With what they have? You mean a bunch of overrated young role player who everyone in Philly is hoping will "develop".
Just like how we were two years ago.
With cap space and moveable assets. What do you think they'd prefer: A .500 team with cap space and moveable assets or a .500 team with bad contracts and no cap space.
They're clearly in rebuild mode while trying to compete. Amnestied Brand, traded Iggy. All good moves.
They are not in rebuild mode. They made the trade for Bynum to get better. They stated clearly that their team last year had maxed out what its potential was. So they made this trade to move forward.
They have maybe 8 million in cap space next year and that is without signing Bynum. If they sign him they have 0 cap space and this is their team.
Moveable assets? Like who?
It is funny how I hear the same thing over and over. OMG OMG they have young assets and cap space.
Cap space so they can sign more role players? Because unless you are Miami/NY/LA no one is signing with you who is a star in free agency. Cap space is so overrated unless you are a huge market its funny.
But by all means continue to have orgasms over cap space and young guys because we all know that is how the small market contenders got built not through the draft. Oh wait...
