Default Philly is Attempting to get Yi Jianlian

Quote:
Philadelphia 76ers general manager Billy King has said that this likely won't be the final roster the Sixers take into training camp.

The Sixers could try to deal for Chinese power forward Yi Jianlian, who was selected sixth by the Milwaukee Bucks in Thursday's draft. If Yi's representatives balk at going to Milwaukee, the Sixers, who attempted to acquire Yi on draft night, could be back in the picture.

Is Philly the ideal place for Yi?

They can incorporate Jason Smith in the trade for Yi.

T. Young is a project and Byars has upside. But Carney is a hilight reel waiting to happen.

add to that our 2 best scorers...Iggy and KK. We gotta get rid of him for sure, and probably Bobby Jones. Cuz even tho he can be a defensive specialist, Byars is about as good but is far superior offensively

don't get me wrong, i like Carney, but i like Young more. He just is the odd man out...SHOULDA TOOK MARCUS WILLIAMS LAST YEAR! i was cool with the Carney pick, but if we were gonna take another wing this year then y take Carney?

Thaddeus young is just as much of a highlight reel.

Carney will be good but they shud deal him while he has value right now.

He would look great in PHOENIX,DALLAS,or golden state.

Rodney Carney wont be a Sixer next season. He's gonna need to showoff in the summer league.

He would be a decent fit for the Sixers considering their pass-first oriented point guard, Andre Miller. He'd get many touches from the field and could be a potential ROY winner. He posesses a dangerous shot anywhere from 15-20 feet, which fits perfectly with Miller running the offense. Their line-up would be a major talent.

On the plus side, they have the pieces to acquire him. Probably would take Jason Smith, Willie Green and a pick or so.

PG - Andre Miller
SG - Andre Iguodala
SF - Thaddeus Young
PF - Yi Jianlian
C - Samuel Dalembert
