Tonight is the night when we find out if we will land John Wall and the like or Cole Aldrich.
According to Pete “we’re screwed.”
Sadly, that’s seems to be the sentiment surrounding this franchise. Everyone is down on them and good luck doesn’t seem likely. But I reserve hope.
What We’re Playing For
The Sixers are sitting in the 6th spot in a 5-man draft. The prizes:
- John Wall
- Evan Turner
- Derrick Favors
- Wesley Johnson
- DeMarcus Cousins
If the ball bounces the Sixers way and they move up those 5 guys are the unquestioned player pool to choose from.
1 and 2 are a lock in my opinion. Wall will go #1 99.5% of the time, with Turner 2nd. But, there are some rumors floating around that maybe Minnesota would take Turner at #1 since they have Flynn (irrelevant really) and love Rubio who is waiting in the wing. Also, what if Utah lands the top spot? Would they really draft Wall with Deron Williams, a top 3 NBA point guard right now?
Where it’ gets more interesting is 3-5. Many believe Favors physique, athletic ability and upside is a near lock at #3.
Simple question to kick off this thread…
If we land the 3rd pick, who do you want and why?
Have at it.
