Would be a very dumb move on behalf of the Sixer front office...i dont see it happening after the playoff run, and the pending sale of the franchise ...if they are really thinking about selling season tickets :facepalm:

I really honestly don't want to see Iggy traded because he is my favourite player on our team. However if he is to get traded I would like us to make it more than just a salary dump. I'd like to see us get some value in return.

The Jazz is rumored to be making Paul Millsap available. But they also are said to be holding open the possibility of moving Al Jefferson in a larger deal if they can get Kanter, a deal that could net them a shooting guard, like Monta Ellis or Kevin Martin with Golden State at No. 11 and Houston No. 14. So then Utah would go big.

Larry Coon also backing me up on the reported Lakers and TWolves rumor, which would include Gasol for Love and No.2. MIN is reluctant tho.



The Cavs are also reaching out to the Atlanta Hawks for a trade: http://t.co/HBnK8p6



The Minnesota TWolves and Milwaukee Bucks are exploring the possibilities of trade which would include Bogut & picks: http://t.co/iJrcFyI



The Houston Rockets have been the most 'aggressive' team in recent weeks: http://t.co/iJrcFyI



Marcin Gortat announces that Suns could be possibly looking to trade him, via his twitter account: http://t.co/iJrcFyI



The front-runner to obtain Sixers swingman Andre Iguodala, are the Los Angeles Clippers: http://t.co/nlMKqfk

Reports: A trade for Andre Iguodala is very close, and insiders saying it is the Clippers. Iguodala expects to be gone by next week.

Reports: The Magic, Warriors, and a few other teams have called Philadelphia for Andre Iguodala's services.



With NBA Draft night near, expect trades to dominate the night. Names including Andre Iguodala, Jameer Nelson and Monta Ellis.



Chris Tomasson reporting that the Nuggets and Nene continue to try and reach a deal with Nene.

God if the Sixers trade Iggy for Kaman...i just don't know....

I don't think the proposed Iggy deal in the article is bad at all.

1.) Iggy doesn't want to be in Philly.....period. I don't really want anyone on our team that doesn't want to be here, and we have not been able to finish a season with a winning record since trading AI. It's time to move in a new direction and that starts with ending the Iggy era.

2.) Al-Farouq Aminu was the number 8 overall pick last year, and has loads of potential and would be a suitable replacement for Iggy. If we could get the number 8 pick this year for Iggy, I'm sure most Sixer fans would jump for joy....and this draft is much weaker than last years.

3.) Chris Kaman, if only a one year rental, will be a big help for us and adds a dimension to this team that we don't have.

4.) Opens a spot in the starting lineup for Evan Turner. We all want to see what this kid can do when not in Iggy's shadow, and he showed last season how productive he can be with Iggy out of the lineup. Moving Iggy will jump start the progression of Evan Turner.

5.) Cap space. Even if Aminu and Kaman don't end up helping us, at the very least we are able to clear Iggy's contract and instead of his contract ending a year after Elton Brand's, it will be cleared before EB's. This means that in the summer of 2013, we will have roughly $33 million cleared instead of $18 million.

6.) As mentioned in the article, it is proposed that the teams would swap 2nd round picks in this year's draft. That would put us in position to possibly snag Jeremy Tyler in the 2nd round should he slip. He most certainly will not be available at 50, but at 37 it's much more probable.




Iggy for Kaman straight up is definitely a salary dump, and it would be tough to stomach that (although there are still a couple positives). But the proposed deal in the article is more than fair IMO. I just don't want the fact that we'd be adding Kaman to affect what we do during the draft, as I still think we should target a big man. Biyombo, Motiejunas, Faried, and Markieff Morris should be at the top of the team's draft board....Kaman or no Kaman.

I mentioned the Cavs in the Magic forum. As a Magic fan, if we have to trade him, I'm not trading him where he wants to go. Get these 2 top picks, Hickson, Verajo, Anthony Parker, and Jamison for D12,, Hedo and Duhon or Orton.

I read houston is building around kevin martin so idk if they let him go without anything valuable in return.

Well then he's not getting traded and he'll walk via free agency. He won't sign an extension with the Cavs, so there is no point of even talking about him going there. Especially if Cleveland is going to give up everything for him.

New report that Knicks have a deal in place to move up to 15(Pacers pick)

Reports: The Warriors and Sixers rumored deal (Andre Iguodala for Monta Ellis) is currently on the table.


As I reported earlier, the Bulls will be among the teams pursuing Vince Carter: http://t.co/k0O55HR


The Knicks also might be willing to make a play for Vince Carter.


Glen Davis, in his recent comments on his offseason, sounded like his stay in Boston could be potentially over. He reiterated that to be effective, he has to be Glen Davis and play like Glen Davis. "I canít perform the way I need to perform if Iím not Glen Davis. I need to be in situation where Iím going to be Glen Davis. If itís here with the Celtics or with somebody else. I just want to make sure Iím Glen Davis, whatever I do, wherever I'm at," said "Big Baby" Davis. Davis has said in the past that he would like to start. He will become a free agent whenever the lockout situation is taken care of.

Vince Carter isn't the fit we need but if he's coming off the bench, I would love it.

If they Lakers get the #2 pick in the draft... they will set themselves up for another 10 years.

I hope it happens, but I wouldn't bet on it.

Yeah, pretty much with Kyrie or Williams.

Kyrie
Kobe
Artest
Love
Bynum

FA/Trade
Kobe
Williams
Love
Bynum

Either way, that's three super young guys that have a ton of potential.

Doubt it happens. Unless someone is holding up a gun on Kahn's head, he would be stupid, dumb, and insane to give up Love & the 2nd Pick for Gasol.

The guy who drafted back to back PG's ? Yep I wouldn't be surprised if he pulls this off.

Toney Douglas for Omri Casspi?? Sounds like a better deal for the Knicks than the Flynn idea... they can easily get another back up PG late in this years draft.

Thats ********... people just want the Lakers to continue to have a suped up team so they say Bynum for Howard, Gasol for Love, #2

They are just dreaming of Kobe having D12, Love, and D-Will backing him up now cause they think this current squad is over

ESPN at it again. It seems like they talk about trade ideas at the water cooler then they publish them on the internet without any validity. Sources say Irving is going to the Cavs... oh wait... now our sources say it's still up in the air. They love the spin.

Arch Stanton
06-21-2011, 12:58 AM
And I don't know who posted this earlier but Dwight Howard isn't going to the Cavs for the farm. Why would we rent him for the year? So we can be the Orlando Magic - weren't we already that team with LeBron?

ESPN probably heard that Minnesota and Lakers were talking about Pau and ESPN takes this as Love wants out of Minnesota and that the Lakers want the #2 pick so the Lakers should just get both
