    Good idea to sell high. He had inflated stats like Jrue Holiday.

    They had a crap team and let him run amok on the court. His fg% and advanced stats are beyond terrible.

    Is that why we're weak at the spot?

    Yeah, I would be looking to trade him too were I the GM. Seems like a guy the Kings would throw a lot of money after and they could use a PG, so I wouldn't be shocked to see him go there at some point this season.

    They already have Sessions, Collison, McCallum, Burton, McLemore...not sure they need a PG. But hey, you never know with this terrible franchise.

    IDK the last we drafted a distributing PG (not named Aaron Brooks) in the first round and we let go of Lowry and Dragic.

    MCW to Rockets! Do it Morey.

    On a serious note, he could be useful in a 3 team deal to net us Rondo or Rubio.

    IT seems like philly draft players with minor injury and shut them down for the season in order to suck. Hinnkie been doing this ever since he took over. MCW, Noels, Embid.
