Well unless the cap changed drastically we have NO more money for free agents besides like minimum. Expect a trade with our 1st rounders or 2nd rounders.

Yup, if we really want a top notch shooter or something, it's a trade.

The sixers have a little bit more flexibility than we all may think with their money. They can offer a Bi-Annual Exception worth $1.91 million to a player this year. Personally, I think we would do very well to use that money and target either Jarvis Hayes or Kareem Rush. They would both be good fits at the backup SF position and they both have the ability to knock down a three.



2) The Bi-Annual Exception. This exception was $1.83 million last season and will be $1.91 million this season. Itís when you can sign a player, or players, to a one or two year contract(s) and you can use it every other year.

SIXERS.COM NOTE: The Sixers did not use their Bi-Annual Exception in 2007-08, therefore it is available to them for the upcoming season.

I say we trade Green and sign Rush. He could back up the SG and SF position, which was left vacant when Carney was traded. Fills two needs.

Shieldsz

I say we trade Green away for just a 2nd if possible (i doubt it)

This would need to happen RIGHT away though before we re-sign lou and iggy. Then with the extra cash, sign 2 good guys or 1 great guy with 5 mil.

the sixers are gonna piece together the roster using all the rules

we'll get someone with the trade exception, the bi annual excepton, trading willie green and a pick

my quesiton is can we offer some1 a mid-level exception???

also we should really worry about money theyve been paying the luxary tax on sucky teams since we like drafted iverson im pretty sure they wont mind paying a little more if we actually can put up a contender

also we have some pretty athletic players on our summer roster and they will come cheap

No, we can't offer the mid-level exception. You either start FA under the cap or over. If your over then yes you get it, WE were under thus we DONT get it. Even if we go over once we signed brand

apparently sixers.com got this one wrong. I was researching it more and it seems as though the bi-annual has the same rules as the mle in that if you are below the cap and sign someone with that cap space, you cant use the money. So the only money we have is $1.1M minimum for a player with 10 years of experience or more and $775,000 to offer to a player with less than 10 years. Sucks.

What is it that the Sixers need? 3 pt shooters is the answer if you were wondering. JJ Reddick would be perfect, with Brand getting double teamed all the time he would just knock one down after another. As I said before everyone is so blinded by their hatred for The kid and Duke.

Knowledge, your just like everyone else on this forum who doesnt truley get Reddicks situation. JJ Reddick was easily on of the 10 best college basketball players of all time. He broke Dukes all time scoring record (the top college program and if you dont agree you cant argue top 3). He put up 46 pts against the number 2 Texas team where the Nets play, he made the championchip UNC team look silly, he never missed free throws, and because all of this he was drafted with the number 11 overall selction. That summer, he tore up the summer league as expected and got decent minutes his rookie year under I believe it was Brian Hill, the guy before Van Guny and average a solid 7 pts a game. That year he showed tons of flashes on a team that made it to the playoffs. That summer he was invited to the Magics summer camp and tore it up again. Van Gundy hates Reddick and never played him despite the fact Reddick tore it up every practice (there are tons of articles about how he tore it up in practice by some orlando writer u can google it) The Magic had about 8 3 pt shooters on the team and Reddick was Van Gundys least favorite, despite the fact that he scored when he came into the game. People who are rational and logical about Reddicks situation know he can play in this league.

philly33
07-11-2008, 02:36 PM
I know that one of the main reasons is bc He is in love with Keith Bogans who I actually like. Ive also been told that he doesnt think hes a great defender (which hes not, but hes better then Korver ever was) People are really confused in Orlando though because the gm is sending mix signals saying they think he is a very special player, and very valuable to the team winning, but then they never play him at all so people are confused. WIth the singing of Peitrus, and Drafting of Courtney Lee, he HAS to be traded this summer. The thing that doesnt make sense is how everyone on the magic is so impressed with him in practice, and he still doesnt play. The main thing I dont get is I believe he has done more then enough to get a chance to play more in the NBA.

Relax big guy....just stating my opinion. And you obviously didnt read the whole post if you took offense.

As far as this Reddick debate goes...Saying he is one of the 10 best college players ever is far fetched. And lets not forget that being a great college player means absolutely nothing when translating into what type of pro you will be (see:Danny Ferry, Sam Bowie, Ralph Sampson). The only way I would take Reddick is at the same salary we paid a Louis Admundson.

cbreezy34
07-11-2008, 03:26 PM
Well considering the fact that Reddick is the all time acc leading scorer, claiming he is a top 10 college bball player of all time is not even close to being far fetched. He was much better then Danny Ferry and Sam Bowie in college. But getting back to the NBA I agree that we should really make a push to bring in Reddick. If it fails it fails, but their such a high reward with a guy like him.

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

The only offer the 76ers can make to a potential sharpshooting free agent is the veteran minimum: about $775,000 for a player with fewer than 10 years in the league, $1.1 million for more than 10.

Last season, the Sixers' 31.7 percent shooting from beyond the three-point line was last in the league.

Here are a few potential candidates:


Three for the Money
Brent Barry, 36; 7.1 ppg. last season with San Antonio; career 40.7 percent three-point shooter: Barry could land in Houston, where the Rockets can offer him their $1.9 million exception. But Barry is from the East Coast, and since he has more than 10 years in the league, the Sixers could offer him the higher end of the veteran minimum.

Juan Dixon, 29; 5.0 ppg. last season with Detroit; career 34.1 percent three-point shooter: No, Dixon's numbers aren't staggering, but he has also never averaged more than 26.3 minutes per game in any season of his career. He could be a contributing role player with the right team.

Salim Stoudamire, 25; 5.7 ppg. last season with Atlanta; career 36.6 percent three-point shooter: He's the other, other Stoudamire, behind Amare and cousin Damon. Stoudamire is a good shooter who just hasn't gotten on the court enough to prove it. He made $783,000 last season, right in line with what the Sixers would be able to offer. He is also an Arizona graduate, along with Andre Iguodala.


A Long Shot?
J.J. Redick, 24; 4.1 ppg. last season with Orlando; career 39.0 percent three-point shooter: Redick is not a free agent, but the Magic did draft a shooting guard, Courtney Lee, in the first round, then signed free-agent shooting guard Mickael Pietrus from Golden State. Redick has asked to be traded.

meh... barry signed with the rockets

I like Salim Stoudamire the most. Juan Dixon reminds me toooooo much of Willie Green. Brent Barry signed with Rockets.

Salim Stoudamire would be great though..

Salim is waaaaaaaaaaaay to small to be a SG but he dosnt have PG skills

Shieldsz
07-11-2008, 07:39 PM
He can def shoot though, and thats what we need. I wouldnt mind it. We still would have no backup SF but when Thad is out we can always switch iggy to SF again then have Salim in at SG

Whatever man your just a hater. I just think the guy needs a chance and Philly would be a perfect fit. Hey man listen where in this together as Sixers fans im just saying what I thinks the best for the team

I agree bro, we are all in this together and if the Sixers do get Reddick and he produces I will happily stick my foot in my mouth

I'll trade 2 2nds for JJ Reddick OR Jason Smith FOR JJ Reddick + future 1st?

07-11-2008, 08:12 PM
i think 2 second rounders would work. but smith for redick and a first is to much.

dougie5627
07-11-2008, 08:20 PM
i wouldnt mind reddick as he has potential to score as we all know, but mainly because if he didnt work out then its a cheap experiment that didnt work no big loss, we carried booth, ollie, randolph all last year with no affect. if he turns out to be good then we have just got a steal and the sixers benefit from a pure shooter.

PhillyBoomerang
07-11-2008, 08:23 PM
I think out of Juan Dixon, Salim, and JJ.. The best Pure shooter is Salim.. He is undersized to say the least, but the guy can bury and three pointer.. JJ Redick is the best overall player.. But the question is what would we need to give up to make it work? I think Salim is R-Free Agent however..

Shieldsz
07-11-2008, 08:23 PM
^very true.

Shieldsz
07-11-2008, 08:25 PM
. If we can trade very little for JJ ....i think we should grab him

Shieldsz
07-11-2008, 08:27 PM
I actually think Juan Dixon is the best overall player out of the bunch.

He averages 9 points in his career and is talleer than Salim. Now looking at him more thoroughly would want him

Knowledge215
07-11-2008, 08:30 PM
I suggested Juan Dixon pages ago...He is a solid player that could contribute minutes at both guard positions

Shieldsz
07-11-2008, 08:35 PM
yep.. well if we get any of those guys.. our 3pt percentage will def. go up

Juan Dixon is the only player on this list that has done anything in this league. What is the infatuation with JJ Reddick, he is not even available. Im sure they dont Wille Green or that second round pick.


We dont even want willie or the second round pick!!!!!!

THey wont be able to trade Willie.. Who would want him, and his 3-4contract. ?
Remember how we traded Steven Hunter n then he failed his physical or didnt show to the team and we had to bring him back after like 2 weeks.

Reddick is not a free agent but he is good as gone, there are wayyy to many SG's on that team, thats why Willie Green would do no good plus he sucks and his contract sucks. The Magic need big man so I would offer Jason Smith or maybe Jason Smith and a second round pick. I loved Salim in college but I dont think hes big enough. I also dont think we could afford juan Dixon.

Well pick up some veteran free agents. Since we are a ''contender" now, hopefully bunch of players would want to join us for a smaller salary.

07-12-2008, 01:03 AM
I would still liek to keep a pretty young nucleus. Too me Jason Smith is gonna be nothing more then a decent player at best, I def dont see him busting out into a star. I think we should offer him for reddick for sure. Low risk high reward type of situation.

Shieldsz
07-12-2008, 01:10 AM
This is how I feel Ed should go about things:

Sign Jamont Gordon for very as least amount of money as possible for 1 year.

Sign or trade for 3 point shooter to bring off the bench. ex. trade for reddick. sign salim, juan or someone like that.

philly33
07-12-2008, 01:16 AM
Yeah i def agree with that, I like Gordon a lot, good kid good player. Someone was telling me with the bi-annual thing we have we can only sign someone with over 10 years of experince. Now i dont know if thats true, but if it is that cancels out dixon and salim, leaving us Reddick since Barry signed with the rockets.

Mrphilly
07-12-2008, 02:35 AM
Why trade Jason Smith for JJ Reddick. When is it a good to trade someone that can play for someone that can not play???? Smith has proved he can contribute in this league and will get significant minutes at the backup C. Reddick will be wearing a blazer on the end of the bench approximately 2ft from the floor mopping kid.

Then if you trade Smith, we would have a whole at the back up C and SF! No thanks.

SaintHollowTips

JJ reddick sucks - he is a college player and nothing more. JJ reddick sucks - he'd be playing but he can't really score. JJ reddick sucks - how many years did he spend at duke? JJ reddick sucks - if he played for the sixers i'd most likely puke.

We need a shooter, but can only offer the veterans minimum (someone said it was $1.1 mil for those with 10 yrs of experience and $775K for those with less than 10).

We can't trade a 2nd round pick for someone because we are at the cap after the signing of Brand, and therefore have to give someone up to balance the money. Having said that, didn't we acquire a $2.8 million trade exception in the Carney and Booth deal?

If not, we are left with guys that would sign for the veterans minimum. I would have to think Dixon and Kareem Rush can get more than $775K. I wouldn't deal Jason Smith for Redick because then we would be in the same position as we are now, except the hole we would need to fill is a backup big man.

The bottom line is, unless things change, the focus has to be on guys that are willing to accept the veterans minimum.

philly33
07-12-2008, 11:37 AM
I just done see Jason Smith being miuch of a player. He def regressed last year which you never want to see in any player. I mean we have Evans, Brand, Speights, Dalambert, and we can use that minimunum salary to get another big man if you would want to, but a shooter is a lot more important then another calvin booth type of a player.

Michael Finley still on the market?

Miller
Iggy
Thad
Brand
Sammy

Unless you're thinking we'll go with

Miller
Green
Iggy
Brand
Sammy

In that case yea Thad, but the 1st case I think Iggy moves to the 3 and then Willie comes in for the 2.

Jeff Boyd
07-12-2008, 10:17 PM

Phitin' Phan
07-12-2008, 10:31 PM
Boobie Gibson would be nice, but we have Lou. But Gibson is a great shooter. We need a SF type shooter cause we have no depth there. No matter what we need a SF, and if they are our shooter that is great, if not we will need 2 players. I wouldn't be surprised if we get our other players through a trade.

I highly Disagree. I dont see one person playing three other then Iggy and Thad.

I think Backup SG and PG is where we need to go.

Sixerlover
07-12-2008, 10:35 PM
I understand the point you are making, but I think it is easier to improve on a jumper over the course of your career than post moves. So it is more realistic for Iguodala to improve his jumper.

We need a backup sf that can shoot the three, its Iggy time to be the 2, and Thad will be the 3. Green and Lou Will can backup the 1 and 2 and Smith and Evans will backup the 4 and 5, who backs up Thad.
