Things are quiet on the Libery Baller Front. The next big deadline for us Sixers fans will be in the June Draft. Amidst this historic losing streak I offer you a glimmer the hope—in the form of a hypothetical trade scenario.
Projected Trade this Offseason
Pick #10 (From NO)
2 2014 2nd round picks
1 2015 2nd round pick
Do you guys think Minnesota would do this trade? They know that they will lose him in the 2015 offseason. Although he has stated his desire to return to play in LA; dare I say—The Sixers could offer him the best chance to win a title. Our starting lineup next year would be:
3) Jabari Parker/ Andrew Wiggins
4) Kevin Love
5) Nerlens Noel
That looks like the core beginnings of a possible "big 4." If we could get Minnesota to agree the deal (even if you think it would an extra future 1st rounder) worrying about having the ability to retain Love should be an afterthought. Every game next year would be sold out. He would be the star in a major market. Re-singing here guarantees him almost 30 Million extra dollars. And he would be a fool not to realize the long term potential a roster like that has to offer.
