    This. I've tried not to think about it too much, but if Bynum doesn't come back our best bet is almost certainly going to be tearing it down completely and starting again around Jrue and the draft. Trying to go forward with a Gortat or really any combination of our current Thad/Spencer/whatever would be fighting just to get back to the mediocrity we've been hating on for years. We'll need some championship calibre bigs, and unless anyone has great FA ideas, we're going to be best in the long run tearing it down. It's a good thing Jrue's only 22 and we have him on a fresh contract.
    If that's the case, well I guess Gortat for Thad works because he probably has just as much trade value and is on a shorter contract, but it's still nothing to get excited about.

    I too hate seeing Kwame start. He's been highly useful in only one game so far this season. And Gortat could have provided the same low post defense in that game...while being better at everything else.
    That was tennisoscar. Confusing, I know.

    This.
    I still really wanna get some good 2013 or 14 picks though.. I think we have to start developing another great young talent soon, cause all we really have is Jrue and Bynum. Bynum likely wont ever be GTG for a full season, and who knows how the knees will hold up with age and for deep playoff runs.. The FA's arent all that great either. We need another star, and to develop another young stud if we wanna out of mediocrity IMO.

    What are chances we get Jabari Parker in 2014 draft?

    I'm tired of this mediocrity.

    looking ahead to next summer tho.... (i almost made a thread about this, but since its not even close to the all-star break even, i thought this was more appropriate).

    im still assuming bynum plays for us, but lets just pretend that he doesnt play this year.... obviously, extending him is out of the question (although im sure a team out there will offer him the max anyway).

    my question is.... what do the sixers do with roughly 20mil of cap room. im thinking OJ mayo and al jefferson. jefferson is an improved defender, would be able to play the 4 next to hawes....

    wed have to get a salary dump for thad to make this work (hopefully a 1st rd pick, hes playing good, should have value).

    Official 2012-13 Trade / Roster Discussion Thread Pt 1.

    What should we do? Lol.

    I actually dont think theyd blow it on bynum. Unless he plays and his knees look ok.... If bynum plays the last month, pulls us to the ecf, then hes extended for 5 years at the max, i dont care about the knees at all.

    If he doesnt play tho, thats a whole new world... I dont believe the sixers pay him because i think the MAVS or SUNS will max him out after missing out on howard. And i honestly dont think philly matches.

    I dont think the sixers can get bad enough to be a top 10 lotto team, but if they have 20 mil in cap room what do they do? And if they can move thad for say an expiring and a 1st (maybe a late lotto pick?) what would YOU do with 28mil in cap space?

    Outside of the Josh smith pipe dream?
    Nothing id wait it out until next season not this one

    but assuming we could go for whoever
    my wishlist assuming Fair market value would be
    1.smith
    2.Ariza
    3.Milsap
    4.Gordon (ben)
    5. Robinson

    Id love somthing like

    Jrue Gordon Turner Smith Hawes
    Or
    Jrue Turner Smith Milsap Hawes

    eather of those 2 line ups sound nice and Nate and Ariza are just ideas for the bench
    But honesty id rather just sit on the cap space for a year because nothing looks that appealing this year
