The Philadelphia dump gets: Bryan Colangelo,Jerry Colangelo, philly ownership group

Sixers get: Sam Hinkie


1.) 23 Feb 2017 19:15:54
Colangelo needs to go he sucks he would've done better by doing nothing

2.) 23 Feb 2017 20:32:22
Hate this gm.

3.) 23 Feb 2017 22:02:19
Anyone who thinks Hinkie did a good job, You're clueless to no end. Any bum off the street can tear down a team and lose! Hinkie is where he should be, NBA unemployed.

To look at the sixers team now versus when hinkie got there and not think they are in a better position is beyond crazy. People that didnt/ still can't see that have no foresight. When I say "better position". I'm talking about to win a championship, which is what this, atleast to myself is all about. Teams like Washington, Houston, hawks, bulls, grizzlies etc. are content in getting a decent seed in the playoffs every year and then being 1st or 2nd round knockouts. And if that's what you want as a fan then fine, but myself and I hope most would like the opportunity to root for a championship team.

There is only around 4-6 teams every year that have a remote chance at winning the trophy. That's a fact. To be in that group you need to have the best players. That's a fact. All the best players today are looking to play with other really good players once they reach free agency to have a chance to win the trophy. That's a fact. There are also certain locations, city-wise, that can draw players (LA, MIAMI, newyork etc) for obvious reasons. That's a fact. So unless you get these guys through the draft, I would guess that atleast 60 percent of the teams in the league have no chance of winning a championship anytime soon.

Hinkie was taking the only viable way of building a champion based on the current rules in a city that isn't one of those city's that would attract the top guys.

Look at all the high picks (and players) the guy has accumulated versus what has actually been traded away and anyone with half a brain can see that he was a winner in literally every trade that he has ever done as the sixers gm.

Who's your team ECL? let's compare.

I'm disgusted by the return for Noel. Coangelo basically got Anderson and 2 2nds. Disgusted. Hinkie 2.0 basically.

6.) 24 Feb 2017 01:17:33

Any bum could of gotten a 2nd rounder for illy and Noel. Even the kings gm.

7.) 24 Feb 2017 05:04:49
Worst think Hinkie did was draft Okafor.



22 Feb 2017 15:10:21
If kcp can be had from Detroit.

Sixers get: kcp

Detroit gets okafor and 10-14 protected sixers 2018 1st rd pick

I'd give noel instead of okafor, but then the pick would be the 2020 protected okc 1st rounder.

I think kcp would be a perfect fit with the sixers.

Thoughts/other senarios?


1.) 22 Feb 2017 15:29:17
I'm saying the protection falls somewhere between top 10 and 14.

2.) 22 Feb 2017 15:43:35
Ha! No sixers pass of course.

3.) 22 Feb 2017 15:51:06
Tre, what would be your issue with this senario and what are you looking to get back for okafor?

We have 5 potentially high first round picks the next three years. Roster spots are filling up, and I'd prefer to not be the celtics filling them with dleague mid to late first rounders like james young, zeller, olynyk etc.

4.) 22 Feb 2017 19:43:48
Tre things okafor is a top 5 center in the league and dillusional. The Pistons say no. KCP is a VERY good 2 in the league and just improving.



21 Feb 2017 19:41:54
So I think that there is a real possibility that the kings end up with one of the bottom three records in the league this year after the cousins trade. Currently it looks like phoenix is looking to sell and bkn isn't going anywhere. To me that leaves the the lakers as the odd man out in this scenario, potentially sending thier pick to the Sixers.

Also today news broke that magic johnson has been named the new GM of the lakers. Magic has been open on Twitter about being a Jahlil Okafor fan because of his winning at every level prior to the nba.

This leads me to the opportunity I see there for the Sixers

Lakers get: Okafor

Sixers get: removal of protection from the lakers pick this year.

Reasoning as stated above would be that the lakers may very well lose this pick anyway. So to get something like okafor in return rather then nothing would be a savvy move by the lakers new gm.

For the sixers in this scenario they would end up with two top 5 picks (kings swap) in a "loaded" draft and have thier pick of several nice prospects to continue the build.

Hinkie knows all

What do you think?


1.) 21 Feb 2017 19:58:44
No reason to flip Okafor for something you'll definitely get.

2.) 21 Feb 2017 20:13:26
I don't see you right argument. We give them okafor because the pick is most likely outside of the top three anyway. I'm confused.

3.) 21 Feb 2017 20:20:46
There's still so many moving parts though (lottery, suns actually playing well the rest of the way, sixers not playing embiid or simmons the rest of the way ) that I think it would be worth it to guarentee getting the pick this year in a draft with a class that moreso fits thier needs rather then next year's class.

4.) 21 Feb 2017 20:23:09
I want the pick this year. This guarantees that, no matter where it falls. Everything else I said is just hypothetical, and not reality yet.

5.) 21 Feb 2017 21:25:10
The lakers would be idiots to take the protection off the first. If they keep their pick, then the pick they traded to Orlando becomes two second rounders. So they're basically trading two firsts. Seems like a bad move.

6.) 21 Feb 2017 21:27:50
I can understand that. I'd like the pick too. but why would you if your the lakers give up the chance to keep it for okafor. Next year it is unprotected anyway so the sixers can get it next years as lakers don't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. Even with a top pick this year in a guard heavy draft they already have Russell. I think sixers would like to garentee the pick but with it being unprotected next year the incentive might not be that high. This team is always tanking it seems anyway.

7.) 21 Feb 2017 22:02:37
I'd be most willing to offer them Okafor and the pick for Russell.

Sixers get derozen

Raptors get illyasova stauskas, and the contract of Brett Brown.


1.) 14 Nov 2016 06:21:28
Are you high?



13 Nov 2016 07:06:58
Sixers get derozen

Raptors get tj McConnell, Holmes, 5 2nd Rd picks.

I'm guessing this is a joke. Five 2nd's seems to suggest it. If not, you are terrible at this.

Pelicans have no reason to trade Davis. I don't even think those specific picks get him alone, let alone whatever else NO needs to add.

I don't think a protected 1st gets Covington at this point.

The celtics need to find a way to move horford if they are going to move him or thomas. I feel like no one talks about that bad signing. he shouldn't be a max guy.
