    yeah but that pick could turn in to Green/Suggs/Mobley who would be on rookie scale contracts and have high ceilings. Id rather keep the pick tbh.

    They absolutely need to re-sign Powell, who can be a secondary scoring option. But itís not like you need a second guy scoring 25 a game, especially when you have a dynamo like Dame - look at how well the Hawks are doing with one alpha scorer.

    Finding a home for Nurk and getting a 5 that can space the floor, or bring in a 4 that doesnít mind bodying guys in the post but can shoot some.

    FWIW with the Blazers 3PT shooting, Ben has assisted on the most 3ís made in the last 3 years and is up there in points contributed (which is basically an combination of points, assists, hockey assists, rebounds, and turnover created).

    Just saying picks likely have little interest to the Sixers so 4 is more meaningful than a future pick because it can be flipped for help now.

    Simmons and Lillard would be an interesting pairing but I would have to see what else they put around them. Young has other scoring options and depth. John Collins is the 2nd go to guy on that team, then they have guys like Bogdonavic, Gallo who are bucket getters as well. And guys like Huerter & Capella are weapons too.

    Collin is a great athlete with some skills but he more of a guy that plays off the ball and scores on cuts and spot up after ball movement. Bogs has been there 2nd go to guy. With him hurt I think Huerter and Gallo both get there number called more then Collins as ďgo toĒ scoring options.

    Not a slight on Collins. Heís been really good of late. I just donít think he gets a lot of buckets bc they call his number and expect him to create a shot

    Woj reporting a few things right now:
    - Ben has met with all parties on the Sixers about a plan.
    - Rich Paul is on board with the Sixers plan.
    - About 26 teams would be interested in Ben.
    - Value around the league is still very high, especially compared to fans.
    - Sixers are not going to trade him just to trade him.
    - Part of Benís plan for improvement is for him to spend a few weeks living with Joel Embiid and Joel helping him learn to shoot.

    Wonder who the 3 are who aren't interested in him.

    76ers need to trade him, if he's on the 76ers roster October 19th, 2021 all hope is lost.

    More like he will be kidnapped by Embiid, who will take him home and hold him prisoner until he learn how to shoot, or Embiid ultimately beats the crap out of him lol .... All jokes aside, I think they will have Embiid and probably a shooting coach working on his shot all offseason. I like it.

    For sure Miami, James Butler hates him. I could see Phionex since Booker stole his girl.

    Oh well, just get a big 27 team trade going and get Ben off the team.

    With guys like Young and Doncic you have to playoff the ball because they are so ball dominant. But Collins is a perfect big man for the modern ere with respect to his skillset. Hes not a pure go to scorer but he is def a weapon and I think ATL has done a great job with surrounding Young with weapons that compliment his game. Dallas needs to do the same with Doncic.

    With respect to the Blazers, If they trade for Simmons the would have to further retool the roster to compliment his game and Lillards.

    yup. One thing I will agree with War is that if/when a deal is made for Simmons people will be surprised by the return.
