It's the NBA Jameer,

If they're not then who is? At some point we have to take a shot in the dark because what we're doing right now isn't good enough.

except we don't know if wiggins is that guy. orlando was a better team than they showed last year. they could very well make the playoffs next year if vaughn doesn't f*ck with the lineups like he did this year.

I think next year we would have a team that's good enough to crack 7 or 8 in the east POTENTIALLY. But we won't get higher than that. We may not tank fully but we aren't in play for any free agents this year, I imagine we will use next year to see how the line up of youth play and then use that offseason to sign vets to fill the gaps and then try and make a run at the play offs for real.

If we sit tight right now our young guys will jump ship. A rookie is only going to stay on his team so long if it doesn't look like their going anywhere. I'm not sold on wiggins and i personally probably prefer Parker but both of them look like they will be solid even if they don't hit star level. We lose Afflalo and a couple of picks that were less likely to be home runs.

Trade makes sense if they think Embiid can recover and if he is still there at 4.

Other than that...it's really risky.

Rockets already have a centre why would they want another?

Cleveland should run with that, as long as Embiid is there. Afflalo gives you what the top 2 do anyway, then Embiid is a free coin flip

I don't see Embiid going top 4 anymore, if his injury is as career threatening as it seems and has been for past players I could see him dropping pretty far. Hell even if Embiid went they would still have Exum, Wiggins or Parker. If it looks like Embiid will go top 3 then the trade doesn't work for either team because Orlando could sit tight and take one of the three they want too.
