I don't know why Philly would do a deal like that, but I'm all for it. Faster, please!
If the Raptors trade Demar Derozan then everyone should be fired, and for andre igoudala?? Wow I must not be watching the same nba as everyone else, I'm pretty sure james johnson can do the same things that he can do. DD is a future superstar and if nothing else, he's a walking highlight reel.
i don't think we need williams now unless he is stepping in to start for dd. iggy is far superior to johnson. i can see a ed/amir, jj and bayless for iggy deal now that they got rid of brand. might want to get rid of other large contracts and get ready for next years free agent crops.
seems like team building is all about tearing everything down as fast as possible to free up money and grab as many picks in one or two years as possible and then swinging for as many free agents as you can.
thanks miami. i think i heard that the league wanted more player movement and trades.
i don't want to trade dd but if the reason for keeping him is highlight reel plays then iggy has him beat everytime
Highlights win you championships!!! Forget DeRozan and Iggy, let's go after Hot Sauce and Da Professor...
I am not sure what the normal expectations are for the 9th pick in mediocre drafts but I think people are way too hard on Demar. I think everyone needs to take a step back and get some perspective.
I for one am not a big fan of Bargnani but judge I he is a good player I don't give a rat's ass if he was the #1 pick that was 6 years ago. Move on and judge your team and players as they play.
But if a trade comes along for a relatively known quantity in return I say go for it rather than hoping he lives up to potential. Hopefully it works out for us.

Now tell me why Andrea (earning 10million/year) is preferred over Demar or Calderon?
And lets compare Eric gordon to Demar for fun. We know who is the better player
Demar regressed this year because he is 4th option on a good team but was being used as our first option.
2 year rent on a great leader for scrubs, has-beens and never-will-be's is a good trade.
If you get LW and AI back, you get a tweener that can do a good enough job at point and is better than anyone we have at 2, and one of the top defensive 3's in the game right now. We need to stop getting so attached to these not so great players.
Id rather have a young group of players let them develop and see what we got(and dont tell me our team has reached their ceiling...otherwise i cant even talk)...why gamble on ur future for a guy who wont make us relevent...and at best barely a playoff team.
I dont get how AI is a great leader...he is good player but dont expect if we get him we can do anything with him. phili has loads of talent and they beat a roseless bulls....not that promising imo
Now the Sixers have a glut of SF's in Wright, Igoudala, Turner and Harkless. That's five if you consider Thad Young as a SF as well. It's true that some of them can play SG or PF, but five 6-6 to 6-8 players with similar body types is too much in my opinion. A trade to the Raptors perhaps?
