Hey, they wanted the GM to be more forthcoming with information, and they sure as hell got it.

Fultz's body language is so bad, he looks like somebody just took his lunch money.

Jimmy Butler for Saric, Cov and a 2nd. Huge upgrade as a team now, but who knows how it looks a few years from now I do like the move though.

That unprotected first is a big potential hedge against future concerns.

Fultz apparently just half demanded a trade saying he would rather have a fresh start on a new team. I'm actually in tears from laughing

There is some weird rumors going on that he's going through an attorney right now instead of an agent? Nobody knows what is going on, but him and the Sixers have done everything they can to ruin a career.

His agent is also an attorney. It’s weird that the reporter described him as an attorney, not as his agent

Honestly with Wall being out for the year, GSW being weird and starting internal shit I think the Sixers should offer up Fultz MIA 1st and whatever else to get Kemba or Beal. Re-sign them and just go all in into the luxory tax with Embiid, Simmons, Beal/Kemba and Butler. I genuinely think Brown has to go though he gets completely out coached at times it's embarrassing. In a pipe dream you pull Pop from SA, but a more realistic option would be Doc Rivers at the end of the season.

Keep Jimmy, let Tobias walk and spend that 20mil+ on an actual backup C, backup PG and legit wing players. Jimmy, Simmons and Embiid can win a chip if they give them the right role players. Harris is just awkward with our team since there is only one ball to go around. If Butler doesn't want to stay then you can keep Harris.

I definitely hope they keep Butler.

Arent Bobi and Harris a package deal anyway? Bobi is awesome and all, but not too great playing basketball.

Bobi is good offensively, but is a nightmare defensively and they probably are a package deal.

One of the greatest sporting achievements I have ever seen live was when Bobi hit a 3 pointer.

I'm pretty sure you can't just give Harris's money to someone else since they'll be at the cap.

Once Butler declines his player option the Sixers will have close to 50million in cap space. If they agree to a contract with Butler for an extension they can sign other FA's first then sign Butler to go over the cap and into the luxury tax. Also Jonathon Simmons' contract isn't guaranteed next season so if they really wanted to free up even more room they could.

You don't just get that cap space. As soon as Butler opts out, he turns into a $30 million cap hold. You can't renounce that and then sign him to go over the cap. So you're either cutting the cord on everyone to open up that cap space (and I don't think it gets you all the way to 2 max contracts), you're bringing back the whole lot of them, or you re-sign Butler and have $15-20 M to work with, but you basically lose both Harris and Redick in that scenario since you have to renounce their cap holds to do it.

Personally, I say bring them all back and use the MLE to get the backup C you need. If Scott and Ennis can stick around, I'm less concerned with wing depth since Zhaire should be able to contribute next year, and Shake is a wildcard there.

I misunderstood the cap completely, thanks for the info. I know the sample size is very small, but I'm still just not sold on Harris' fit with the team especially if he starts demanding a max. I just wish his money was put into a wing player instead of the 4 position, kind of a mute point now though.

Yeah I don’t think Harris is really worth the max, but if it’s essentially him or nobody, I feel like they might as well pay him. It’s not my money

CsC how are you feeling right now? This Horford move has be confused. He's 33 already and I can't see this contract aging well at all. I like getting Richardson back from Miami though

Insanity. I’m fine with overpaying Harris, I like bringing Scott back, I understand JJ jumping ship for all that money, and I can talk myself into butler for Richardson due to age, but horford makes no sense to me. Maybe there’s another shoe to drop? And who’s our bench PG?

I think next year the Sixers are potentially set up great. After that it's going to get more and more difficult, that being said if they somehow win a chip next season it's obviously worth it.

Zhaire Smith dunking on anybody and anything will be exciting to watch. Thybulle looks like he can contribute right away this season as well, love his defensive awareness.
