Biggest win last night for sixers was clippers not jumping into top 3 with either or both their picks. Makes LA Clips much less attractive to lebron and George. Also makes a kwahi deal much much much more difficult.

Really good night for us.

Maybe I'm being a homer, but I have a hard time seeing a better fit for Lebron than the Sixers. Especially given what's happened in the first 2 games of the Cavs-Boston series.

The ultimate homer offseason - add Bridges, DiVincenzo, Carr, and LeBron.

With the Suns and Kings getting lotto luck, will the Lakers even have a top 5 young core in the NBA? Top 10, maybe? If any of these top guys go there this summer it won't be for basketball reasons.

And winning a title with a young team and protege is best for his legacy, just as returning to Cleveland was four years ago

Exactly.

It's the one thing he hasn't done. Houston is a Miami-redux and he will take a hit for that. The Lakers are far worse off than the Sixers and play in the west. Cleveland's supporting cast is a mess.

Sixers are the perfect fit. God I want this to happen.

From Sporting News mock:

10. 76ers (via Lakers) — Mikal Bridges, SG/SF, Villanova

Age: 21.7 | Height: 6-7 | Weight: 210

Realistically, this is a dream scenario for Philadelphia, as the front office should be looking for additional shooting on the wing. Bridges is one of the draft’s elite spot-up shooters, having converted 43.5 percent of his 3s last season.

The 21-year-old is also an excellent team defender. He uses his length and high basketball IQ to be a disruptive presence off the ball both in passing lanes and at the rim. Bridges is basically the perfect piece for a Philadelphia roster already oriented around Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid.

I don't think there's anyway they put another guaranteed contract on the books prior to free agency beyond 10. Maybe if Allen agrees to play in Europe for a year.

Allen and Bayless shipped off to some team hopefully.

Not sure how good the mocks are, definitely better than NBA but there are always some big surprises.

Issue is first round picks count against the cap until they agree to not play in the NBA that year. Whereas I believe 2nd round picks basically don't count until they sign.

They need to take an honest look at whether, Holmes, JA, TLC and Furk are going to contribute next year. If not they need to be shipped rather than wasting space like what happened with stauskas and Okafor.

Wonder if Dallas in full rebuild would be interested in trading down from #5 to #10 and grabbing #26 and two 2nds

They are someone with cap space that could take Bayless.

Hawks too.

Guessing trade chart wouldn't like that for them if one exists.
