Default Greg Monroe

12 points 12 assists 7 reb in 31 minutes. that's imprssive from a center.

he's got a good feel for the game. he's very polished. i like him a lot, oddly enough he reminds me a lot of a bigger version of jeff green. he won't be a 1st option in the NBA but he'll be a very nice complimentary player on a good team.

I hope the Sixers draft this kid.

Speights and Monroe = Philadelphia's Twin Towers 2010

yes that would be ideal. monroe compliments speights really well...although i think monroe is the kind of player that compliments a lot of good post players.

Sixers would be a playoffs team if they draft Greg Monroe this year. I hope they trade Elton Brand and Samuel Dalembert in the off season.

sixers would be stupid if they draft Greg Monroe, their front line rotation is already too stacked ( Dalembert, Brand, Speights, Young, J.Smith). They need a swingman who can shoot threes well. They need a Xavier Henry or James Anderson.

Me too. I hope they can unload one of those contracts before the deadline. I'd honestly be willing to part with Iggy (who is a nice but overpaid player) if it means they could rid themselves of one of those awful contracts. Brand at least doesn't hurt the team even though his deal is much longer.

I'd like to blow the entire thing up minus Speights, Young, Jrue, Jason Smith.

Get an extra first rounder, draft Monroe, and another nice player.

Sign a Joe Johnson. Maybe get a veteran PG...They should really try and pry Kyle Lowry, he's a philly guy and seriously good/underrated.

There you have it, a 45-50 win team.

If the Sixers spend a top 10 draft pick on James Anderson, they'll be sorry.

20-25 win team right there.

Monroe is decent, but I would take Cousins over him every time.

Whatever GM drafts him better be ready for the onslaught of "Jesus why can't Monroe be aggressive?!," "Look to score Monroe!," "Does Monroe even care?" from his fanbase.

Just because you have a lot of big bodies doesn't mean the position is "stacked". Maybe we shouldn't draft John Wall because we already have Holiday, Lou, Royal Ivey, Willie Green, and Iverson? Stacked.

LOL yeah that 'stacked' frontcourt has exactly 1 good player, and he doesn't even start.
