100% it was, as soon as we traded for Harris that sealed Fultz's fate at the 76er. We are planning on keeping both Butler and Harris next year so he was always going to go, sad to see him leave but hopefully he can get himself right at the Magic.
The addition pf Simmons and Ennis certainly makes Philly better defensively. Considering Zhaire Smith is also practicing the trio could actually be very handy at coming in and playing lock down roles while all are capable of finishing on the break.
Love Joel. Speaks his mind. He wasn't wrong either. Those refs sucked down the stretch in that game. Especially a travel call against Ben when he got fouled by Tatum and the Embiid one where he obviously got fouled.
Zhaire Smith sounds like he is close to returning. Considering he's a fantastic athlete I think he could be pretty important come play off time. Quality small guards have killed us in some loses this year. He wouldnt have to be a great shooter (he's a decent shooter). But his speed and size would be handy against Boston, Bucks and Toronto. Its likely that we will have to beat at least two of those squads come playoff time if we are to win the Eastern Conference.
