Shabazz is actually really possession friendly. I'd be more concerned with us only having 1 guy on the perimeter that can shoot. It doesn't help that Jrue's outside shot is either feast or famine too.

Jrue Holiday
Evan Turner
Glenn Robinson (Little Dog)
Thad Young
Spencer Hawes

I just don't see the need for Muhammed at this point with ET here..
IMO (no facts) I think Robinson will be awesome with the 6ers. Supposedly unselfish and probably with a perimeter game close to his father's.

Bynum won't be signed by the 6ers b/c he had no per this season - JK

Little Dog went back to school. Plus I highly doubt Turner would be a deterrant to drafting anyone.

Sorry, I can't agree with Shabazz being possession friendly. Especially when 90% of his 16 possessions a game last year ended in a fieldgoal attempt.

Holiday
Turner
Young
Hickson
Hawes

We need a big and someone who can flat out score. I think JJ Hickson can be had for a reasonable contract, he's still young and can give us a physical presence down low. I don't think he'll ever be an elite big but he could compliment Hawes nicely. He wants out of Portland because he doesn't want to play Center full time and they have Aldrige at the 4. That gives us half of what we need.

don't get me wrong, he is looking to score but he is scoring in the flow of offense, on transition and off of garbage. He isn't handling the ball a ton, pretending to be a pg, or isoing his man. Jrue and reke pound the ball, which I find much more damaging to offensive continuity.

Atlanta is looking at S&T scenarios for Josh Smith. I wonder if Bynum is on their radar?

I didn't say he was ball dominant, I just said he was a possession eater. Ideally, you want Shabazz getting 16-18 possessions a night. Jrue and Tyreke usually take up 35+ between them. How the hell can you have all three playing together at the same time? One of them (Tyreke) should be coming off the bench. And being that he's useless shooting the ball and incapable of being a spacer, Tyreke should be running the point with the second unit.

Yea, I can't see Reke coming to be our 6th man. Plus he's likely gonna command 8-9 million at the lowest a year, which would be foolish to pay a guy for that role.

Another guy I'd like to see us grab if cheap enough is Dejuan Blair. Sure he's undersized, but whenever he gets minutes, he produces. I wouldn't mid adding a junkyard dog type of big who can dominate the glass.

Fair enough. We agree that you can't have the 3 of them on the floor for, well, 2 different but valid reasons. We've been stuck in the same position forever you can't have more than 1 player on the perimeter that can't shoot consistently and need the ball to score. See every sixers team since Iverson. God that little bastard made up for a lot.

To me, bringing in Tyreke is just a bad idea. He's not a winner, he's a poor defender, he can't shoot, and he's a tough fit in basically any line-up.

To me, Tyreke is destined to be a reasonably efficient stat stuffer on lottery teams for the rest of his career. He just doesn't fit well into a winning team as a starter.

Yea I think a lot of people are just looking for something to hitch there hopes on for a little while considering were pretty much out of options. I wouldn't necessarily hate it, but I would rather keep or cap space more flexible.

I'd rather see us trade up for someone like Shabazz than make a deal for Evans.

This may be the kind of draft where if the new GM really likes one of the top 2-4 players, trading up will be far easier than usual. Noel, McLemore, Porter or Oladipo, if the new GM wants them, might be obtainable depending on the teams drafting in those spots.

I like Tyreke but he doesn't fit, isn't really a winner and we might as well keep his cheaper less athletic counterpart in Turner for all that. Jrue needs another ballhandler but one that isn't useless without the ball. Turner for all his issue can atleast hit a 3 or two...just no consistantly. But better than Reke.

I also don't think coming "home" is the best for him anyway.

as for the topic?

i have no clue..we could either field the same lineup or be completely different.

What I could see is

Jrue
Turner
Draft Pick
Thad
Lol? (probably Hawes)

What I would want (and thus probably isn't even possible) is

Jrue
Mclemore (vai Stern Gift lol)
Turner
Thad
Pekovic

What I expect?

Jrue
JRich
Turner
Thad
Hawes.

I am kind of excited tho since we are in new teritory in terms of direction...I could see a lot of moves if only because the GM wants to make a splash.

Jrich wont even be ready till january next year. No way the new GM stands pat and puts that dog crap lineup out there next year. They need something new or keep Bynum because if they do nothing the owners wont be happy with no tickets sold.

If we can sign Tyreke Evans, Turner is expendable.

I wonder if Turner, Jrich and a pick swap could get it done?

Jrue
Tyreke Evans
Josh Smith
Hawes
Bynum

6th- Thad

I don't want to sign any big money free agents this offseason. Stick to the remaining contracts we have unless Thad, Hawes or Turner could generate a lotto pick or move us higher. The whole plan is to stink. Signing these borderline all stars will bring us back to the Brand/Iggy era again. Who cares if we do not end up 1 2014. Top 5 can potentially still get us a franchise stud. This has to be done.
