Trade Front: Point Guards, Andre Miller and Elton Brand

New, comments

Chad Ford has two articles up on ESPN.com. One is about the point guards being shopped around the league and another is about the teams shopping for point guards. Unfortunately, the Sixers aren't on the list of buyers, but a certain player did make the list of point guards being shopped.

Andre Miller, Sixers
Miller may be the most attractive player on the list for two reasons. One, he's a very talented veteran who can immediately step in and contribute on a number of contenders. Two, he's in the last year of his contract, which means teams don't have to commit long-term.

 

With the Sixers hovering around .500 and not looking like the title contenders we thought they would be, it might be time for the Sixers to make a move for the future. While Miller won't bring them back an All-Star in return, he could get them a future pick or another player who could help them down the road.

It's not hard to see that the Sixers' future looks brighter with their youth, not their veterans. While Miller might be the first casualty, it's not inconceivable that Elton Brand is next.

Chance of trade: 25 percent

This is interesting on so many levels. Read that last sentence one more time. "While Miller might be the first casualty, it's not inconceivable that Elton Brand is next." Really? Really? This is very interesting coming from Mr. Ford. I'm on the end of my lunch break, so I really can't go in-depth on this until later. But for those of you who can, by all means, discuss. Miller and Brand on the block?
