Unless a team abroad offers him massive money, his biggest guaranteed payday will be to jump to the NBA in 2017 when the cap will $100M. He could legit target $9M/year on his first NBA deal. He's making close to #1 pick money in Turkey, so no reason to play NBA ball now at a massive discount (not that he could contractually). Hinkie's said he's coming next summer but who knows- money talks.
76ers have the greater stockpile of players, even if they are nearly all bigs (I think Covington has to be considered too, here). Lakers arguably have a better fitting core but I think collectively the trade value of Noel/Jahlil/Covington/Saric/Embiid > Russell/Clarkson/Randle/Nance/Brown. So maybe that's the way to decide?
Glamor market aside, I think I'd take the 76ers' core. Lakers' core is no joke though.
