Re: a trade idea
In first stance, I'd say yes. But I'd have to take a close look at if that 5th pick is worth loosing MoSpeezy. I'm not a fan of Blatche.
So let's say Philadelphia gets the 5th pick. Who do we draft? If somehow Kings let Rubio slide, the trade is definitely worth it. Philadelphia's market and roster is good enough to keep his agent from b*tching about staying in Europe. And he'd be the much needed PG, although he wouldn't solve the range issue.
The player Sixers would realistically be looking at is Stephen Curry. He may be a bit of a reach at #5, but most draft sites have him going at #7~#9 so it's good. And he would solve the range problem as well as the PG situation, although he is more of a combo guard.
All in all, I'd be very tempted to do it...
