(DRAFT DAY TRADE)

76ers trade : Andre Iguodala(30mil/2yrs) + #15 pick.

Kings trade : Francisco Garcia(6mil expiring) + Travis Outlaw(9mil/3yrs) + #5 pick.


Why for Philly :
They get help to speed up their already known decision to move forward with Evan Turner and Jrue Holiday as the future, get rid of Iggy who while is an elite defensive player gave them headache with his overpaid contract and a roster logjam - a player who in general isn't very likely to be in their longterm plans.

They get great value with the 5th pick in the draft to speed up their rebuilding on the fly with a rookie contract(Drummond?, Robinson?) to join a core of Jrue and Turner - and also improve their dreadful cap space situation and save around 15 million dollars overall - while the only longterm burden they'll have is 3mil per year Travis Outlaw who has 3 more years left - with Garcia quickly turning into a possible asset as an expiring.

Overall this is likely the best deal they could get for a player they wanted to get rid of who holds their future core of Turner and Jrue back with saving money, and getting a top young piece of a rookie deal, and getting a chance to potentially get out of that "good but not great" loop they're in as a 1st-2nd round exit playoff team - with this move probably followed by using their amnesty on Elton Brand, putting them in an advanced rebuilding mode with the more potential, youth, and a capspace then they currently have - marking 'check' on all their goals.

Why for Sacramento :
In theory they get their much needed SF of the future, and feel a HUGE void after years of waiting.
Elite defensive player, one of the best in the league - a veteran locker-room presence and defensive leader who takes pride on what he does, and can set the tone for this young team moving forward, a team that was the worst defensive team in the league last year - who also helps them fix a roster logjam as a natural 3, moving Tyreke to the 2 position while getting Thornton to his ideal 6th man scorer off the bench role.

An insanely valuable all-around player, who can more then share the playmaking responsibilities with Tyreke/Isaiah Thomas - a fantastic transition player who fits perfectly for the fastest paced team in the league - and an underrated and valuable catch and shoot player who won't be asked to create offense off the dribble as much or highlight his offensive limitations - but would be asked to do exactly what he does best as a defensive specialist, a playmaker, and spot up shooter 3rd-4th offensive option who plays off others in the flow of the game and does every little thing it takes to win.

With Sacramento taking the biggest risk here(Betting on Iggy to commit long-term who could turn out to be a 2 year rental on an overpaid contract, giving up their last major piece in the 5th best pick on a rookie contract, and taking an extra 15 milion dollars in the process in capspace) - they sweeten the deal up dropping some deadweight in the likes of Garcia and especially Outlaw - and get the 15th overall pick to match the value, which could and should be used on someone like John Henson or more likely Meyers Leonard as an athletic shotblocking big. to put next to DeMarcus Cousins.

Overall it's a big risk cause it's not at all sure Iggy would commit - and if he would he'd prolly force Sac to overpay - but considering the market it's a risk worth taking with a team that desperately needs to win more games.

I don't know how likely the Sixers are to trade their best player a month after getting to the second round of the playoffs for the first time in nine years. If they did, this deal is more appealing than drafting Andre Drummond fifth overall.

As said in the Sixers forum, I love it. Most Sixer fans seem to think it's a pipe dream for us - they don't think Iggy can get you a top-10 pick - but I think it's pretty reasonable for both sides. Would be stoked if it happened.

Iggy is just too overpaid. I would love to have him, but that contract is horrid.

Plus, Iggy may help us now, but we need a SF for the long-term. Iggy would be for the short-term.I would rather keep the pick.

i'd love this trade, but its a pipedream

iggy and a 15 is not worth a #5 pick in this loaded draft.

People may think he is overpaid. But he is a valuable All Star player who is the best defensive player at his position. All this is is Iggy to move up 10 spots in the draft, which is a joke, Neither King players are worth a *****. And Outlaw has a CANCEROUS Contract, and is done as a player. Only way this deal would happen is if Cousins was added in, and the Kings take Brand back.

Give up Cousins? You're out of your mind.

Iguodala may have reached an All Star Game but the 76ers fans & most likely their management feel that at 28 years old and making $15 Million per year they can win without him moving forward.

Philadelphia will have a solid group of young players in Young(23), Turner(23), Holiday(21), Hawes(24), Allen(23), & Williams(25) who would benefit without Iguodala getting his touches thinking hes the star.

The ability to add to that young core with the #5 pick to grab a player like Harrison Barnes, Thomas Robinson, or Andre Drummond is well worth giving up an overpaid player who gives you 12 PPG.

Then they'll clear salary with Elton Brand also expiring and be able to offer a Max contract to someone next summer or just sign 1-2 more good players to the mix.

GREATNESS ONE

Yea Cousinz isn't moving. I think the likeliest way this deal gets done if some talent like T. Evans goes back the other way.
