Talking Re: Philly is Attempting to get Yi Jianlian

Iggy and YI would be a Sweet Combination for the Philadelphia 76ers.

GOBB will surely be proud of this Current player movement.

Does Philly have a large asian population?

They weren't listed on the 'preferred teams' list, which I believe was Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, and Golden State.

I don't see a link to where the original quote came from but I'm guessing it's just a beat writer throwing out the possibility. "The Sixers could try to deal for Chinese power forward Yi Jianlian," that doesn't sound like 'Philly IS attempting to get Yi Jianlian' IMO.

Milwaukee was very high on Yi. I think it will have to take Smith, Carney, and a pick. Either way, I would do it. It would be a nice addition.

an Atlantic contender maybe?

if i were Philly i'd roll the dice tho. Iggy is not built to be a first option. maybe Yi can turn into a true threat. right now their squad will be at the bottom of the Atlantic for quite a while. they need help.

well, we get one of the point guards in this year's draft(Rose prefereably, then Lawson, Augustin, Collison, Reynolds).

That would give us 4 really good young players, all of whom could be great. And Dalembert is a very solid center. By then, the Nets big 3 will be a big 2, Kidd will be gone and Carter will be older. Boston's big 2 will not be in their prime anymore. I like our chances...

Yi and his peoples allowed the Sixers to watch him workout. The only teams who did were the teams they said they would allow Yi to play for. So no its not just some beat writer throwing out jargon. Sixes have attempted to move up numerous times with the focus on landing Yi who has given them all go aheads because he would sign there if drafted. The issue is if Milw is still entertaining trades from other teams...which it appears they are not. The back in the hunt is created by people who put 2 and 2 together. No lock, no gurantee but if Milw decides to move Yi? Philly is a destination.

So basically every team that watched him and liked him is "attempting to get Yi"? Pure speculation, not even a 'rumor' at this point...

Wow what about PRIVATE WORKOUTS dont you get?

Yeah every team had Yi work out for them. Talk about pure speculation or is that considered talkin out your ass? I'll be nice and let you decide.

I'm not doubting that Yi wouldn't mind playing for Philly (I asked in my first post about the asian population because I wasn't sure) OR that Philly MIGHT try to get him.

My point is that at the moment this is hardly "Philly is attempting to get Yi". There's a handful of teams that are in the same boat, but there's no 'news' on them "attempting to get Yi".

Like I said, this isn't even a 'rumor' at this point with a writer saying 'a league source said the Sixers are trying to acquire Yi from Milwaukee'. It's just some guy (where's this quote from again?) saying that "The Sixers could try to deal for Chinese power forward Yi Jianlian."

It's an idea. Not news, not even a rumor, an idea from whoever wrote that original quote.

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

Salivating over that line-up. Lacks range but I think Miller at point can make it work.
