    "smart decisions" is being confused with overly "safe" decisions that continue mediocrity.

    That's what the Sixers did.

    Normally, I like a Dileo lead draft in the late lottery or in the middle of the 1st round. But the past two drafts now, there was an unusual amount of depth in the 2nd half of the 1st round, and instead the Sixers drafted the same type of prospects they would have in years past in weaker drafts.

    With the exception of the fact that Harkless can at least defend and has good size for SF, there was nothing smart about these decisions. The decisions made in this draft define the mediocrity of this franchise. This was worse than the decision to draft Vooch....by a mile.

    NOT ONE Team traded in the top ten. There was no deal to be made.

    Let Mo play at least one preseason game first before you judge. Vuc was a decent pick, he's a cheap backup center. He will develop.

    Who would you have selected at 15?

    That's not true. The Nets traded what was a guaranteed top-10 pick for Wallace.

    He was talking about draft night. Obviously there were trades well before then

    GM, has a lot of ire regarding HArkless. And I don't get it. You think this pick was safe? Thought you'd wanted Zeller. What would have been safe than that?

    Goodness gracious, we drafted a 6'11 power forward that can rebound and cut off the ball, that can ROLL in a pick'n roll. And we drafted a pup on the wing with upside. It boggles my mind as to why you are so upset and so critical.

    What's even more puzzling is that you want to trade Iggy for more youth and draft picks. Why? You hate our picks! I think Jrue was the last guy you were OK with after a little nudging.

    There was no FORCE left on the board we grabbed Harkless over. There was no shooter. There was no one to immediately make this team, as is, better. Zeller would have been more of the same. He's helping no team out of mediocrity. He does what he's supposed to do. Where he excels, so do we. We don't need a big that can run the floor. We need one that can grab the rebound so our smalls can. I think that's what
    Moultrie is good at. And he can play above the rim. Zeller's not.

    It's so odd, though, that you want draft picks, draft picks, draft picks, but so vehemently despise our selections.
    Pay attention. You might learn something.

    Facts are facts; if you're tryna make a point, make one that's clear. I shouldn't have to make an assumption. For example, who the **** is your comment directed to?

    Click 'User CP' at the left of the red bar a few inches from the top of your page. Then on the left hand side, about 10 links down (under Settings & Options) click 'Edit Ignore List'.

    Zack Rosen will be playing for the Sixers Summer League team, which could lead to an invite to training camp.

    Zach Rosen, local kid. Nice.

    I can't wait for the summer league team this year. We're going to have a lot of big men on the squad

    I believe Arnette hurt his ankle and won't play in the summer league.
