If the sixers get first pick and draft wiggins and rankles gets taken who do you take next? Jus my idea
I was thinking a Gary Harris because there are no face up 4's left that won't clog the lanes of Noel I figure trade the two second round picks and move up to get Isaiah Austin great length may be having a down year but Baylor is winning. This kid brings great length and athleticism but he is real skinny but he has a 7'4 wingspan equal to Noel ,he's a great defensive rebounder.Also a good outside shooter to compliment Noel and doesn't clog the lane on offense . Gary Harris is a good defender and shooter along with wiggins and Austin seems like great rebuild jus my thoughts
Just some tips:
You might want to shorten the title up and use the "enter" button to separate chunks of information. Just to keep your paragraphs from looking like blobs.
Leaving spaces like this really makes it easier to read.
Using decent punctuation really goes a long way; you don't have to be perfect but at least try to make it legible.
I think Rankles should be available for the Sixers next pick.
Kool I'm using my iphone tho thanks
I don't like Isaiah Austin for the Sixers in the first round. He is not much different than Hawes, but Hawes is a proven contirbutor at the NBA level. And the Sixers already have a supposed high upside big man who doesn't possess the intensity or production to match his potential in Arnett Moultrie.
I think taking a wing would be nice. Gary Harris would be nice as would Rodney Hood, given how good Hood has looked in transition for Duke. I also am a big Doug McDermott fan, so if the Pelicans' pick ends up closer to the end of the lottery, I think he would be a good pick who could contribute immediately and space the floor.
I feel like Rodney Hood would fit well with anyone.
76ers have a great PG and C prospect. A great shooter like McDermott would balance that very well.
Bro, do you even English?
And Isaiah Austin is too inconsistent for me to want to trade up to get him.
What about Embiid? 3 seven footers along with Nerlens Noel and Spencer Hawes. Size wins. Couple that with the length on the perimeter with MCW, Evan Turner, Tony Wroten, and then Thad Young, this team would give everyone else big time trouble.
I think Gary Harris at 4 or 5 is too high. I like him more in the mid lotto or later (8-14).
The Sixers already have two bigs for next year once Nerlens comes back, BUT if Joel Embiid is the next great center, they can't pass that up. That would then leave Nerlens Noel as an IDEAL backup big man -- a guy who can block shots, rebound, run the floor, dunk, pass, and get some steals. Noel's lack of shooting touch wouldn't matter as much if he came off the bench.
The Sixers are in a good spot though since Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker, OR Julius Randle would be great fits. Later on down, Aaron Gordon (at the 4) or Gary Harris would be very nice fits too.
Marcus Smart wouldn't be a good fit, but he might be too hard to pass up if he is still on the board at 4 or 5.
Between Smart and Embiid, I would rather take Embiid since he has more all-star upside than Noel or Hawes. MCW looks like a great point guard for the future. Tony Wroten is another guy on that team that can handle, score, and create.
Why would anyone draft Julius Randle or Gary Harris when you can have good ol' Mr. Rankles!!
I'm just yanking your chain bro, but Philly will have a ton of options - don't think Isaiah Austin is a lottery talent by any means, I think they need a 2 guard of the future (James Young would be a perfect fit) and a big guy who can step out to replace Thad who will inevitably leave... maybe a guy like Adreian Payne
This draft is really up in the air after the first 5 or 6 picks. I think a lot will come down to the NCAA tournament. Who steps up? Who doesn't?
The Sixers are lucky since they can plug in basically anyone from the top 5 or 10 picks. Marcus Smart wouldn't be a great fit, but if Smart and MCW (with Wroten off the bench) could figure it out (coexist) they would be devastating!
That's the advantage of being this short on talent. We could pretty much take any of the top 6 guys and improve our team a lot.
I go back and forth about how to rank the top 4 guys, but I think that they are Parker, Wiggins, Randle and Embiid. Exum and Smart might go in the top 4 picks, but not by the Sixers.
I said the same thing Memphis but mcw is making it work with wroten and turner both ball pounders it comes down to offense and shooting abilities of the players.Idk who the sixers will select with the next pick we have to see where it lands and I have to see more from the players available but im sure brett brown and same hinkie will do a great job their gem makers. I'm going to as many sixers games as I can next season for sure hopefully I get 10 good games by the floor because the young guns are going to ball .
Sixers has a lot of options this off season. With their pick, they can go for the bpa. Sixers are one of the few, if not only, team that should really consider Parker over Wiggins. He's a legit scorer and will fit perfectly on this team. They can also go big with Randle. Let's not forget how important bigs are in this game. The change in the game now a days isn't because up tempo is the thing to do, but it's because their are a real lack of talented big men. I mean elite players. If Noel and Randle were to reach their potentials, Philly is a contender year in and year out. Same could be said for Embiid, move Noel to pf, but Randle is more of a safe bet. Wiggins is the man, but with Philly current makeup, I will shop the top pick if I could get Randle plus other assets.
A big question mark is the second pick. With Davis out, NO has a shot to keep their pick with a top 5 pick. Assuming Philly gets the pick though, they need to compliment MCW and Randle/Noel with the best shooter available, not counting McDermott who should not be a lotto pick. Harris, Young, Hood.
Now that I think of it, I do like both Vonleh and Payne. Maybe they go with a wing player first, Parker/Wiggins, then take a big with its second pick. Then they can shop Turner/Young for shooters. Turner for Eric Gordon?
I got the rankles/randle mix up. It was the ensuing paragraph that had me scratching my head.
I have been watching joel embiid I thought he was another hasheem thabeet I admit I was wrong should never judge a book by its cover.
I like him,the way he runs and the upside he has for a person that just start playing basketball 2 years ago fundamentally sound bigs take a while to develop (Bynum, Hibbert).If he starts to put up even better numbers as the season goes on and they had a chance to select him do you select him with noel already there and go out and risk chemistry to see if you can solidify a defensive frontline for the future ?
this a be a huge team a 6'6 pg in mcw and two shot blockers in the front count with developing offensive games. Not to mention we can still get a smart or go offensive with a wiggins or parker if we are lucky in the lottery
