It's necessary in the NBA. You don't win with a Jrue Holiday as your best player, you win with him as your #2/3 option.

Rest up Noel, plug in MCW, tank next year and hopefully get the #1 pick (Wiggins) with another top 10 pick in one of the better drafts since '03.

They will have a ******** of cap space in the future as well to make a FA splash if necessary.

THIS is how you rebuild and build a championship roster in the NBA. Looks like Hinkie realizes this and this is something that should have been done after AI left. Sick of mediocrity. Ownership was content on just getting butts in the seat (even that didn't work out too well) rather than putting a contender on the court.

This is the first step.
Sixers could very well win a Championship in the next decade quicker than the Flyers if they land Wiggins and some of these other moves pan out......

Sixers really blew their load with Bynum ..they were left with no choice but to push the reset button and the timing is decent given the deep draft next year.
