This is your Tuesday discussion thread people. Depending on how you read that sentence, I could have just called you Thread People. I don't think that's an insult, but let me know if it is and I'll use it more often to describe you. Use this post as a talk about whatever lazy Tuesday. Orlando Summer League starts next week and if you hadn't heard, the Sixers aren't skimping out this year and actually fielding their own team. I blame all of their problems last year on splitting the Summer League with the Nets. Lesson: Don't mess with the Summer League gods.
Here's an Inquirer article about Turner/Holiday/Williams.
The coach told Williams not to assume that anyone already has been anointed a starter. Williams said he would welcome that role as long as he is given an opportunity to start, according to Collins.
I don't want to see this happen. I'd rather not give him any opportunity to start, package him and Thaddeus for an actual back-up point guard, preferably one that is young, and expiring contract, and a future first. What kind of value do you think is out there for Thad/Lou? Is Collins really going to go Brand at the 5 and let Thad start at power forward again?
