‘No Particular Hurry’ Episode 3 with Derek Bodner | Out Now

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

In today’s episode of “No Particular Hurry” Dave Early chats with Derek Bodner, Senior Writer for The Athletic.

In the pod they get into:

  • Unpacking why Jimmy Butler isn’t here. How would Derek weight the different factors?
  • If the Sixers had offered Butler a full 5 year max would he have taken it or would he have preferred a four year max in Miami instead?
  • Could the Sixers be on the precipice of wasting the primes of their two stars?
  • Do you have any long-term concerns about Ben Simmons’ health? Would you reduce his minutes next year?
  • Has GM Elton Brand been the top voice in this front office over the last 2 years?
  • Do you think Brand will have autonomy moving forward?
  • Are the Sixers making FO changes they don’t want to make because of public pressure? Have they done that before?
  • Is Managing Partner Josh Harris perhaps a little too trusting of the myriad voices around him?
  • Does this complicated Management-Front office collaborative make it difficult to bring in someone like a Daryl Morey?
  • A few of Derek’s favorite coaching candidates ... and plenty more!
