I'm not confident that the Sixers will unload the pick, but if expirings is what the Sixers are after, I would do it. Not because I'm a huge Brand fan, but because Evan Turner could be just what this team needs going forward. In Brand, we would get a like-minded veteran (Want to win now and prove to people I've still got it) to go along with Crash and Jack. In Turner we'd get a guy that could assist with the biggest issue no one is talking about: Fewer minutes for both Jack and Crash. When Jack's contract expires we'd have someone ready to step in and become the face of the franchise.
If this "shopping" is legit, I suspect a draft pick would need to be returned, which would obviously be a potential deal breaker for us.
I'm not as convinced as some regarding Turner, instead looking at this only from a projected role-filling perspective.
The 76ers would be more inclined if a pick (this year) was coming back...we might be able to do something if we buy one of the 20ish picks available...it would certainly make the expiring contracts we have more appealing...just a thought...
Bobcats trade: Jax, Tyrus, DJ, Henderson, Tyson, Naz ($38+)
Bobcats get: Brand, #2, Nene, JR smith, Lou Williams ($38.6)
We take on long term salary but for the most part get a lot younger
76ers trade:Brand,#2, Lou Williams ($21.3)
76ers get: Henderson, DJ, Tyson ($17.75)
They dont want brand...they also want to move williams long term deal since drafting jrue...dj an jrue can battle for the position...again they would have a lot of cap room next year...ppl said we should buy a pick an package that with tyson, but adding henderson an dj is like giving them 2 first round picks
Nuggets trade: Nene, JR smith ($17.3)
Nuggets get: Jax, Naz, Tyrus ($21.6)
Ok still don't know if nuggets would do this...but they get a much better SG in jackson vs. JR...plus they add tyrus, who they have been wanting...after next year, if they decide to move lawson up to starter an not pick up the option on billups, they will have $36.5 million coming off the books JUST by losing billups(old), Kmart(not the same), Naz(old) alone...plus if Melo decides to go to NY, then that means they would have $53 million in cap from 4 players...while still having a core of lawson, jax, tyrus, birdman
