Going back to the convo from the previous thread. For me, it wasn't just BC but it seemed like the ownership was getting impatient and wanted more butts in the seats. I thought it was a definite possiblity that they would sign a few mid-level guys and squander the cap space. Granted, being able to draft Simmons may have given them time because fans may come out just to see him. Anyway, BC has been good so far but I still don't trust him and hate his stupid face.

And with 24 teams in the field for the largest event, ESPN will air all 67 games from Las Vegas across ESPN, ESPN2, ESPN3, ESPNU and WatchESPN.

I assume the summer league practices start tomorrow? May get to see Ben and Jo on the court together.
Two days later I get a text back that says I'm a basketball player and a businessman, not a Thundercat.

Oh OK, thanks.

NBA TV will probably air the games in Utah.

Does Simmons have to sign his contract before he can do the Summer League?

I read somewhere that Ben can't participate until he signs he Sixers contract, which he can't do before July 1 for some reason.

Hinkie wouldn't sign his 1st round picks for like a month after he drafted them to maintain flexibility. If Simmons doesn't play in summer league before signing it's because he doesn't want to. Rich Paul probably just wants to wrap it up asap and ensure that he gets 120% of slot. (Which he will)

Pretty interesting from a FB pal of mine

I made a list of the restricted and unrestricted free agents under 26 years old at the positions of SF, SG, and PG that I think the Sixers should be interested in. I added these 8 players to the 7 Sixers players in those positions that received meaningful playing time. I took three encompassing stats of player contribution (WinShares/48min, ValueOverReplacementPlayer, RealPlusMinus) normalized their values from these 15 players and then combined and averaged them into a single metric. I also cross referenced the metric rankings against rankings of the rankings of the three original stats and found them to be similar.

This doesn't consider present or future fit, value, or caps, but this is probably a good starting point for which free agents to consider.

Evan Fournier______SG/SF___1.184710732
Solomon Hill_________SF_____0.812154708
Robert Covington_____SF_____0.760389242
Matthew Dellavedova__PG_____0.637442175
Tyler Johnson________SG_____0.618794812
Langston Galloway____SG_____0.529462721
Allen Crabbe_________SG_____0.295370334
Troy Daniels_________SG_____0.104115471
Seth Curry_________PG/SG____0.020981693
Jerami Grant_________SF_____-0.208795386
T.J. McConnell________PG_____-0.270636317
Ish Smith____________PG_____-0.420539362
Hollis Thompson______SG_____-1.151016222
Isaiah Canaan______PG/SG____-1.185199624
Nik Stauskas_________SG_____-1.727244926

I assume the Magic are going to keep Fournier since he's the only shooter they have. cross him off the list, imo

I think they need a veteran guard as a mentor this year. How do Rubio, Beverly, Lin, Rondo, Lee, Collison, and Clarkson rank compared to the guys on his list? I'm somewhat interested in Ray McCallum from SA who I believe is a restricted FA.
Marquelle Fultz: (6/23) "My goal is to be the best player in the NBA."
Ben Simmons: (8/28) "My goal is to be the best in the league."
Don't fight, Embiid has this covered.
