Choose Beal in the #2 pick.
Trade DJ Augustin and Hendo and maybe a expiring like Williams for #11 Portland´s pick.
Choose Zeller in the #11.
Trade Biyombo for Henson.
Sign veteran PG and SG for the backup in the free agency. Felton and Josh Howard/Belinelli for example.
I want Zeller and Henson together. Zeller can score and Henson is a good defender. I think Henson can improve more than Biyombo.

Even then I'd expect to still get the player we want, else we need to stand pat. We need quality something fierce.

my ideal trade would be to stay at 2 and get T-Rob,MKG or Barnes and use the 2nd rounder, portland 13 pick and whatever to move back in the 1st and get a Fab melo, Q miller, John Jenkins etc. or if we can trade with Cleveland and get their 4 and 24th. get our man with the 4th and use the 24th, 31st, portland 13 to move up further. or for quantity keep the 4th,24th and use 31st and portland's13 to move up.
I would love to leave the draft with at least 2 1st rounders
at the very best we could hope for would be dj, hendo, #31 and the blazers pick back for #6 and #11 or dj, 2013 pick back in exchange for #11.
i would explore tyreke evans, jason thompson and #5 for #2, #31 and mully
2. With Barnes and Zeller you would get two solid kids and solid nba rotation players. That'd be okay, I guess.
3. Barnes has a long way to go to be a "superstar". He can't do much off the dribble. He hasn't proven he can do much without Kendall Marshall next to him. I see him averaging around 15 points for 6-7 years, barring injury.
4. I'd rather get one "solid kid/safe pick"(Harrison or Zeller) with one guy who's a little higher risk/higher reward (T Jones, P Jones, Lamb, Lillard??).
There has to be some situation were we can take both Thomas Robinson and Jeremy Lamb right ?
My dream offseason as of right now:
1-Amnesty Tyrus. Just take the hit and move on.
2-Draft Robinson and Jenkins or Melo.
3-Philly wants to move Iggy. Maggette and the pick Portland owes us for Iggy works, and saves the Sixers a lot of money, and allows them to play their young guys.
4-Sign Jamison at a reasonable price.
5-One way or another, I think Augustin is out. If Andre Miller or Jerryd Bayless can be had for cheap, they would be a nice addition. Otherwise, I'm not sure about backup point guard.
6-Don't keep dead weight around. Higgens, I'm looking at you.
This plan isn't well thought out, but like I said, it's a dream. If the Sixers really want to make room for their younger guys without having a bad situation in the locker room, an expiring vet and a mid-round pick might get it done for Iggy. Using the amnesty on Tyrus isn't going to happen, but it would clear the way for Robinson and end the headache that Tyrus has been so far.
Feel free to go ahead and tear me apart!
