76ers Sixers Are Getting Bold

The Sixers are getting aggressive with the Hawks in the pursuit of JSmoove. And if that deal falls through, are ready to do the same and acquire Brand from LA. Should certainly be interesting.

Once this deal is complete the Sixers could offer Josh Smith a full "Max" offer, almost insuring Atlanta passes on Smith. There is a remote chance the 76ers could get after Elton Brand as well, especially if Atlanta quickly makes a decision on matching Josh. The 76ers are in a tough spot because once they re-sign Andre Iguodala all of their cap space goes away, so it really has to be now for the 76ers if they want a key free agent. The Hawks do have the right to match any Josh Smith offer regardless of the cap, but if the Hawks, which are still embroiled in an ownership dispute with Steve Belkin, decide to match the deal, they will set in motion a series of future contract issues they cannot afford. The Hawks are refusing to comment on speculation and will have seven days to make a decision on whether to match any offers given to both Josh Smith and Josh Childress. Do not under estimate the Steve Belkin part of this equation, as he has been deliberately difficult on a lot of fronts trying to force a settlement with his former partners. The 76ers are certainly being bold in their pursuit of Josh Smith, it remains to be seen how effective that will be.

76ers Sixers going all out for Josh Smith or Brand

Brand is ideal for Philly. Pair him with Dalembert and they have a sick front court with excellent scoring, rebounding, shot blocking. Then they would just need a couple dudes that can shoot.

Geez, if they get Smith this becomes a must watch team immediately.

Smith, Young, Williams, Sammy, and Iggy all catching Dre Miller passes...that's top 5 of my League Pass rotation for sure right there.
