Seems Bridges is unlikely at this point…I also doubt Batum is moved. He would be great though

Miles Bridges, Nic Batum or bust for me, really. I think this team really needs another front court impact player and maybe a guard to take the minutes away from shit for brains. None of the other scrubs mentioned moves the needle at all.

Ya, I fear they won’t want to sell though on the slight chance Embiid comes back. They probably should though

Are the chances really that slight? All I can find in the news is that he’ll be reevaluated in four weeks, at which point there will still be a lot of time left in the season.

Maybe not…I just know he had surgery today. Not sure what kind of surgery. If they think he’s got a decent chance being ready in 4 weeks then that changes things.

I can't see 4 weeks. 6 minimum.

Regardless of Embiid's injury, Nick Nurse will keep them competitive enough in the regular season to warrant the illusion of contention.

Figured I would put this here, due to his connection with Wayman Tisdale. RIP Toby. :(



And now his song for Wayman can apply to him as well. :cry:

Here’s my list:

Best case scenario: Kyle Anderson

Other positives: Reggie Bullock, Royce O’Neale, Saddiq Bey, Torrey Craig

Meh: Jae’Sean Tate, KJM, Jeff Green

Who else has been mentioned? I’m just leaving Bridges off for now.
I'd be happy with Torrey Craig and/or Royce O'Neale. But I really don't want to give up any of our guys who are actually playing minutes. I don't want Miles Bridges but I've said that many times by now. Kyle Anderson would also be fine. Not sure any of these guys are much better than the guys we have on our bench like Little, KBD, Okogie, etc. Maybe better than Yuta, but Yuta isn't playing. I wish we could grab a backup guard who could run the bench offense, but it doesn't sound like that is one of our targets.

I do think there’s something to be said for not just giving up Little. We better get a rotation player for moving his contract. It’s the only cheap, controllable contract we have.

Yuta and Metu are probably the most expendable. Maybe Goodwin too. If we’re getting a big back I’d have no problem moving Eubanks as well.

I do agree I’d prefer to hang onto KBD and Okogie. They aren’t great but they are passable at the moment.

Gambo says we want a 4 that can defend but also shoot the ball, trying to think of underwhelming players that fit that bill…

I would take Crowder, but I don’t think Milwaukee is trading him

Haven't kept up with him but 2021 Jae would be perfect.

If I could freeze the standings right now I would

1. Clippers
2. Thunder
3. Wolves
4. Nuggets
5. Kings
6. Suns

7. Pels
8. Mavs
9. Lakers
10. Jazz

We’d get Wolves in round 1 and Thunder in round 2. Nuggets-Clips in round 2.
