We’re getting closer to the trade deadline so you know all kinds of rumors are spreading around. This time, the Sixers are giving up Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes for Josh Smith.
Sorry if I don’t seem excited about this. Only way this deal makes sense is if Smith doesn’t get maxed. Sixers can’t afford to pay him that much. Plus, you already have Thaddeus Young. Not to say Thad is better; but they are both PF’s. Does Thad take the bench role again?
What about the stories about his attitude? Is all he need is a change of scenery? This guy loves taking jumpers. But, we need a banger down low. Yeah, the PF position has changed into a face-up style.
Eh, I just don’t think this makes (sixer) sense. I’m sure there are folks who still wished the Sixers went after him instead of Elton Brand. It couldn’t happen. This time around, it shouldn’t happen.
