Take this with a grain of salt, but apparently there is a "Sixers Insider" on RealGM by the name of sixerfan1976 who was been dropping info regarding trades and such. Also, FWIW, keep in mind he's got a whole thread dedicated to him, so most of the Sixer fans do trust his word. Here's what he said: Hearing we are getting calls about Iguodala from Dallas and the Clips in addition to the Bulls. WE do not really like Deng this much so it may have to be a threw way if we trade with the Bulls. Was also told no salary....

iggy, yes. deng no. and I tihnk we should wait and watch all of Dj's summer league, to see if he has in deed improved or not. if not, then just trade him right now, cause if he hasn't made even a little improvement by now, i don't think he ever will.

I'd give up DJ for either of those guys. I don't think DJ will ever be anything more than a second-rate Tyson Chandler type. Capable of being a presence on defense at times and getting the occasional put back or lob dunk, but that's about it. I don't think it would be hard to find someone who could do similar things.

However, if we do this, we need to sign some other back up center. If we traded DJ and then lost either Kaman or (heaven forbid) Griffin to injury, we'd be really screwed up front.

Big Sofo would have to be that guy.

btw my vote goes to Iggy. Deng is way too injury-prone.

well put! DJ has shown he has a lot of maturing and isnt starter qualiy on both sides offense and defense. Yes he gets highlight reel blocks and thunderous dunks but his overall game is 2nd tier.

I'm tired of potential, I want the team to win now so I'd give up DJ for Iggy and maybe even Deng.

If we do give up DJ, we would need to find a back up center right away because Sofo is not going to cut it in my opinion.

^^^ I'm with you. I don't think we can count on Sofo as the back up center. Given his size, I have a feeling he's going to be a foul-a-minute kind of guy when he plays.

Iggy is NOT a small foward he is a very athletic 2 guard who cant guard big SFs. i like him as a player but with EG and Foye that is an overload at the guard spot

We could sign DJ Mbenga for a song, and he is quite accomplished for a backup center. If we don't, he probably just goes back to the Lakers for almost zero money. DJ has made no improvement the last two years. You have to be OK with giving him up for a top tier SF.

A big YES for either- by adding either one it would instantly make this team pretty much playoff caliber.

iggy maybe deng if we dont give up to much..

the sixers wanna clear cap space and want to build for the future... why not we take on his cost and give them dj who i think is about 800k a year..and a future pick

that would be a great trade for both of us

I don't think we have the cap space to take on either guy now. Not really sure who we could trade either. Kaman, Gordon, Jordan, Baron, and Griffin are the only pieces we can trade that would give us the cap space to take on either guy.

We're screwed.

not really. we can just give them DJ and gomes. so that's gomes' 4 mil, plus the fact that we can absorb 10 mil, makes it about 14mil, around what iggy is getting payed. it can be done.

Either way I'll do it. It's just a damn shame to wait this long and have to trade DJ or even a more valuable piece to get a SF. There was no need to get to this point where we're giving away draft picks or rotation guys to get a starter.

that'd be fine. But we'll have to wait until Dec. 15th to trade any of these recent signings. Gomes, Foye, Cook untradable under current CBA until that date.

DJ + Baron + a 2nd rounder in a 3 team deal that sends Lou Williams and Igoudala to the Clippers.

We'd be better off.

I'm not sure if we have the caproom to absorb Iggy's contract....but here's an easier alternative - DJ for Thad Young straight up. Since they already have Iggy and Turner, they'd probably do this.

YES ON Baron (can't hit a jump shot worth sh*t) and DJ (I love him but he's "AIR" Jordan for the wrong reasons) FOR

AI - The bigger, more powerful, team-oriented AI.

That gives us

RANDY FOYE (solid)

GORDON (future all star)

ANDRE IGUODALA (Scorer)

BLAKE GRIFFIN (Rookie of the year)

CHRIS KAMAN (All star)

That's a playoff team right there. EVERYONE on that team can drive and shoot. I get goosebumps thinkin about that team.

BENCH: AMINU, BLEDSOE (Future Star), GOMES, COOK, MORRISON (if this goes through)

YES, deng or iggy for DJ....DJ is nice prospect, but if he becomes a beast, he'd leave our team for lucrative contract later anyway....wit deng or iggy, we go into win now mode, while still developing e-gor/blake into superstars that I feel they will be....stop holding onto all of these "potential" stars, lez get'em now, and jack other team's young stars after THEY develop them, like everyone jacks ours....reverse the trend, and reverse our record

I bet that if we had never had Deandre, we would be looking for a certer that can run the floor like him and can contest some shots like him too. He's not perfect but neighther is iggy or deng, idk about this, but I think deandre can develope into a pretty good defender and I'm not sure if we should give him up just yet.

Look an important factor were missing here is that Blake is best mates with deandre and i think with Blake around deandre will be more focused and improve alot more than hes showed in recent times. So if that in mind i think we need to take a risk and trade Kaman for AI and lets see what happens. Then we can go for Gasol next year so weve won on both accounts.

Weve picked up a good centre we got DJ as a back u and AI is in our team that should make us alot more competitive.

Bledsoe

gordon

AI

Griffin

Gasol

ohh and i forgot AI and Deng have the same injury achillies tendonites,,,,thats a pretty nasty injury soo thats what front office have to think about are those players worth 13 mil

a year or is someone like tayshun or mike milelr who are 7 mil a year worth more to the team...

its all relative to the wallet..u need to buy players that provide more bang for the buck...

not like kaman and baron who provide minimal bang for maximum bucks ahahahah

I hope everyone here realizes that we can't do this trade at all because we'd be over the cap right?

We'd have to send Kaman instead of DJ.

I guess tied for 6th in the league in scoring, averaging nearly 4.5 points MORE a game than Blake Griffin, Eric Gordon is crap and can't score at all.

http://espn.go.com/nba/statistics/playe ... asontype/2

Not to mention going to the FT line 9+ times a game is crap too.

You need to think a little more before you post.

I would love to get iggy. Not a fan of ho's contact but I think deandre is starter material now. Once Kaman gets back I would love to deal him. This team would be so athletic if we land him. Bledsoe, Gordon, iggy, griffin, and my boy DJ

Heard they want to package Iggy and EB together, which is a deal breaker for any team.

Iggy is having somewhat of a down year on the offensive end. Deng looks good, he would make an immediate impact

This is very true, Chicago had a fire sale and we didn't capitalize. The front office had no desire to spend. Their only accomplishment over the summer is that they did not get us involved in another big long term contract

Brand is playing well so far.

I say we give em' Kaman and Baron for Iggy and Brand. If they wanna get ridda Brand, they gotta take Baron. Kaman is not only a highly valuable asset, but his contract is up in 1.5 years. So its basically an expiring deal. They'd just have to take 1 evil for another.

How would you trade DJ straight up for either of those guys? They're both on pretty decent contracts, Iggy's is big which is one of the main reasons they want to get rid of him. DJ is still on his rookie contract so we'd have to throw in a lot more to make anything like this work.
