Simmer down now, we ain't Dunn yet -Sixers path to the draft

i think he should've been more visible when the okafor trouble was taking place, but other then that i'm not sure what would've been gained. every time he spoke to the media he gave in-depth and informative answers, while clearly explaining the path they were on. that path didn't change week to week so i'm glad he spent his time doing something productive instead of giving sound bites to dumbasses like marcus hayes and john smallwood.

thankfully colangelo talks to the media though. now i know embiid might or might not be ready for summer league and might or might not play if he is ready. i also learned saric might or might not come over. can't wait to hear about guys they might or might not sign.

I think that trade is still as speculative and possible as it ever was?

I feel like the Dunn chatter has been overtaken by the Murray chatter. Fake trade is about as real as a clip-on tie on Colangelo's gigantic collars.

I suspect Ainge will end up trading the 3 pick but only for what he perceives to be the highest bidder/best package.

And he won't do it until he's sure the lakers don't let Ingram drop.

if I had to guess, I'd say we end up trading Okafor for a veteran guard that we haven't even considered

Colangelo said Embiid will not play summer league.

BC says they want Simmons to visit Philly for a meeting/workout but the agent has been declining. (They declined LA too)

BC also said Embiid will be with the Summer League teams as a spectator, and Saric is 50/50 but is excited about the additions of Embiid and Simmons

"Ingram has the highest draft grade, based on total projected SPM, and he is most likely to play at the level of an All-Star or starter during his first five seasons."

can't argue with SPM
