Sixers Need To Continue Stockpiling First-Round Picks76ers, BREAKING NEWS, News Wednesday, July 10th, 2013
White was a major headache for the Rockets since the day they drafted him. Hinkie was involved in drafting White, when he was with the Rockets. The move really is small gamble by Hinkie. Like I said before, the Sixers also received cash in the trade, which will likely cover White’s salary, if the kid can’t get over his anxiety. To be honest, I don’t see the kid helping the Sixers at all. He will likely be in the D-League. I hope that the kid can keep his anxiety disorder under control for his sake (everyday life). I know some people that deal with anxiety issues and I feel for them. At the end of the day though, it was just a FAVOR.
In other news, there were reports out that the Sixers were involved in the Dwight Howard sweepstakes. They were trying to help the Warriors free up money to get Dwight, by receiving the expiring contracts of Richard Jefferson ($11 million) and Andris Biedrins ($9 million). So what was in it for the Sixers? They could have received a few first round draft picks, including one in next year’s draft (2014). BUT Biedrins, Jefferson, and two first round picks (2014 and 2017) went to Utah and Dwight went to the Rockets. End of that story.
Would the Sixers do a sign in trade with Bynum? The Mavericks and Cavs are hot on Bynum. The Heat could really use someone in the middle as well. Dallas has Shawn Marion’s expiring contract and the Heat have Shane Battier and Rashard Lewis’ expiring contracts. By the way, the reports on Bynum is that he needs time to think about the Cavs offer (2 years, $24 million). Ha…this dude.
In ending, whatever the Sixers do I am cool with. As long as we get a first round pick back.
