JaVale Mcgee sweepstakes:
Which team will fit him most?
Warriors, Bulls, Raptors, Spurs, Clippers, Mavs, Nets and Heat.
My pick would be Bulls (doesnt have a backup center)
2nd place Clippers (he'll fit well in the LOB city)
3rd place Heat (they're catching up and could snag Whiteside starting position)
4th place Spurs (could learn from one of the best bigman Tim Ducan and starts)
5th place Nets (need a backup big so they could start Plumlee and Lopez)
Spurs would be my choice. no big backup behind splitter
He wouldn't start over Whiteside

Sixers hang up laughing.
Sixers take a risk and say no deal.
@ sixers hang up laughing. that is why the 76ers will remain the laughing stock of the league. you're going to be "rebuilding" for the next 10 years.
Yeahhh, got to agree with knickerbocker. So you think the sixers hang up the phone laughing because a mid 1st rounder and a player with a history of injuries, little basketball experience and zero professional experience is FAR superior to Cousins, who 24, averages 23.4pts, 12rb, 3.3 asst, 1.7blocks, 1.5steals and has a PER of 24.27.well, apparently embiid is guarenteed to be the next wilt chamberlain. or at worst an olajuwon because otherwise laughing at that proposition makes no sense.
Cousins is a cancer. Want no part of him in our clubhouse.
I think its the other way, he probably wants no part of your "clubhouse" and your horrible ownership.
Really critical of the teams ownership that's ahead of yours in the standings. tankers
The knicks wouldn't turn down a chance at cousins.
1. Knicks have nothing to offer for cousins except their pick. They are talentless and depleted.
2. Sixers suck, but have a future. Knicks suck worse, and all they have are scrubs and an aging star on the wrong side of 30 with bad knees and a huge contract. hen was the last time just being in "NY" was enough to get talent and when a championship. 46 years ago. good luck. I'd rather be a sixer fan with a bright future ahead.
The Knicks have one bad year. The sixers haven't been relevant in years. The route heinke is taking the sixers will never be successful. Don't kid yourself thinking anything different.
The knicks will be relevant way before the 76ers. the knicks are in win now mode and NYC is a destination. The city of Philly is trash compared to NYC. next season the knicks will have at least 3 star players on their team while 76ers will have nothing but unproven rookies.
Assuming the Knicks are going to have three stars is a little premature although we can only hope, I don't think a solid rebuild plan definitely has to be all around stars. and the sixers have enough picks to trade for a star who is no longer happy on their team, the carter Williams trade was flat out bad IMO but they definitely have some assets, to the original post if sixers could trade embiid and some amount of picks for cousins they would be stupid not too.
Sixers keep trading away their future. When your motto for over 5 years is maybe next year, your team is a failing one.

Could be a sign and trade.

So Minnesota gets Embiid for Muhammad and Philly is trading Embiid and the Miami 1st for FREE AGENT Aldridge. Honestly, why are you wasting people's time with this?
Sixers say NO. horrible
If u said if sixers trade noel and heat pick for lamarcus then I can c that possibly happening. Maybe.

76ers / Magic
draft day trade. This only works if the magic move up to #4(currently #5, only need to jump up one spot with the ping pong balls) and the Lakers drop to #6(currently #4, a jump 2 spots back). This is all very possible. If this happens, sixers get Lakers #6 pick this year.
76ers trade pick #6 and pick #15(miamis pick) to Orlando for pick #4.
Heres why I think this is a good trade for both teams: Orlando, in everyones mock seems to have Stanley Johnson as a perfect fit for them. I think he will still be available at #6. Magic don't need mudiay or Russell, and sixers actually could use both of them. Orlando gains pick #15 and still gets there man in Johnson.
Sixers sacrifice miamis pick to move up 2 spots and draft the backcourt of their future, Russell and Mudiay. Have Mudiay at the point and Russell as the 2 guard. Both are 6'5" and have skill sets that complement each other perfectly. Russell has an incredible jumper, even beyond the 3 point line. Perfect fit together.
PG: Mudiay, Wroten, P.Jackson, Canaan
SG: Russell, Wroten, McCrae
SF: Covington, Grant , Saric
PF: Noel, Saric, Robinson
C: Embiid, Noel, Sims
Plus, 76ers still have the strong possiblility of getting OKC;s #1(19-21) this year and 5 #2's.
Orlando can't move up one spot to 4. Only to a top 3 spot.
Orlando can move to #4 and lakers to ##6 if Orlando finishes with a worse record. both teams currently have 42 losses, and lakers have a lot of remaining games left against very poor teams. with 24 games left, lakers could have a better record then Orlando. if this happens, my scenario can work.
Magic are better off targeting Towns, Turner or Porzingis depending where they land in the draft they won't let harris go for nothing and they can play Gordon at sf. A Pf who can stretch the floor and rim protect should be their target.
Sixers say no
I actually was contemplating this as well. While I don't think Russell will be a great point guard I could see him at the shooting guard. Mudiay and Russell would be young and raw but could be really solid. That's a hell of a draft. Again Lakers would need to go on even more of a streak to reach the sixth spot though.
I still like mudiay and grant over mudiay and russell.
And I like it when good players say they want to play for a specific team. Like when he said he wants the sixers to draft him so can play with our future system and his younger bro jerami.
the magic won't get towns at 4, and turner or porzingis will definitely be there at #6, so your sceneiro works even better for his trade to be a success for both teams.'ll even through in orlandos own #2 in the deal which the sixers currently have.
I did say depending on where they land, as the magic could end up moving up if we learnt anything from the Cavs is the lottery is not set in stone. My point was not about getting towns it was that a Pf that rim protects and stretches the floor is better suited then Johnson for the magic and theirs 3 players in the lottery that fit description.

Sixers 1st round draft
Sixers 1st- emmanual mudiay
Heat 1st- jerian grant
Trade thunder 1st and two of our latest 2nd round picks to get bobby portis
Mudiays a solid pick. Grant might be a repeat with wroten and mudiay already at the point. Might just try to package thunder, miamis, and lakers( most likely next season) to move back I intot he top five. That be incredible to get another elite talent to go with mudiay and Embiid and noel. But it's got to be the right guy. Not sure who that is right now. Maybe Russell as I heard recently.
What if the sixers trade for pg13 but still get mudiay
Well Paul George would be awesome. If healthy. After that leg injury I can't take a risk on him, so the price can't be too high. Must be a lower risk high reward trade. But I know a lineup of
(Durant next offseason),
Now that looks scary and actually works out time wise. If they play the contracts right they should be able to offer Durant a Max deal in 2016. We can offer him a higher upside thunder like team with the benefit of being in the east not west. If I was Durant I'd consider that. Assuming Embiid and the prospect turn out to be for real.
Durant would probably have 76ers on the lowest 5 destinations in the league there doing the right thing going to have to develop some talent in house just need to stop trading it away for future draft picks
I'm assuming the Sixers plan works really well. Like Embiid is a beast next year and mudiay and Russell are a perfect pairing. O and noel and Embiid can play together at the same time.
If those all work out. Philadelphia would jump up much higher on Durants desired location list. Right now it's hard for me to think that anyone can look at the Sixers as a destination to go in 2015. But by 2016 that all might change depending on this years draft and Embiids potential continuing to rise.
I'm not denying those players all have a lot of potential but russel and mudiay embiiid all are entering there first year in the league and therefore will play as rookies do with potential and a lot of mistakes he's not going to leave the thunder with the veteran team he has around him for another small market team with a bunch of young guys who will as all rookies do need time to develop that's not going to happen in one season
I can see your point for sure. Young player usually don't get a start in this league though. All those guy will have a full season under their belt after next year. And they could have a few breakout stars in their first season like Embiid and mudiay. It might be enough with saric coming over in 2016 as well. They could have an interesting enough team for him.

Miami Heat Sign Javale McGee
That's actually a pretty slow but nasty team. Very tall
28 Feb 2015 22:32:43
Sixers draft 1st round plans:
Our 1st- deangelo russell
Heat 1st- jerian grant
Trade saric and sims to get bobby portis and 2nd round pick
Thunder 1st- Trey Lyles
I don't think there's a star potential player in anyone of those guys. I need more of a risk with our first pick. Mudiay I think would be best. Good news is he might fall too. Hasn't pkayed in so long people might have forgotten he was the concensious number two pick behind okafor for the begining of the season. Then he stopped playing and all of a sudden has dropped possibly out of the top four.
Russel on the other hand was a project late first rounder and even though his play has been excellent I just can't ignore that. How can a guy a late first jump to a top three pick in half a season??
So i'm going to take risks and make trades so I get at least two potential stars in this draft. I want mudiay and Stanley Johnson if possible. Johnson would require a trade of probably Miami pick and okc pick.
^^^ there isn't a single mock draft with him outside the top 4. almost all have him at 2, so not really sure where youve gotten any of that information
If you look at college preseason mocks he was a late first rounder. Of course I was also reminded earlier that Embiid, who I love, wasn't a projected top pick and played into the spot.
I just feel Embiid had elite skills. And given his short time in the game you could see him developing a ton more. He is a natural.
Russel though I don't see any elite qualities in him. He's slow. average dribbler. Can shoot but he uses his height a lot which is nice in college but the NBA guards will be able to match him. Not the best passer either. Either way I don't hate him. I think he's a top 7 or so pick. Just doesn't have an elite skill set yet. Might deveope more as the season goes on.
28 Feb 2015 15:49:10
Sixers get DeMarcus Cousins , Wilson Chandler and Gary Harris
Kings get Ty Lawson and Joel Embiid
Nuggets get OKC pick , Miami pick , Darren Collison
This seems to be a bit of a "force fit". sixers say no. not that the value isn't worth it, timing is just wrong to bring cousins over to buy into the player development and rebuild. you can have embiid and noel wrapped up for 3 years for the price of 1 year of cousins. just doesn't make sense.
Sixers say hell no. Two 1st round picks plus embiid for cousins and two crappy players is a hell no. Just forget about cousins going to philly because it ain't happening. Trade him to the lakers or knicks that's more believable.
Hahaha what in the world has embiid done to warrant all this holier than thou nonsense? he is NOT olajowon. You get a lottery draft pick in harris, wilson chandler which is a very solid player. AND a top 2 center that has actually played a minute in the league. simmer down with this embiid is the best prospect ever. So was oden, howd that turn out?
Pizza. Honestly since your not from here you may not have seen any of his practices. He's actually an above average to excellent shooter and his body has actually gotten even bigger. Not fatter as some reports may have said. He's about 270 right now and its all muscle. Freaky really. Sixers got to let his body adjust to all This new muscle before he plays. Three years ago he weighed maybe 200 pounds. He looks like a natural " a guy who doesn't need any training". A freak big that the NBA hasn't seen for a while. Everything he tries he can do.
That's why we don't want to trade him. Mostly how fast he's deveoped. Most guys don't get this good practicing there entire careers. not to mention he's in a 7 foot 270 body which is rare on its own.
Oden is oden. Embiid is much better than oden obviously. Everyone should just stop comparing people to others because nobody is the same. Oden was the 1st pick because blazers r f in stupid and could have gotten durant who went 2nd overall
And embiid doesn't have to be olojuwon to be a great player.
28 Feb 2015 04:36:45
1. KEEP Nerlens Noel. 14 pts, 13 rebs, 3 blks, 2 stls tonight in win vs Wiz. Starting to put groups of good games together.
2. KEEP Joel Embiid. This guy is the real deal. Paired with Noel, awesome rim protection, and he really does have post moves like Olajiwoun. He's going to be an AllStar.
3. Find some way to get Saric over for next year. He's a stud at 6'10". Outstanding passer, solid shooter, always in the right place at the right time.
4. Draft DeAngelo Russell. Whoever thinks he's going to be a bust, I just don't get it. NBA execs love him, and he can handle the ball, shoot the 3, and is an incredible passer.
5. Package Miami's #1(12-16), and OKC's #1(19-21) to move up and pick Hezonja(possibly to Utah, Bos, Indy, Det). He can light it up, and can play surprisingly good "D".
C: Embiid, Noel, Sims
PF: Noel, Saric, T.Robinson
SF: Covington, Saric, Grant
SG: Hezonja, McCrae, Rusell, Wroten,
PG: Russell, Canaan, P.Jackson, Wroten
Plus, still have 5 second round picks to work with(Orlando's and Denver's having some value, both in the #35-37 range. Also have Lakers #1 next year, only 1-3 protected. May luck out and have that pick fall to us at #6 or 7 this year. If that happens, draft Hezonja with LA's pick, Kaminsky with Miami's pick, and Grant, Lyles, Wright, Dunn or Portis with OKC's pick.
Saric is slow at 3, weak at 4. I think he should play one more year in Europe.
Sounds great. But philly gm will trade everyone away looking for the next best thing. I'm from philly. They won't win until heinke is gone. Sorry
I like what u said about sixers plans but i'm just not liking deangelo russell. I like mudiay and jerian. i'm just iffey on ohio st players
Go 76ers. as a HUGE sixers fan for 30 years, I can understand the uneasiness with an ohio state guard(see evan "stomach" turner). But, imo, Russell is just a perfect fit. Embiid and Russell will be awesome together.
I am a Turkish basketball fan and living in Istanbul where Saric's team, Anadolu Efes, is located in. I don't know but some fans are overrating him. He isn't even the best power forward in Turkish Basketball League. Fenerbahce's Nemanja Bjelica, 25, is the best 4, both in Turkey and Europe, whose rights belong to Timberwolves. I mean, first he should be the best PF in Europe before playing in NBA, like Mirotic. That's why I said he should play one more year in Europe in order to have more polished game and NBA-ready body.
Im not saying that your wrong. Maybe russell will be really good but I just don't c it yet. Who knows until it happens. Maybe sixers will draft russell and mudiay/or jerian.
sixers pick Russell with their own pick and Jerian Grant with the Miami pick(11-16). I could see that developing into a exciting young backcourt.
I like it, jvoug. Especially keeping Noel and Joel. They will be the cornerstones for years. We can add Russell or Stanley Johnson early. And Portis or Kaminsky later. Next year 2-3 more first round picks. So, do not despair, faithful. There will come a point at which Hinkie will decide it's time to let it run. I think that time will be midway through next season. And in 2016-17 we will be a solid contender. Then we'll start looking to sign free agents.
I'd rather have mudiay then Russell. I need star potential and explosiveness. Russel just lacks the It factor from what I've seen. He uses his height a lot and in the NBA that just won't be there anymore. ( either the other guards are tall like him or much more athletic) Granted only seen the games they show on normal tv. Mudiay I haven't seen anything but highlights and low lights in YouTube clips. But I like a lot of what I've seen. Explosiveness for sure and he's the better shot creator which I think the Sixers could use even with noel playing better and joel coming back next year. Soi love your ideas but would like mudiay over russel for now. Wouldn't mind Stanley Johnson or a small forward if we move up either so that's fine with the euro there too.
What about sixers trade sims and saric for bobby portis and a 2nd round pick. he's going to be a stud in the nba. i'm tellin u he's going to be a steal and can possibly be the best big man in this years draft. And also draft russell and jerian. that's going to be our future right there. Then mcrae comes to philly to split time with covington at small forward.
I do like how russell is a lefty.
U don't want stanley. Trust me on that. In the very beginning of the season I wanted him. But now I don't c him fitting in with us and our future plans. And don't forget about jordan mcrae. He has some serious potential and will be a great small forward for us.
But let's be honest. I really think the sixers will pass on russell and get mudiay.
I do believe Embiid wasn't a projected lottery pick in the beginning of last years college basketball season but he made the jump to the top of the lottery. we can agree to disagree on either russell or mudiay, but keeping noel and embiid is crucial.
Jvoug. That true with Embiid as well your right. I just think Russell doesn't have anything he does amazing. Looks solid but a top pick for me has to be special. Russel does have game of course. He's no scrub. But I also take notice of his team. They're unranked and I find that unusal. If they have a top three player in this years draft, which should mean they have an elite player, why are they so underrated by scouts. It does men's something for sure.
Go Sixers. I would only go Stanley at 7 or later. That's why I think it's possible to move up to get him. He's got some talent but probably a specialist for now. And I don't actually count macree until he's here. Same thing with saric. I got to see them actually playing here before their on the roster. even if that's the case. Johnson can play shooting guard as well. He's a development guy for now though.
Mudiay is riding the bench in China -stuck behind Will Bynum, f'chrissakes.
Boy howdie. He's riding the bench because he got injured and given the super short season and the fact they can only have. Two foreign guys on the roster at a time they choose to sign will Bynum to replace him rather then wait out the injury to mudiay. That's just how it work over there. It wasn't even a controversy because of the rules there.
But before he left he passed all the eye tests. Really quick. Really fast. And has an elite athletism you don't usually see in guard. You could project him to be a Westbrook type of player. I'm not going that far yet because frankly he's only 19.
Boy howdie. I actually just saw that your right. He's officially playing again for that team in China. Coming off the bench. Putting up some good numbers but I wanted to add that in there since I thought he was done for the season overthere.
I'm ok with that. But I'd wait and draft the Grant kid from ND. I want two big guards out of this draft that can both score, shoot and handle the ball.
Saric still overseas
Veteran point guard
Veteran banger inside
I think a backcourt of Russell AND Mudiay would be awesome. We take one of the two with our pick, and trade the lakers pick and OKCs pick for the rights to draft the other. Hinkie will do something on draft day, why not get his backcourt set. And we still have Miami's #1!
27 Feb 2015 14:16:55
since everyone is trading Embiid & Cousins
DEN get: Nik Stauskus, OKC 2015 1st DP (via 76ers) & MIA 2015 1st DP (via 76ers)
Draft: Justice Winslow (6th) & Isiah Taylor (16th)
SAC get: Ty Lawson, Joel Embiid, & Wilson Chandler
Draft: Myles Turner (7th)
PHI get: Demarcus Cousins & Rudy Gay
Draft: D'Angelo Russell (2nd)
There is no way the sixers give up 2 1st Round Draft picks with Joel for Cousins and Washed up Ridy Gay this is awful the sixers could of had cousins over Noel two years ago but they turned doen the offer for Jrue
Ok now that's a good trade that involves embiid. But I think kings would want a late 1st round pick OR two 2nd round picks. Then it will be a done deal.
And I do think that something like this will probably happen
LOL you think Gay is washed up? and Cousins is the best center in the game right now. Embiid proved nothing. 76ers fans need to realize your players proved nothing and can't win, if you have the chance to get a super star center and a borderline all star wing, you take it.
No way the kings offered cousins for jrue holiday, show me the source, bc that is BS.
This trade is actually very close at least for Sixers. We're losing a lot. Joel might even be better then cousins all by himself but we're not sure yet. This would certiainly jump start the rebuild.
However, given the money cousins is going to make. Sixers are giving too much. Embiid maybe. But another two first rounders. Seems too costly to take on a high contract. So I think I'd say no at this point.
The current trend of nba salaries keeps increasing, so if embiid becomes nearly as good as Cousins, let's say within the next few years, his contract will be even more expensive. cousins is proven and effective, embiid has literally proven nothing.
I think the main reason is timing. Cousins will be making a ton much sooner then Embiid. That hurt the flexibility of a rebuilding team. if Embiid is as good as cousins is it take four years for him to make the huge salaries. Mean while during that time you can sign a super free agent to compliment him.
However if you get cousins there's no room for free agent additions. That's a similar problem the Kings are facing now. Got a great core in cousins. But can't build around him due to cap and other issues. Rudy gay unfortunately hasn't panned out as hoped. That's compounding this problem. Sixers want three cousins on their rookie deals.
That's what this tanking process is all about. not sure it will work but that's where it is and why I say no to cousins.
^that is why you're crazy
Celtics for life. Well it's a plan at least. That's something. I'm not saying that it's my favorite plan but its what there shooting for. At least get two supers to build around and then sign a super free agent to put them over the top. Imagine thunder except add James harden back onto the team. That's what they want.
26 Feb 2015 20:09:25
Wolves should try to contend next season
Wolves - Miami deal
Wolves get Luol Deng and 2nd rd pick
Heat get Nikola Pekovic and Chase Budinger
Wolves - Nets
Wolves get Joe Johnson
Nets get Anthony Bennett and Kevin Martin
- sign DeAndre Jordan
- sign Kevin Garnett one more year
- draft Karl Towns
R. Rubio / Z. Lavine / veteran
J. Johnson / G. Robinson III / FA
A. Wiggins / S. Muhammad
K. Garnett / K. Towns / A. Payne
D. Jordan / G. Dieng
Where's luol deng and no way towns would be behind an even more washed up KG
Jordan's not signing in Minne
25 Feb 2015 17:14:45
Bulls get- Chalmers and Ennis
Heat get- Hinrich, Moore, and a 2nd
Bulls need a point guard with Rose out and chalmers may not be the best point guard but he is a solid one. Hinrich is having by far the worst season of his career.
The heat need to develop Napier so getting Hinrich is good as he can be used as either a mentor or a trade asset to get a backup big with Bosh out. The 2nd is a nice sweetener as well.
23 Feb 2015 14:13:28
Trade Lakers pick in 2016 (Top 3 Protected) for Olidipo
Sixers Draft: Munday (3)
Devon Booker (Heat Pick)
Rondae Hollis Jefferson (Thunder Pick)
Magic pass, olapido would be a Top 3 pick this year and next.
We could take a bad contract back from them
Maybe lakers pick and two 2nd rounders
I would trade the lakers pick(only 1-3 protected next year) , and pick #35 and #38 this year fo oidipo and take back fryes contract. I would draft Russell, not mudiay to play in the backcourt with olidipo. Both guys can handle the ball, Russell is an amazing passer, and both can shoot(joel embiid will now be a force). why draft mudaiy and hope in 3 years he develops a jump shot?
Orlando won't part with Oladipo he's a key part of their future and looks like him and Payton could form a nice duo they are more likely to part with Harris who jus doesn't fit their style.
There's too much uncertainty with the Laker's pick. The protection also takes out a good chance that it will be for a franchise superstar. The Magic aren't giving up a team cornerstone for such a risky proposition.
23 Feb 2015 03:44:30
here's an interesting scenario that I think could happen for the sixers:
assuming this lakers pick does not cash in for the sixers this season:
sixers trade: Lakers pick and robert covington
pistons trade: brandon jennings
i can see this as a possibility because pistons don't really have a small forward currently, and they already have reggie Jackson who could replace jennings
76ers do this because they will be able to bring dario saric to the nba next season and need a replacement for Mcw
obviously, question would be then who would the sixers pick in the draft, I really see De'Angelo russle as a shooting guard, I have seen scouts compate russle to being almost of the caliber of james harden
yes Russle can handle the ball but also he can play off the ball very well, I think he and jennings would be able to co-exist together rather nicely
then with the other 2 possible first round picks, I would like any effective sg and any effective pf:
Sg: Devin Booker: he could be taken earlier but I would like the sixers to draft him with the heat's pick (#11-#30), whenever that might be, he can shoot lights out at times, which is a need of the sixers right now
pf:rakeem christmas: solid player, good post up game, something the sixers also need right now, would be a good fit when embiid is not on the floor since embiid is also a good post up player
mbah a moute
Ur method will lead the sixers to nowhere. Sixers r rebuilding by draft picks.
Sixers have no interest in winning next year either, why would they give up what will most likely be a top 10 pick in the draft in 2016 for Brandon Jennings?
I don't like it. Not enough elite talent to win. Jenning isn't worth a possible top five pick. Covingtons better then him to be honest.
Terrible trade for sixers. just horrible
I don't like the trade either from both parties involved. Covington is at best a bench player on a good team. His defense to offense stats are not very good and this is his first year of posting anything good on a very bad team. Jennings can get you more then Covington, but not a player and a High first round pick.
22 Feb 2015 02:04:34
76ers / Magic
Draft day trade:
76ers trade lakers 2016 #1 (only 1-3 protected next year, very slim chance it conveys this year to sixers), Covington, and Miami's #1(11-15) for olidipo and frye.
Magic get a high lottery pick next year, another #1(possibly late lottery) in this years draft, and Covington. Plus they rid themselves of fryes horrible contract for 3 years(still owed $23million over the next 3 years).
Sixers get guard to pair with either Russell or Mudiay, whoever they pick. Draft Kaminsky or Portis with OKC's #1 this year.
PG: Russell or Mudiay, Canaan, Wroten
SG: Olidipo, Wroten, McCrae
PF: Noel, Saric, Kaminsky, Frye
C: Embiid, Sims, Noel
I love olidipo but your giving magic too much for olidipo amd frye
This is a lot for olidipo. Take on a terrible contract with three full year left. And give up a bunch of picks. Sixers probably would do the lakers pick and Covington. That's enough. Maybe through in a second rounder.
How about lakers #1 in 2016, Covington or Wroten(magic choice), and Magics #2 back(currently #35) for olidipo and fryes bad contract?
No don't trade lakers pick for olidipo. If they choose to trade the lakers pick I would rather have them trade it for a guy who is a veteran who is a leader for his team on the court and who puts up numbers.
With running your offense through Embiid next year, it is an absolute MUST that you have a pg who can run the pick and roll. To do that, your point guard HAS TO be able to knock down jump shots. This is basketball 101. Mudiay cannot do this, Russell(and olidipo) can. Embiid will flourish with a backcourt of Russell and Olidipo.
Sixers need to pass on Oladipo. Why all the love? He's pedestrian. And they cannot trade Covington. He's their best (maybe only) shooter and he's signed through '17-'18 at a total of just over $3M.
Its just a tough call to make.
Mudiay has time to work on his jump shot especially with having the help of brett brown.
Mudiay is riding a Chinese bench. He will be a bust.
I don't think mudiay is going to be a bust but it's a little concerning that will bynums numbers are better as his replacement rn

Nate Robinson and Tayshaun Prince (if bought out) to Clippers

Ray is going to retire

My sixers draft plans:
with our 1st- we draft emmanuel mudiay to replace mcw
I totally doubt sixers will get lakers pick this year but if they do then they draft- stanley johnson
Heat 1st- we get jerian grant. If he gets drafted before heat pick then we will trade the heat pick and two late 2nd rounders to get him.
Okc 1st- we get andrew harrison
Magic 2nd round pick- we get aaron harrison
Denvers 2nd rounder- we get brandon dawson
Why would you draft mudiay and then trade up to get his backup grants going to play pg you know that right
No grant is going to play shooting guard do u know that.
Oh my bad someone should inform the experts that they have him scouted as pure pg but he's playing sg next year
I don't give a sh where they say his position is. He is a shooting guard and if he gets drafted by sixers then he will play shooting guard for us.
So three point guards in the 1st round?

With Bosh out for season the Heat should bring Beasley back and sign Thomas Robinson after he is bought out
I think Beasely got his career ruined he averaged 19 ppg as a starter and never saw those minutes again. Great player
Because he got high because he got high because he got high la di da da da

I'm still baffled by the return the 76ers got for MCW
Im shocked about the return we got for mcw. But I think its obvious now that sixers r going to draft emmanuel mudiay.
Wish pistons could have traded for Mo Harkless instead of Prince.
^It was a great return, but Mudiay's stock is falling. Expect Russell to be the pick.
I don't expect russell to be a sixer and never will. Sixers want mudiay and they will get him period. Its just going to happen.
What is the 76ers actual plan? I am so lost by these moves.

the suns did good this year at the deadline
THEN there's THE PISTONS
they traded singler, jerebko, Augustin, datome and 2 future 2nd round picks to get Jackson and prince which I like both deals for the pistons except trading draft picks
So in all the Suns
I don't know about the move of the Bucks well cannot blame them , they secure a long term PG in MCW losing a franchise player type Brandon Knight who is a free agent next season.
Bucks roster now
think can still contend for a playoff spot in the west.
what now Suns fans? how good did your team does?
Brandon Knight was having a heck of a year statistically, but there were still signs that he was not the long term answer. He's better than MCW right now, but I don't know that we'll be saying that 10 years from now.
Keep in mind that MCW is a little similar to their coach JKidd when he came into the league. A triple double threat that didn't shoot well from the perimeter and had a penchant for turnovers. In Kidd's first two years, he put up .272 and .336 numbers from 3, and averaged 3.2 and 4.0 turnovers a game. If anyone is going to be able to make MCW a star, it's Kidd.
As for the Suns, worse today, better off two years from now.
Suns must be banking on signing knight long term right?
Hard to say what the thinking was in Suns Mgt. other than to get what they could when Dragic shocked nealry everyone in the city. Worst thng was moving that Lakers picks to Philly. Yeah, Suns look to add another year or two onto any "playoff contetion" hopes. Wasvgood to get rid of Thomas. someone they shouldn't have signed in the first place.
19 Feb 2015 18:36:03

- sign A.Blatche and N.Robinson (1-year, min.)
Dragic - Robinson - Napier
Wade - Johnson - zDragic
Deng - Green - Ennis
Bosh - Haslem - Williams
Whiteside - Blatche - (McRoberts)
19 Feb 2015 23:26:57
Chalmers was not in the trade
19 Feb 2015 17:38:24
If Miami gets Dragic, and if OKC gets Lopez,
I'd love to see this deal go down:
Thunder get Mario Chalmers and Shawne Williams
Miami gets Jeremy Lamb and Perry Jones III
Jones is going to the Nets in Lopez deal, and Dragic isn't likely to get moved. However Cole is possibly heading to OKC for either Lamb and second round pick or Smith, Jerrett, and second round pick
