Bynum may not re-sign, hell they may not want to re-sign him the way things have gone.

The problem with Turner is he's a player who needs the ball in his hands a lot to be effective, as he's not good off of the ball due to his lack of a spotup game. And he's not a player who's going to have a huge impact on the offence when he's being used a ton in sets. He's a good player, but he's not a difference maker, and I dont know if you want him to be one of your primary offensive weapons as a good team as again, he's not fantastic at anything, just average or good.

He's a lot like Derozan in that he's a midrange type of player, but he's a better creator and passer, whereas Derozan is a better slasher. I think their midrange jumpers are comparable, but both need to develop a spot up 3 point shoot to take their games to the next level.

They are indeed a lot alike.... interesting to see if either can elevate their games to be significantly more than just a decent young player with more potential and more than just an offensive-focused talent.

And the others they've added (Young, J-Rich, Wright) haven't panned out either. They went from a promissing young team to a complete mess.

What an awful draft class that was when you look and see Turner at 2 despite underperforming isn't anywhere near that bad a pick.

The only player from that entire draft to make an all-star squad so far is Paul George this year and he's a pretty "meh, I guess..." all-star.

PG is awesome... but yeah, kind of weak otherwise! Though Monroe, Cousiins... some pretty big frontcourt potential.

To make matters worse, Philly also has to send Orlando a future 1st round pick as part of the Bynum deal.

How quickly do you expect players to become all-stars? It doesn't usually happen overnight. I wouldn't call that draft class awful. There were a few awful picks in terms of order of selection, but it was a pretty typical draft in terms of talent. There will probably be 4 all-star level players: Wall, Cousins, George, and Monroe or Favours.

Similar to The MVP of West Hollywood's comments about the 2011 draft, you're making a judgement before the players are even off their rookie contracts. Too early, especially since some these guys are still only 22 y/o.

I dont think Philly was a promising young team as there wasnt a lot of room for improvement(being a treadmill 1st round team) due to the young guys that they had not having a ton of potential outside of Holiday. I really doubt Vucevic would have broken out with the way Collins uses his bigs, in that he'd be splitting minutes with Hawes and Young, whereas in Orlando he gets all of the minutes at C and is a big part of their offence. They were on the treadmill with Iggy as their main guy, and if they kept him, the likelyhood for Holiday breaking out would have been small as well, so at least they have that.

They made the right decision trading for Bynum. They acquired shooters like JRich, Young, and Wright to be the wing players that get the wide open 3s off of Holidays penetration or the attention that Bynum gets, but since Bynum has been out all year, all of those guys have struggled for the most part. If Bynum does return after the all star break, Philly could make a run for the playoffs, and be that team that no one wants to face since theyd have a very nice starting 5 and some nice shooters and Hawes off of the bench.

In terms of that draft class, I think there's a good mix of potential and players who will be the main guy or 1a's for their team in the future. This is my breakdown of the 2010 draft:

Franchise level players:

John Wall
DeMarcus Cousins

2nd tier level players(ie allstars who will be 2nd/3rd options on a really good team):

Greg Monroe
Paul George

Quality Starters(who could potentially be allstars for a year or two during their careers):

Larry Sanders
Derrick Favors
Greivas Vasquez
Eric Bledsoe

Good quality rotation players(who would start on a lot of teams, or come off of the bench but still play a big role for a winning team):

Evan Turner
Gordon Hayward
Ed Davis
Avery Bradley

Rotation players:

Patrick Patterson
Luke Babbitt
Kevin Seraphin
Avery Bradley
Quincy Pondexter
Landry Fields
Lance Stephenson

Busts(and guys who wont ever be consistent rotation guys, but guys who are at the end of the bench or out of the league in a few seasons who were high picks):

Wesley Johnson
Cole Aldrich
Xavier Henry
Cole Aldrich
