I don't follow the 76ers much to be honest, but I like Philly since I was a kid and Barkley was my favorite player.
I know the team has struggled with its current line-up, but it seems to me that with Young, Tunder and Hawes, coupled with an emerging MCW and the addition of the most talented player in this year's draft, Noel Nerlens, to look forward to next year, AND a first round draft pick which very well may be top 3 and likely top 5 at the very least, the 76ers had a lot to look forward to by just staying pat and holding onto these players.
If the 76ers were able to add a quality shooting guard through the draft, this team would have been contending next season. I realize that some of the guys have numbers that are slightly inflated, but if Nerlens is as good as billed, and the Sixers did well with their top-five pick, this roster, as is, could have improved immensely. Not to mention picking up a player with the MLE and yougn guards like Wroten and Anderson in the rotation (though I'm not too high on either of them).
It seems that the Sixers gave up Tuner and Hawes for second round picks, which pretty much equates to nothing but cap space, which they would have had anyways since Hawes and Turner were both on expiring contracts.
Are Sixers fans sold on these dealine deals? Do you guys see this as missed potential?
