You mean other than the $40mil investment?

I can’t think of many reasons to use this lineup (against the Sixers is probably the best use)

But man I am curious to see what that looks like

I think Miller has looked better than both.

Raptors should keep him

I'd rather have Powell instead of OG in that lineup. That being said our wings are trash. Siakam, Ibaka and Gasol are 3 of our 4 (5 depending on what u think of FVV) best players.

It's really a shame. I was hoping these guys would be able to perform to the point where they'd have hold some trade value but they probably couldn't even fetch us a second round pick at this point.

Yeah I think Powell is usually a better offensive player than OG and should be able to gaurd Tobias so I think it can work.

Especially since that lineup puts a lot of pressure on Lowry to create.

So OG, Norm and David all playing SG? Who the heck is playing SF. Is Nurse planning to give Pascal more time playing SF than PF? I don’t think this will end well if he does. We need to find a decent SF, I thought OG could be that but Nurse thinking he’s more of a SG has me worried.

I think that’s a very specific lineup. Likely just for the Sixers.

Seems like OG will start at the 3 most nights. Backup SF looks like Miller or McCaw with Siakam probably taking some minutes there too.


Judging from twitter Fred and Norm will be the ones starting at the 2 most of the time.

McCaw looked better in GS, just haven't seen much from him here so far. Not optimistic. I think they need TD to be able to play some minutes as primary ball handler given roster structure.
Its all Garbo's fault!

It won't be a regular thing. Nurse just doing his mad scientist thing. He's looking down the road to a potential philly matchup and realizing he is going to need size.

OG is our best perimeter defender and is the guy who can guard 1-5 keeping him on the floor during our Ultra big lineup keeps it flexible.

if og was healthy last playoffs, i don't think philly takes us to 7.
