General Manager, Rod Thorn, appeared on a Philadelphia radio show on Thursday to discuss the Sixers. When asked about Jrue Holiday's position, he didn't exactly endorse as the official point guard of the future.

"I think he can play two guard," Thorn said about Holiday. "Other than Jodie when Jodie's going good, he's our best shooter. Jrue is certainly one of our two or three best shooters. He can also, you know, also handle the ball but you know, he's another young player trying to find exactly where he is in the league. I think since the all-star break he's really stepped it up, he's been a lot better."

Jrue's play has been a mystery all season. The constant settling for long twos and lack of free throws has frustrated Sixers fans to no end, and has many questioning his ultimate potential in the NBA.

I agree with Thorn's assessment that he can play the two, but I don't think it's ideal. Players need to be put in a position to maximize their potential, and playing Jrue off the ball isn't that position.

Any chance the Sixers move Iguodala in the off-season, slide Turner to the three, Holiday to the two and acquire another point guard? I don't think so, but who knows what the front office is thinking.
