    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/76ers-nearly-made-monster-trade-221623941.html

    TL;DR version:

    6ers get: Schroder

    Hawks get: Ish Smith, 2016 1st rd pick, Stauskas, and "an expiring contract believed to be Jakarr Sampson"


    http://boston.cbslocal.com/2016/02/20/robb-jahlil-okafor-celtics-trade-target/

    TL;DR version

    Celtics get: Jahlil Okafor

    76ers get: 2016 BKN 1st rd pick, ??????


    from what the internets say, Hawks backed out of the trade with Philly and then Philly backed out on the trade with Celtics....seems like they backed out on the Celtics after they found out the Schroder deal wasnt happening but thats purely speculation on my part.

    They say Philadelphia is done tanking and these trades could be revisited on draft night so that should be some entertaining television

    Trading okafor for draft picks would mean more tanking.

    If they get no1 and get their franchise player this will have all worked out. If not they still have plenty of pieces to play with.

    Hinkie is still a genius

    even if they did both deals, I think giving their own 1st rounder this year for Schroeder would have been incredibly insane. Can't see them doing that for real. Real nice player but I don't see him being worth a top 3 draft pick. Doesn't make sense.

    is Schroeder really looking to get that kind of money? I can't believe that. I have not watched that many NBA games this year but I still think of him as a nice backup.

    they have too many big men 1st of all, secondly the BKN pick probably wasnt even the only thing involved. they would have brought back a player from boston as well but i doubt we'll find that out anytime soon

    also, when you look at the atlanta deal and boston deals put together they make a ton of sense and would make philadelphia better right now and in the future....essentially you upgrade ish to schroder, you free up noel and also give guys like holmes an opportunity down the stretch this year to show what they got before embiid(whos better than okafor) takes over and then next year they could at least go into it figuring out who fits with who and have a shit ton of young talent. they also upgrade the 1st round pick because th BKN pick ismore valuable than whatever one they were offering...it wasnt their own that is a fact, per reports at least

    thats not tanking.

    Living outside Philly, I have to hear about the 76ers tank all the Frickin time.

    I keep Okafor, I keep Noel....I keep Embiid.
    I want all 3 to play together for at least a season or 2.

    Last thing you need is to trade Okafor and then Noel's knee gives out and / or Embiid's foot falls off....Let's not trade the guy with ZERO injury history.

    I've actually heard people say :"Okafor is only a 20/10 guy..." ..like that's a bad thing.

    He's like 19 years old and has only played 50-something games for God's sake...He'll get better.
    Kids a beast. Defense not great, but will get better as he gets older.

    This is where fantasy sports have ruined sports. "Fans" are pseudo gms and just want to make trades all the time because that's more fun than watching the games.

    the fact that okafor and noel are both less productive when on the floor together is concerning but the smart route is keeping them for a year and then picking and choosing who to keep. Dario Saric is coming next year too and who knows what he brings to the table in the nba

    Saric might come....he might not.
    If he waits another year he's not subject to the rookie wage scale.
    Brett Brown should just throw both bigs on the court all the time....it's only their first season together....let them figure it out.
    They are your 2 best players....the rest are d league players.

    that is true about saric

    Covington & Ish are solid nba players. especially Covington, he could be a legit role player on any team.

    I say don't trade anybody, Noel, Okafor, Embiid, Saric and 2 high first round picks( maybe a Ben Simmons & Buddy Held),let them play together, then trade for other pieces and then throw all that money you have under the cap on some big time free agents.

    Don't trade anybody.

    hard to argue with this...as many picks as they have coming why not focus on trading up with them.

    you cant deal good young prospects before you know what you even have in the first place....seems like dealing okafor already would just be another step back but at the same time getting schroder would be huge for them. unfortunately atlanta isnt in the business of helping jerry colangelo in his attempt to pick up the pieces
