I hear that Ed Stefanski is going big in this draft. The mock draft on this website predicts that Darrell Arthur will be picked by Philadelphia. I beleive that he is better than the 16th pick in the draft. I beleive that Philadelphia should keep this pick and not trade it because i beleive their team needs to stay young. There is rumors that guys like Koufos and Speights would work well on the Sixers. I do not beleive Speights can do much for this team and i think that Koufos is not what the sixers need. They already have a player like him and his name is Jason Smith. I'm very curious to see what this franchise can do. Ps. They also need 3-pt. shooting. They are the worst in the league at it.
The 76ers need to desperately get the best player available and even try to trade and get some star. Iguodala might be gone soon.
What I think should happen is this... All reports are having Brook Lopez dropping out of top 10 to NJ. How much would it honestly take to trade up 6 slots to take him at #10? You throw Lopez into the starting C spot, along side Sammy D (who I think will be BETTER at the 4 spot) and right there is a tough 2 man matchup.
If this does not happen, I want them to trade back, get a little more to work with and take Roy Hibbert. Ok, he does get in foul trouble... ALOT... But, the thing with Hibbert is, he is HUGE. A Great low post presence great rebounder and great shot blocker. Trade back to the 21st pick and take Roy. And get a little more fire power to work with.
Honestly I wouldnt want to take any big other than Darrel Aurther with the 16th pick. There are too many question marks about the rest of the herd, and I think Aurther would fit better in the Sixers run n' gun then any other PF in this draft. I will agree though that they dont need to trade this pick. Outside of Rose, Beasely, and Mayo I dont think theres anybody worth moving up for. I personally hope they go after Josh Smith and start him at the 4 spot and let Aurther play behind him. If Darrel Aurther isnt available at 16 like you suggest, then I would like to see them pursue a high potential guy like DeAndre Jordan to add depth at center, which I believe to be our position with least depth.
