    Keep an eye on Gallo if he's willing to take a lot less.

    especially under a new coach who will play the entire bench.

    I like the idea of doing this and giving Gallinari the full-MLE and having that be the offseason, fill out the roster with vet minimums after that.

    I feel like every team is gonna try and create a team to compete with the lakers. Trust me, we won't be the only team asking for turner/ibaka/baynes.

    Acquiring Bamba and Baynes would be more economical AND would still have Russ for another big trade at trade deadline.

    But acquiring Embiid (or even Simmons) sounds too good to be true.

    Philadelphia won’t agree to that, even if it’s true.

    If the team can just add Wood to the core, we are set.

    Tilman could compete for a championship in year one of the post Morey years and we can all pretend he’s the GOAT.

    What about Aldridge or k love ? Don’t love either but we need a star front court player badly. Ins perfect world we sign boogie on a min deal.

    I just saw someone suggest:

    HOU: Horford

    76ers: Eric Gordon, David Nwaba, Ben McLemore, and Clemons

    not sure about including McLemore and Nwaba but it works financially.

    One could rebuild this team very quickly. Success wouldn’t be guaranteed but it would be an interesting team and you could dump on Lebron’s LA teams.

    Harden for Wiggins, Paschall, Looney and #2 (Hayes as Harden’s replacement?)

    Westbrook for Randle, Payton, Ellington and #8 (Devin Vassell why not)

    Gordon/Tucker for Dinwiddie/Thomas

    House for Bamba

    Dinwiddie, Payton, Clemons
    Hayes, Ellington, McLemore
    Wiggins, Vassell, Thomas
    Covington, Paschall, Caboclo
    Randle, Looney, Bamba

    I think we’re back to “fun .500 team” territory but it’s possible to do. Wait out some of the veteran contracts while the youth develops. Resign whoever becomes necessary and have big money to add a free agent to a solid, homegrown-ish core in like 3 years when Lebron, GSW are old and beat up.


    Sigh... Morey leaving is a bummer. This is my bummer knee jerk blow it up tribute post.
