Default What type of player do the Sixers need more than anything else?

What type of player do the Sixers need more than anything else right now to move up to the next level?

Don't name a name, like saying "Tim Duncan" would be silly. But what position, and what type of player, is needed?

A shooter (preferably at the SG position since it's our weakest) to spread the floor for our slashers (Young, Iguodala, Lou, Green).

Could also say a post presence but he's out for the year with a shoulder injury.

There's no doubt Sixers need a shooter. I think Korver was a great shooter, but Sixers's traded him.

A shooter and since it looks like Andre Miller will be leaving we will be in need of a point guard here soon.

Do you really want him as philly's starting point guard? Or for that matter, as a full time PG? Don't get me wrong, I like Lou. But I think he can help Sixers the most coming off the bench as a combo guard.

Stefansky better have already a plan for Sixers' PG spot, either getting Dre another deal or finding a substitute.

In an ideal world, the Sixers get a super star and a dominant scorer since outside of the one championship won by the Pistons, you can't win an NBA title in modern times without a true superstar. However, being that it's highly unlikely they will get a super star player, their most likely need will either be a PG to replace Miller, or a quality shooter to bring off the bench to stretch the floor - ideally someone who can play passable defense.
