What would you do if you ran the Sixers?
 
I'm thinking you might want to position yourself for a top lottery pick in 2012.

OT, is Nikola Vucevic gonna get some relevant minutes as far as you know?

No clue honestly. I think it depends how fast he adjusts and picks up things in the NBA.

Hawes has yet to be resigned but chances are he will be (I hope just for 1yr). Tony Battie was given the vet minium not to long ago. And Speights is still on the roster but everyone including his mama expects him to be traded.

So potentially it could be Hawes/Brand/Vucevic/Battie as the big men in the middle.

Playing time will be there for him to get some decent minutes. Hawes only played 21mins per game last year. Brand played some Center to allow Thad at PF. Doug Collins will give the kid a chance but if he is finding it difficult to adjust to the pace of the game, struggling to pick up the offense or lacking confidence? He'll ride the pine. He gave Evan Turner plenty of chances to get minutes but Evan couldnt handle playing off the ball.

So hopefully Vucevic can defend and rebound because that'll keep him on the floor more than offense (ask Speights). I know this wasnt a yes/no answer but this is the best I can go with for now.

Trade Iggy for a young up and comer or high draft pick, then build around Holiday and the new acquisition from the Iggy trade. Holiday will be a stud in this league as he develops.

I'd send doug collins some ace of spades and tell him to keep it up.

I'd scout the 20 to 30th picks of the first round hoping to draft well ( seems reasonable if put to task we do well draftiing considering position)

Then I'd entertain a trade if it only favor'd us beyond belief.

not add a dollar to the cap at any junction.

I'd stalk dwight howard and his agent tell him we could win it all realistically with him aboard next season and our current roster minus elton brand amnesty.

Spit in the face of anybody who said its not possible and believe.

Seriously?

1.Id tie down Thaddeus left hand 8 hours a day and make him go right. Ive still never seen him use his right hand ever.

2. Id say No 3's from Iggy

3. Id tell spencer hawes to bulk up a bit more.



Id also keep this team together for this year to see what they can do. I think the sixers are forutnate this season for a couple of reasons. In this shortened season the sixers have clear advantages.

1. Young team
2. Lots of depth
3. Do not relie on one or two players to perform night in and night out.


I think a normal nba year this team isnt going to perform as well. Eventually we would have to make a run at a superstar , so keep collecting assets to aquire that player.

You already have the assets to do that- hawes + vucevic + nocioni for Amare (+j jordan)

Hawes is on that one year deal and the Knicks already have chandler at center. Plus i doubt the knicks trade away amare within the division.

I like how Iggy is fitting in line with his pippenesque roll on the team, but we need someone to carry the load. If we had a premier talent we would've won that clippers game, but no one wanted to put the team on their back.

Right now we have some great depth at all positions

Jrue Lou
meeks turner
iggy thad
brand lavoy
hawes vucevic that is a legit 10 players who are goiing to get double digit minutes for us. Out of that group who do you part with? Personally i include turner in any deal for a legit 2guard or power forward that can help this team.
