets play a preseason game against the Philadelphia 76ers today, who under the careful eye of GM Sam Hinkie have amassed a seemingly random collection of basketball talent in an attempt to tank for a high draft pick unparalleled perhaps in NBA history. Most of their 20-man training camp roster is comprised of fringe NBA players and injured high draft picks.

To know the 76ers roster is a true test of a hardcore NBA fan, so here’s a little bit of trivia to test that knowledge. There are 20 names below. Some of them are members of the Philadelphia 76ers 2014-2015 training camp roster. Some of them are characters from American novelist William Faulkner. Can you spot which is which?
