Oh Yeah,The Sixers
It seriously feels like basketball hasn't ended. The Bucks one and we just flipped the switch to the new league season. Any-who, so begins a sure to be odd and very important next few weeks in Sixers basketball (stop me if you heard that before).
1. Ben Simmons
This very well may be outdated by the time you see it, but the latest from Woj is that the Sixers are armed and dangerous with a steep asking price for Ben's services. Not exactly a blockbuster, we knew that. The gem is that for the first time, we got public confirmation that Ben and his agent Rich Paul are on board with a change of scenery. I know the Sixers are motivated and public knowledge now being that Ben and co are on board, have to wonder how long the clock ticks before the trigger is pulled. Either way let's get this party started.
My very best guess is they win the sweepstakes. Masai Ujiri is ballsy enough to talk himself into being able to "fix" Simmons and I think they are due for some roster turnover anyway. So yes, let's bring DeAndre' Bembry home. Godspeed.
3. Morey Watch
I know eyes of the universe are on Ben at the moment but I think it bears watching to see what else Daryl Morey has up his sleeves. He's cut from a similar, "don't show your whole hand" card like Sam Hinkie so I wouldn't be surprised at all if there's 2 or 3 other things being worked on/talked about.
4. If they pick at 28
There's been so much talk about this being moved so I begrudgingly haven't allowed myself to get attached to one specific player but if they stay it's because they either didn't hatch the deal that they wanted or decide to back out because a guy they really like dropped in their laps, Maxey style.
The Rest From The Best
Some of these I would do, some I'm indifferent on and others I haven't even thought about. The always awesome Mike O'Connor has 11 ways to fix the NBA.
I've said this in not so eloquent terms before but I urge any and all to read. Andrew Unterberger speaks for many of us when he says that the healing can't begin until Ben is gone.
This is Samwell. Samwell is a rescue who now lives in Plymouth Meeting after hailing from the great Northeast. Samwell now sleeps on a real bed that supports his joints, a Big Barker. Lucky for him his parents ordered at bigbarker.com/ricky so he got TWO Process Pup patches. Do it for your dog.
