76ers JSmoove To Philly This Summer?

WOW ... could you imagine a Iggy/Josh Smith duo? Just look how well the Sixers are playing now and you add Smith to the mix. Scarey team.

They'd be better off getting a PG seeing as they're gonna lose Andre Miller next off-season. Watch them make a play for both Elton Brand and Jose Calderon.

I wouldnt be surprised if BC pulled off a Jose for Thad Young and Dalembert move come this offseason. I said Iguodala before but right now there isnt a chance in hell we could get him for Calderon or whoever on our team besides Bosh the way hes playing. Thad Young has been extremely impressive this year and was BCs man in the draft who he was trying to trade up for.

I'd consider that deal. Dalembert is exactly what we need and I love Thad.

I'm sure not Philly does though.

Why not? Miller is gone this offseason and Jose is the most saught after available PG in the game. I bet theyd even consider TJ since Dalemberts contract doesnt look so nice(3 years left at like 11 mil a year)

Pretty good thought. You know, I would do that in a second. Philly is going to need a PG considering Miller is going to be a UFA after next season. And Dalembert doesn't want to be in Philadelphia anymore. And I'm sure Philly is not fond of his contract.

I think Thad Young is going to be a star in this league. Dalembert is going to be the C we need when Rasho becomes a FA. Question is, what to do with Bargs?

Let him be backup and pray he improved in the offseason so his value goes up so we can trade him(unless of course he magically turns into an Okur or Dirk type in the offseason). I was a huge Bargnani fan up til now and I'm starting to lose some faith. The guy just doesnt look like he wants it like he did last year, and hes still too out of control for my liking. No pet moves still, and his FG% is disgusting for a guy who mostly takes good shots. Good shooter my ass.

Doesn't Miller have another year left? Trade checker says he has 2. If he's gone this offseason, then ok, it's possibilty.

I just thought that after seeing their team come up with such a miraculous second half this year, I'd be surprised if they want to blow things up by losing their point guard, big man, and brightest prospect at once.

Though looking it over, they WOULD be scary if they got Jose and a big PF this summer. Jose, Iggy and Brand or Jamison or Smith with a good coach and a solid enough bench... that's an East contender. I want that team. : ( The divisional rival thing also has a factor.

I'm almost positive he has an opt out, and when asked if he wants to return to Philly he said he likes it on the west coast so there you go.

And I dont think its even possible they can get both(cap space problem), its one or the other unless LAC gets cheap and accepts like Louis Williams and a bunch of spare parts for Brand.
