Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports announced that the 76ers will have Marcus Smart and Dante Exum in for workouts on Sunday. As if this was a surprise to ANYONE. The Joel Embiid injury is causing everyone to stab their eyeballs out with forks and try to imagine a world where a big man can play a game of basketball without shattering his body like a glass plate.
The 76ers appear to be scrambling after the Embiid news with the NBA Draft in six days. We have insane trade rumors, workouts, and everything else that makes NBA Draft season such a joyous time to be around. Exum and Smart will be working out individually for the Sixers. Wouldn’t it be interesting if Sam Hinkie placed the two on a court and made them compete to become the No. 3 pick in a Hunger Games sort of fashion? Beat the hell out of each other and whoever comes out alive will be wearing a Sixers uniform next season. Exciting, thrilling, interesting.
If you had to pick, would you choose Dante Exum or Marcus Smart?
