They still ended up with a lot of cap space and they had to clear out time for Evan Turner to play to figure out if he is worth a long term contract.
Exactly and i'd do this trade again and again.
Sixers have a chance to have $38mil in cap space next season, two first rd picks more than likely lottery in a good draft class. They also have assets to move in Evan Turner, Hawes (expirer) as well. In a good position to rebuild or...be like the Cavs living in the lottery until they strike gold. The irony.
I've always said and people who bump threads/search posts can do their homework. Sixers either need to deal for a franchise caliber talent or start over because staying in mediocrity has run its course. I was upset at Jrue trade before I realized the bigger picture. Sixers keep Jrue and they are not bad enough to get a top lottery pick, not good enough to get past rd 1 of playoffs. Whether Noel, MCW were good picks? Remains to be seen.
Noel coming off a knee injury and from what I read Suns red flagged the kids knee. Suns medical staff has a good rep. Not sure what to make of a guy like Noel, at best you hope he can resemble Noah. MCW didnt impress me much in college. But now I get to sound like RBA as I type future is bright, rest assured the ship is sailing in the right path.
Bynum didnt work out. It happens, the Sixers are now in position to get things right or look like the Charlotte Bobcats. I'm not upset at this path at all. Sixers trading Jrue took another BIG RISK as they decide to tank without saying they are tanking. How can fans not be in favor of taking big risks?
