Something tells me we moved Nerlens to give Covington a new contract

I'm usually not as hard on Oak as most sixers fans..but those plays tonight was inexcusable.And I know it's still early but Noel isn't looking that great for Dallas..He still have a lot of work to do on his game..and I'm starting to think throwing 20 million at him would have been a bad move going forward.
post #818 of 875

Y'all really think he would have commanded 20 mill?

post #819 of 875
Bismack Biyombo just got 18 million per year..I can't see how Noel don't command at least that.
post #820 of 875
We traded Noel because he's a free agent this summer that would have cost us $20+ mill per year just as Embiid insurance when we have a guy in Richaun Holmes on an extremely cheap contract that does a lot of the same things just as good. I also believe the reason we're holding out Embiid for the rest of the year is so we can showcase Okafor as a starter to other teams the rest of the season to get his trade value up. If we played Embiid and kept Noel then we would have either sold Okafor for cheap or even if we kept him then he would have rode the bench and his value would be even worse.

I swear to god, we better be all in on winning as many games as possible starting next season though. This is the last season of this BS. I'm not trying to see Embiid and Simmons both on minute restrictions and both being held out of back to backs and missing games while they're completely healthy. Embiid is going to be up for a damn new contract in a year or two and we've only played the guy 30 times in 3 ******* seasons.

Embiid won't have it. I swear if they try and hold that man back he's going berserk. He's a competitor and after all he's been through I'm sure he's ready to stomp somebody out right now let alone next season.

 

I understand the patience though. Logically it makes sense. It's just a pain in the *** to wait even longer. Our team is playing at the highest level its played in about 5 years WITHOUT it's two best players. Saric is a stud, Embiid is going to be a top 5 player possibly top 3, Simmons is gonna run this offense so smoothly, RoCo is averaging 17 and 7 with 3, count them 3, steals over his last 10, and TJ is proving to be a capable back up.

 

Then we've got a treasure chest of top 10 picks in the next few years to add into the mix. Let everybody gel for a few years, bring in some vets through FA, you may not even need an All Star FA. By then, LeBron is out of his prime, possibly out of the league, and no one else in the east is locking the entire conference down the way he has so the way I see it, we're a top 3 team by 2020.

 

The future is so bright, but the process is aggravating as all hell. Tired of looking 3-4 years into the future. I want something right now.

post #822 of 875
That is exciting and the optimism is awesome. But it's all up to management to put it together and not mess up. Colangelo has one of the best jobs in the league and was put in such a favourable position but he has been getting a failing grade so far.

Noel's first start with the Mavs

He looked good but Justin Anderson also outplayed Melo last night, hit basically the game winner and already looks like a fan favorite in the making at a position of need.

Only way we regret the Noel trade in the long run is if Embiid goes down again next year and shows we can't count on him for the future.

Sure, but you are looking at a guy who's ceiling is 8th man vs a potential DPOY/ Marcus Campy type of player (if Noel get's a jump shot)

I think the franchise already regretted the move before it was pulled out, or else BC would have been more honest in his press release instead of sugar coating it.

The only way we don't regret it is if we get trade those picks in a package with Jah to get a decent return or if we actually draft a steal (which no one can predict).

Even if you disagree with his potential, he's worth a lot more than two 2nd round picks. You can't argue that. and no, I am still not over it.
post #828 of 875
Dallas has a bright future if Seth keeps playing at this level.
post #829 of 875
Anderson with 19 against the Mavs.
Those shots of Cuban was LOL.

Not sure if I should be happy we're playing well or mad at us dropping in the standings.
Guess I'm just hoping the lakers somehow drop to 4th in the draft.
post #830 of 875
And I wonder how silver feel about the Suns and Lakers shutting down completely healthy players.
post #831 of 875
I've said alllllll damn year Holmes was the guy that made Noel expendable. And Justin Anderson has the chance to be a tremendous role player and fan favorite for us for years to come. No he's not going to be a star player, but he has a chance to be a PJ Tucker type of player that can help us win a lot of games. Everybody keeps acting like we ONLY got two 2nd round picks and just negate the fact we got him. **** is annoying every time I read somebody say that.
post #832 of 875
Anderson has definitely proved me wrong so far. Not eem mad.

I think TLC is going to end up being a great pick in the 20's and potential 6th man of the year type player off the bench in his prime

edit: Holmes just swatted the **** out of Jaylen Brown laugh.gif

I love this whole team. They're going to be phenomenal role players for us in a year or two when we're a playoff team if we're able to keep them around. We need to extend Holmes contract asap before he costs a billion dollars next year.

So does Dario still start when Ben and Jojo come back next season?

Absolutely. Him and Ben can both be interchangeable at the 3 and 4 really.
post #837 of 875
Everybody projected Saric to have a sixth man type role. I think he has more the proven his value as a starter. Saric has a very high IQ and very high motor. I just love watching him play. I think he would need to be a more consistent shooter for them to co-exist together. That lineup would also need to have deadeye shooters at the wings (Monk!).

I am not too worried about Simmons and Saric offensively, it's whether or not Simmons can hold his own defensively.

Big game in Philly today vs Orlando now in OT.

I need Philly to lose as ORL and PHI are 4 and 5 in lottery projections lol #Racetothebottom

post #840 of 875
Great game by Philly. Holmes hit that clutch three in overtime (didn't know he had that in him). But we got the loss which puts as a half game to 4th place. lol
