Are sixers signing Steve Smith and what about Edin Bovcic did they sign him
I was wondering what's the deal with the sixers not signing anyone. They can sign Steve Smith easily because he wants to play for philly and what about there rookie they got from the raptors Edin Bovcic are they gonna sign him or let him develop in europe?
Ya i think they will sign Steve Smith unless they are pursuing other people. Steve's hometown is Philly so there is not problem there. He will come to training camp and then will probably get a partially guaranteed contract. Edin is gonna be left in Europe for a while. From what I heard, he is a good shooter. Evans in Philly is a nice idea. There is a need for a backup PF.
The last poster got it right. Smith will have to beat out the other two camp invitees. I think he will make our roster of 15, but will be on the IR most of the season. Brunsen will probably make it as well. As for our team, well ESPN's Mark Stein has us rated 29th out of 30 teams...Huh ? Look, I know we aren't all that, but 2nd to last ? I feel we are in the 16th to 20th range. And if our team concept can change, meanning Ivy learns that he has other teammates, and whether or not Ivy will actually try to play defense, as well as the rest of them will determine if we make a run at the playoffs. I still feel that Carney was a bad pick in the draft considering Cedric Simmons was still there. Webber is a stiff. Can't play at all in the paint anymore, or even tries to. And defensively he may be the worst PF in the league. Simmons is very young yes, but he is a great 6ft, 9 Athlete with Incredible defensive skills. Randolph is okay, but is nothing special. And will never be close to ever being a NBA starter.
Edin will stay in Europe for a couple of more years to develope. If he does, great for us. But that's a huge if. Can't wait til the 10th when we play our first pre-season game.
yeah, i cant believe he had us taht low, its pathetic. We could easily be a low playoff seed, so im sayin at worst 18th or 20th in that range. We were hangin right with nj, washington, and cleveland with 24 games to go and went 8-16 in the final 24, we can hang with them. Carney wasnt a BAD pick, but i wanted ronnie brewer(cuz he plays d and can play 1,2 and 3) marcus williams to play the pg with ai at sg, or ced simmons. But i like carney too.
