    You are agreeing with me. I simply said they didn't have any other options.

    Sixers trying to clean their hands now that BC is gone. :laugh:
    Where Do the Sixers Go From Here?

    1. Fultz wasn't going to workout if they didn't guarantee they were selecting him.

    2. You're really going to base your decision off of a 20 minute, half speed, workout?

    3. You don't trade for the #1 pick unless you absolutely know who you are going to pick.

    The hindsight on Tatum is just obnoxious at this point. The Sixers werent gonna draft him at 3 and they definitely werent gonna draft him at 1.

    If anyone was going to take Alt-Right Michael Beasley at 2 in this draft, it would be them. Good lord.

    Meanwhile the Lakers have leaked that they love half the first round. Magic is working overtime.

    I know everyone wants Lebron James and PG13 and rightfully so, but there are some other free agents that could make the Sixers better.

    Avery Bradley
    Tyreke Evans
    Will Barton
    Thaddeus Young
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
    Wayne Ellington

    Maybe the half they love is the bottom half?

    This leak about how Colangelo went against other people in the Sixers front office about taking Fultz stinks to high heaven.

    I say that as someone who despises both of the Colangelo’s but the Sixers are trying to make him the scapegoat in case Fultz doesn’t work out.

    If Fultz doesn't pan out.. that will be a nasty setback unless they can get James or Leonard. Then it will be a huge opportunity squandered....

    Disconcerting that this guy is not even ready for summer league. Fultz must have the worst white blood cells a teenager has ever had....

    It is actually scary bc Dr. J publically came out with a no confidence vote for Fultz.....to me all indications are that the Sixers are engaging in damage control and they feel he might not be salvageable. I hope to hell this is not the case.....

    Hanlen has previously asked that guys not even play pickup for 3 Months if he's going to rebuild their shots. He wants everything done under his control. I don't know that he has in this case, but it would make an awful lot of sense.

    The fact that a prospect that was good enough to be selected 1st overall needs to have his shot rebuilt is mind-blowing to me.

    Fultz is going to be a star. I fully believe that.

    Also, have you gentlemen read the Griffin comments on the draft? Dropped some interesting tidbits on the Magic and Sixers.

    I was trying to find the quote lmao.

    Check back in like 20 minutes.

    Edit: Found it

    Did anyone hear on NBA Sirius radio David Griffin on the mock draft show? When they were talking about Orlando he mentioned how they need a point guard but Trae Young didn't fit their profile (I guess they have guys that used to be in Milwaukee who historically just draft the best athletes and then figure it out).

    He said Colin Sexton was a better fit for what they (Milwaukee now Orlando) did historically because he's a much better athlete than Trae Young. Anyway, then he tied it to the Sixers. He said Orlando and Philly may be a great fit trade wise. Basically the trade was something to the effect of #6 and Biyombo (who they are trying to salary dump) for #10, #26 and a second or two. He was less clear on exactly what the Sixers would give up. He said the Sixers were trying very hard (may have even said desperately) to move up because their was a player projected in the top 5 that they absolutely loved. And of course, he said there was a chance he fell to 6. This was the first time I had heard this. The show was on last night I believe but I heard a replay of it driving to work this morning.


    Here’s some stuff about the Sixers scouting Mudiay.

    I worked for the 76ers at the time, and Mudiay was a high-priority target for us. After the trade of Michael Carter-Williams midway through that previous season, we had a hole at point guard. We needed to know as much as we could about Mudiay to make the most informed decision possible, but circumstances were making that complicated.

    We did everything we could. We acquired the film of all of his games and watched them in painstaking detail. We recorded stats from that film. We compared his stats to other Americans who had played in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA), to get some sense of how his play measured up.

    And what we found concerned us. Mudiay seemed to be lacking a burst around the basket, so that even in the CBA, a league not known for its defense, he was not an efficient scorer. For a player with a shaky shot who had not displayed good touch away from the basket, poor finishing at the rim and a below-average rate of drawing fouls were major red flags. Further testing during his workouts only deepened those fears. Mudiay needed to be a rim attacker, but we feared he didn’t have the athleticism for it.

    Through three full NBA seasons, that analysis seems to have been correct. Mudiay has been one of the least efficient players in the NBA in each of those seasons. In particular, although he does take a high rate of shots at the basket, he has been a dreadful finisher. This past year is the first in which he made more than 50% of his shots at the basket.

    Interesting. Packaging 10 and 26 makes a lot of sense to me. This is probably the last high pick the Sixers will have for a while, might as well go for it. It raises the question obviously, of who they covet there. I can’t see them drafting a center or PG, so that would seem to rule out Ayton (obviously), Bamba, Young, and Sexton. Also, PF would seem a pretty weird choice given the way Dario has come along. Doesn’t really address their biggest need which is wing.

    So I think that leaves three names that they would feel they might need to trade up for. Mikal Bridges, MPJr, and (yikes), Doncic. I have seen Doncic going as low as 5 I think, and I could just see Brett watching him and thinking “there’s my Manu Ginobili!”

    MPJr has obvious appeal but the back has to be a concern. Do you trade up for the risk?

    Bridges ticks all the boxes, and while I haven’t seen a mock that has him going in the top 5, I have seen him going closer to 5 than 10.

    I've been thinking.
    I do not want Leonard from San Antonio.

    I could be wrong but he strikes me as the kind of player who could easily turn into a Turd.

    The NBA is filled with examples of players who were very good players who just went down the toilet.

    I wouldn't risk valuable players for him.
