The question is the better core it's also a stupid question since 4 guys 2 from each have never played a NBA game and two from each team that made all NBA rookie team. Noel might be better that's up for debate he's a good player but it's not near as clear cut as you make it seem Clarkson is good too.

Back to the core a PG a SG and a PF is a better core than a pf and 2 centers no matter how good Noel is

Embiid is a better prospect than anyone on LA. Will he play? Who knows.
Okafor is arguable, but he was consensus #1 for a LONG time.
Noel >> Clarkson impact wise and stats wise.

Core really doesn't matter. They are all prospects, if the Sixers need to trade them they will. Basically we're rating their trade value.

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.

It does because that's the question. Not their trade value

Otherwise good post insight. Don't agree with everything but good post

Hmm. Fair enough. 6ers don't have a guard prospect but I'd still take their trade value.

Correction it is four first round picks (Sixers, Laker - top 3 protected, Heat - top 10 protected, OKC - top 15 protected). Heck, Hinkie might get some more first round picks this year just by absorbing another team bad contract.
