Yeah I think its not true but the link was on their Forum about a deal.

Its wait & see mode whether this is just a lifeless rumor or if it has legs, we might not find out yet at only 1:46 in the morning.

Yeah if true Philly definetly wins this deal.

Basically a 1 for 2 deal.

I doubt its true, hopefully we get some confirmation via Twitter soon.

well role players/starters

like Perkins for the Celtics is a role player.

Rip hamilton is basically a shooter and Prince is good at shooting and has some defense, but is extremely inconsistent. getting Iggy for those 2 is robbery.

Because everyone is using Twitter and people have verified accounts like legit sports writers who can pass it off as soon as they hear it.

Dei Lynam is about as truthful as they come in terms of sports writers for the 76ers.

Do NOT post rumors as if they are fact!!

Do NOT present hearsay as if it's actually news!!

If you don't have a link to back up a story - and that's a link to an actual hard news site, not another forum site or something like hoopshype or hoopsworld, but something like ESPN, the Boston Globe, a legit news organization, then post the thread for what it is: A RUMOR.

ray ray is also older and makes more money. i also think hamilton is a better playmaker.

perkins can block shots and make 2 feet hook shots. nothing else really.

Perkins can also rebound pretty well too.

Don't u think the chemistry and team work of the Pistons made these guys look a lot better than they are?

Deion Branch for the Patriots was a Super Bowl MVP, but then left and hasnt done a thing. he was and is a role player who looked much better on a great team.

for basketball, look at the international teams. Like team Greece. most of the guys cant get on an NBA roster, but their chemistry gives them a fighting chance against a team of Kobe, LBJ, Melo, Wade, D12 etc...

Iggy is already a star player. Mabye not an A star but a second class star like Rudy Gay and Kevin Martin. Rajon Rondo isn't their yet and he won't be until he learns to play without 3 superstars to draw attention away from him.

No they're not.

We're specifically talking Philly & Detroit here, its 2:26 right now.

If a trade breaks at this time it would have to be confirmed later on this morning around 5 or 6 but not at 2 in the morning.

Most people who work in the news field sleep during these hours.
