Harris played great
Embiid was Embiid
And Ben is always the vital part of the team engine just not vital to scoring/shooting
Kind like the 3x long wings (Green, Hill, Korkmaz) with Embiid/Ben
We have depth so there’s a crap ton of variations to put out there.
Man this team is legit one player away like it’s always been. Embiid 1a/1b, Ben 3rd, get the 2nd banana and everything is sweet.
Problem is who do trade for that second banana? Need to keep Tobi IMO, feel like if we dont' it'll be a step back.
LeVert would have been nice. Bogdanović who is killing it on the Hawks. Buddy Hield?
Someone who broke out with their new team like Jordan Clarkson.
None of those players are true 2nd banana level players. Levert is inefficient, Hield is a already getting old, and no thanks. Bogdanovic would be interesting if he plays like he does now.
I'd say we could go after one of Garland/Sexton from Cleveland. Obviously if Ben **** the bed then he's gone (not making the ecf). Sorry I know you like him, but those are the facts, and it was clear that it was Morey's line of thinking when he nearly traded him for Harden.
Players we could go after for a package of HIll, Green, and one of Shake/Maxey (preference would be to keep Maxey).
CJ McCollum is my number 1 target.
If Ben **** the bed, use the Harden package to try and get Lillard
Terry Rozier (not a 2nd banana, but he's shown a lot this year)
Zach Lavine (might need to include Maxey though)
It's sad because I truly don't see another 2nd banana available other than Beal, but I doubt he leaves. Harden was our best shot. Lavine is still possible, but we'd have to overpay.
