Fair point ...
...but I think they were looking more for a pick and roll team (Jrue and Bynum) with floor spacing from all those tweeners they have....
They also have (Miami's pick) Moultrie (spelling ?) as an inside option with a 10 foot shot.
I think what holds up the deal even more is inside division let alone conference. If a deal were truly there I would have suspected Philly to make a real serious run at Jose Calderon to give Jrue some back up.
