I'd rather just take Okafor and figure out the rotation with him than give him to New York. They literally have nothing of value to trade.

Russell wants to be here. No way do I believe 1 random source.

(the source says he cancelled a "meeting," not a workout. This does not matter.)

Yeah, I agree with this. I don't want NY to get him either. So the trade down would be with someone else who wants him. But agree that I'd just keep it simple and friggin draft him.

@PompeyOnSixers
D'Angelo Russell canceled this weekend's visit and workout for the #Sixers, according to multiple sources.

we should probably remember Pompey is the same bozo who said Embiid was three hundo when he wasn't three hundo.

Maybe his agent got him tickets to game 5 or 6 in the finals

Is it possible at all that the Sixers put this out there (with Russell aware of it) to make it seem like they aren't going to take him now? Meanwhile he really does privately work out for them and they take him at 3 if he's there. Didn't they try some sort of sneaky arrival/exit with Wiggins last year?

Not saying this is what happened, but it's just odd that he was supposedly already in town today and canceled just before the meeting/workout.

ESPN...


There has been no explanation as to why Russell canceled his workout, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Could it be because Russell won't be around when the Sixers pick at No. 3? According to ESPN's Chad Ford, there have been rumblings about Minnesota drafting Russell No. 1 and trading current PG Ricky Rubio.

I guess the downside to being the team with the most future assets is that you are the team that everyone wants to mentally f with to try to extract them from you. Luckily I think Hinkie is the smartest guy in the room.

Towns to MIN and Okafor to LA makes so much sense that I just find it really hard to believe any of this stuff

It just reminds me of last year. Every day it was the Cavs may take Parker, they may trade the pick, and in the end it went the way most thought after Embiid got injured. Now of course the Cavs traded Wiggins after Lebron happened, but that was a unique situation.

Still think it is Towns, Okafor, Russell.

Yea that's where I'm at.

Hinkie is going to Gilooly Towns anyway and then swoop him up at three.

I disagree that Okafor to LA is so logical. A front court of Randle & Okafor going forward would be weak defensively. I wouldn't want the Sixers to build around a front court like that.
