Just quickly why tf weren't we going after Ibaka? I'd take him over TT anyday. I like the Jeff teague acquisition off the bench he'll be good I'm going to miss wannamaker though.

Ibaka can't body up big C's like Embiid is most likely why.

Don't think he can switch on D like TT can either. Which is something we expect our centres to do at times.

We don't really need a C for their offense. We've enough shots to be taken already by 3 players.

So who are we targeting then?

Largest exception in the history of the NBA I believe.
I think Aaron Gordon is a perfect target for us. Can play PF & potential to play small ball 5 if need be. Is another 2 way player, that can drop 20+ on any given night & can shoot the ball well inside & out.

He increases our positional flexibility across the board & think we’d be genuine title contenders if we landed him.

Would be a nice addition.

Yeah agreed, I like Gordon a lot and I think he would compliment our side very well.

So it'll be Smart, Brown, Tatum, Williams x2 starting?

Welp, we'll lose.
Lucky it’s only pre season 😅

We were never getting Kamba back this early. Think that’s why they have been talking up Pritchard lately. Although he’s hurt his finger.
