    Let me stop you right there, the Sixers are not making the playoffs. They probably won't even be close.
    Our Sixers made some bold moves last night PhinsPhan. I am listening to 97.5 the Fan in Philly, and most of the reaction is positive. Sam Hinkie, the Sixer's new GM, knows it will take a few years to compete. I am ok dealing Jrue, with what we got back in return and we cleared up some cap space. I like the PG from Syracuse. I also like the Kazemi pick as well. The guy can really rebound and play D. We may only win 20 games this upcoming season, but we will be all set in 2014. I think Noel will show why many felt he could be the #1 pick. He just has to rest his knee and bulk up...I think he is only around 210 pounds. I also like his Kid and Play do!!!!

    GO SIXERS!!!

Probably should start an Nba free agency thread for the upcoming offseason. Lol
    And I can't say I'm real disappointed. They are finally enacting the mindset that you have to be bad before you are good because for many years they were content with being a 7-8 seed and losing in the first round.

    I could see Toronto getting in there, but don't forget about the Wizards. I know they've been a punch line for many years, but they finally have a nice foundation. With Wall, Beal, and now Porter, they have some nice players. Something people forget is that once Wall came back last year, they were basically a .500 team.

    Once free agency starts I'll probably end up making a thread for it.

    When I first heard of the deal last night, my knee jerk reaction was "what are they doing?" Once I settled down and heard what they were getting back, it made a little more sense. Going into this offseason, my thinking that anybody could be moved except Jrue, but Hinkie obviously didn't have the same mindset. They want to go into full rebuilding mode and not having the 10-13 pick every year, which they probably would have had if they kept Jrue.

    I think Carter-Williams can develop into a good point guard, but his outside shot has to get much better because it's pretty bad right now. I don't know much about the kid from Oregon, but I've heard positive things about him.

    The Sixers are definitely playing for next offseason in the draft and free agency. I think they still make some moves this offseason, but I don't expect any big signings until next year. In hopes of a good future, it looks like us fans are going to have suffer through a couple rough years of Sixers basketball.

    hell no
    Agree about josh smith. He has the worst shot selection of mostly anybody in the nba. He's efficient around the rim but he thinks he's a jump shooter. He also wants max contract. Yikes to whatever team wastes a max contact slot on this guy.

    Yep. The wiz are definitely a team to watch too. Nice thing is that there isn't much waiting time between the end of the season, the draft and free agency. Nets/Knicks should have a nice rivalry next year. I can easily see a 4/5 first round matchup between the two

    not a fan of the syracuse pg the 6ers picked up...as for the trade have to give up a high end asset to get one...and jrue is probably the only one on the roster that could command a high return...god knows evan turners not gonna do it...

    i didn't even watch the 6ers this year did the 2nd round pick pf type from the year prior develop at all??? i liked what i saw of that kid in the postseason against the c's...can't remember his name though...
    hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"

    I'm going to wait and see with Carter-Williams. He seems to have a nice overall game, but the one glaring deficiency is that jump shot of his. Over time I would like to hope it would improve. I'll be honest, when I first learned of the trade, I couldn't believe it. Even though it might not give much in return, I wouldn't be surprised if the Sixers traded Turner. It's pretty obvious that they are setting themselves up for next year's draft/free agency.

    You're thinking of Lavoy Allen, and he did anything but develop, regressed if anything. The coaching did have something to with that when Collins would play him one game and sit him the next, but that's a whole other story. He would show flashes at time, but he was nowhere the player that went up against the Celtics a couple years ago.

    The overall game is garbage. He was drafted because all the tools are there, and he could potentially be a hell of a player if he ever puts is all together. He didn't look very good at Syracuse.....can't hit a jumper, can't finish inside, turns it over a lot. But you look at him and the shooting motion looks great, hes a big kid that can jump out of the gym, and he can throw some beautiful passes.

    it was time for boston to move on and rebuild...hell it was time last offseason
    I have no doubts Boston has entered themselves into the Wiggins sweepstakes.

    If they're really committed to the Wiggins sweepstakes, they'll trade Rondo. I can't see them doing that, then again look at what the Sixers did with Holiday.
