View Full Version : Redd to Sixers? Rumor

A credible insider on their board last night said the Sixers offered Dalembert, Green and a future 1st. Talks continuing.

****** Bucks board.

Do you think this would be a solid trade for the Bucks? Bucks really need to get rid of Redd's contract as he isn't that good and would free up some salary cap.

With the RJ trade, the Bucks are clearly heading into a differen't direction and are starting to re-build. Redd doesn't play defense, he is a ball hog. He is signed to a 92 million dollar contract (I believe it is) and the Bucks could get free up some more cap space.

The Bucks could then ship Dalembert to a differen't team and get even younger.

Really wouldnt mind it. We could run a fast paced offense if we wanted to..

PG - Louis Williams/Draft
SG - Redd
SF - Iggy
PF - Thad Young
C - Elton Brand

Interesting..

Sixers fans would be disapointed in Redd, just like any team would. The guy is LAZY when he's playing defense, and he shoots the ball WAY to much. Yes, he can score 30 PPG or more in any given night, but he shoots the ball 15-20 times a night if not more, and he gets hurt every year and coming off a Torn ACL and MCL injury if I remember correctly.

He shoots at a 45% career percentage which isn't that great at all.

replace green with someone else and htis would be a fair trade.

bucks get rid of redds contract add a first.

76ers get a #2 scoring option

Right Round
06-24-2009, 05:16 PM
As a 76ers fan, this would be too good to be true. The two most worthless players on the team heading out for an all-star.

And to VCaint, Redd will be off the books after 2010/2011. No way he'll decline his option and be a FA in 2010.

He also shoots 39% from three and 84% from the foul line and rarely turns the ball over for someone who has the ball in his hands so much. He's a positive addition to any team.

He's a good shooter, don't get me wrong, I'm saying he shoots the ball WAY to much, and he doesn't play defense.

He is one of the worst defenders in the league at the SG posistion, trust me, and with a blown out knee, it won't help him either.

He's not a great defender but he's passable. And when you can shoot that many shots at that good of a rate, then keep shooting.

I'd rather the guy who shoots 39% on a lot of shots take them then the guy who shoots 32% in the same amount of shots.

Everyone in Milwaukee wanted him gone two years ago, it was a huge mistake signing him to such a big contract. He may score 20-25 PPG per game, but he would give up just as many.

Brand is 6'9, 6'8 without shoes. Regardless he has a 7 footers wingspan. If the sixers did play brand at C and Thad at PF it would mean the sixers would be one of the quickest teams in the league, but also one of the smaller ones. I wouldnt be totally comfortable with brand at c and thad at pf but if it means having iggy in his natural positon, the 3 and redd at sg... im for it.... brand at c and redd at sg is better than dalembert at c and iggy at the 2.

Hell no im not trading Redd and then having him light it up in Philly:mad::mad:
Skiles said that Redd is starting to play defense the way he did at Ohio State
(he was drafted for defense) he's on the up and his trainers and Redd himself said after ACL or MCL or whatever surgery he was feeling stronger and will be better than ever NO WAY ARE WE TRADING HIM FOR SCRUBS AND A PICK!

this trade would be amazing for the Sixers!

I know Redd has kind of slowed down a bit over the past couple years, but if he can be 60% the player he was then he'll be awesome for us.

A starting SG that can shoot and clear up space for our slashers Iguodala and Thad and allow Brand to have someone to kick it out to when he's stuck in the paint.

This rumor also makes sense because why hasn't Dalembert been shipped to Charlotte yet? Something has to be getting in the way because that deal was as good as finalized. Maybe this new Redd development is in the works?

Im excited.

We solve a big hole while getting rid of the worst two players on our team. I think our future 1st will be irrelevant because there is already a ton of young talent on the Sixers

look at this lineup

PG: Eric Maynor (hopefully)/ Lou Williams
SG: Michael Redd
SF: Andre Iguodala/ Jason Kapono
PF: Thaddeus Young/ Marreese Speights
C: Elton Brand/ Jason Smith

yes this adds another great player to philly and makes them better on paper and gives them more talent, but unless there trying to move either Thadeus Young or Andre Iguadola, i dont see how this works.

You just signed Elton Brand to a zillion dollar contract to be your starting power forward. If you trade for Redd and hes 2 guard, you play Iggy at the 3 and Thad at the 4...and then where does Brand play? the center?! thats a joke.

unless the sixers are planning to bring either thad, iggy, or redd off the bench(and none of those players are bench players), or move one of them for a true center(with dalembert leaving in this deal), i dont see how this works

do this deal, then trade Iggy to the Suns for Shaq and picks then it works :)

JtotheMurphy
06-24-2009, 06:24 PM
Didn't Manu come of the bench? I have no problem having Thad contribute 18 ppg off the bench. Also, remember the NBA is a game of matchups, so we can move our players around the lineup given the team. Depth is NEVER a problem.

SeoulBeatz
06-24-2009, 06:49 PM
Brand can play center and did play center on the clippers at times so that point is irrelevant.

The guy has a 7' 2" wingspan which is why he can grap so many boards and is 6'8" 250 thus outweighing every center in the east besides dwight howard.

get it done ed, get it done.

I found another source of the trade, it was Dalembert and Lou Williams in this source


Milwaukee (AP) - The Milwaukee Bucks have pulled off a blockbuster move today, adding three players while just giving up one.

The Bucks traded Richard Jefferson to the San Antonio Spurs for outstanding defender Bruce Bowen, and accomplished centers Kurt Thomas and Fabricio Oberto.

Bucks' GM John Hammond said of the trade "we know we lost a great player in RJ, but we really like the guys we brought in. We're not done though. Expect more moves this offseason."

Two rumors that have been tossed about are Bogut to New Orleans for Antonio Daniels and Morris Peterson, and Michael Redd for Samuel Dalembert and Lou Williams of the Sixers.

"You can never have enough big men," Hammond said.

I would love this trade if only to get rid of Dalembert and that joke of a player Willie Green. No matter what happens though the lineups won't be perfect. Take a look at the options.

If we trade for Redd:
PG - Miller/Draft Pick
SG - Redd
SF - Iguodala
PF - Young
C - Brand

Pros: Another sharpshooter in addition to Kapono, unloads Dalembert's ridiculous contract, gets rid of that waste of life Willie Green

Cons: Puts undersized Brand at center, iffy-at-best defense from Redd

Current Roster Option 1:
PG - Miller/Draft Pick
SG - Iguodala
SF - Young
PF - Brand
C - Smith (NOT Dalembert no matter what)

Pros: Puts Young and Brand both at natural positions (and Young will quickly become far better than Iguodala at the 3 spot)

Cons: Puts Iguodala at 2 and he can't shoot nearly consistently enough

Current Roster Option 2:
PG - Miller/Draft Pick
SG - Green (NO!)
SF - Iguodala
PF - Young
C - Brand

Pros: Iguodala is a proven 3

Cons: Willie Green starting, Young and Brand both out of position

All in all, there will be problems no matter what the Sixers do. Given the above options I would prefer the first option of the current roster and have Iguodala do nothing but work out like normal and practice 500 jump shots a day. Period.

IM STUCK ON THIS TRADE, I KEEP SAYIN YES AND NO IN MY HEAD LOL. We could use REDD in our lineup but only if thad comes off the bench(wins 6th man of the year) i dont like thad playinf the 4 and brand at the center. But if we do make the trade i wouldnt be mad, so i will keep sayin yes & no lol. REDD,IGGY,THAD,BRAND just looks SOOOO great "on paper" If we do make the trade and everyone stays healthy we would be deadly in every aspect of the game. People keep sayin REDD plays no defense, we we had MILLER & GREEN as our 2 starting guards and still had a pretty decent defensive team. SO adding maybe LAWSON & REDD to the sixers is a major upgrade(in my eyes) on offense and defense. WHAT YALL THINK??
