Sixers Trade Talk: Do Any Hawks Make Sense as Targets?

Jabari Parker

The commerce deadline is approaching and certainly the Philadelphia 76ers are going to look to make upgrades in an effort to battle with their aggressive Eastern Conference foes. The workforce takes on the Hawks this week and let’s study their roster to see if GM Elton Brand ought to attempt to pry any gamers from Atlanta:

Atlanta’s Untouchables

  • De’Andre Hunter
  • Trae Young
  • Cam Reddish
  • John Collins
  • Kevin Huerter

The Hawks are unlikely to commerce any members of their younger core. Injuries and a John Collins suspension robbed the workforce of getting precious expertise collectively earlier within the season, although now, the squad is at full power and is showcasing some potential. Don’t count on Atlanta to commerce any member of this group.

Why Would You Want To?

  • Chandler Parsons
  • Evan Turner

Parsons ($25.1M) and Turner ($18.6M) appear unlikely to be traded for various causes. Parsons was concerned in a automobile crash earlier this month and his profession is in jeopardy. Turner is a candidate to be purchased out and if that occurs, he might be a candidate for the Sixers. However, at his present wage, there isn’t a means Philadelphia may afford to take him on.

The Interesting Fit

Jabari Parker

  • Jabari Parker

Parker is making $6.5M this season and has a participant choice on his deal for subsequent season. While Collins was out earlier this yr, Parker showcased his offensive potential and for brief stretches, reminded folks of why he was the No. 2 total choose within the 2014 draft.

Philadelphia may use one other scorer, notably one that may get buckets on his personal. Parker can be an fascinating match, although a bundle of Zhaire Smith and Mike Scott would work salary-wise.

Don’t Bother The 43-year-old

  • Vince Carter

Carter isn’t going wherever until he asks to go someplace.

Available But Do The Sixers Really Need Him?

  • Alex Len
  • Damian Jones
  • DeAndre’ Bembry

Len is on an expiring cope with the Hawks, as he’ll make $4.16M this season and until the Sixers transfer Al Horford, they shouldn’t be out there for a conventional middle, so identical with Damian Jones.

Bembry might be a restricted free agent after the season, although it could be straightforward to examine the Hawks permitting him to stroll and discover work elsewhere. Sure, he may make sense for the Sixers in the event that they really feel they’ll get extra out of the St. Joes product, although if he’s not profitable in Atlanta, for a workforce with much less expertise than Philadelphia, why would a contender depend on him in any capability.

Probably Not Going Anywhere

  • Jeff Teague
  • Treveon Graham
  • Bruno Fernando

Teague and Graham came to visit in a commerce for Allen Crabbe earlier this month and neither participant’s wage will be aggregated in one other commerce. It’s unlikely that the workforce strikes both participant anyhow.

Teague has settled into a pleasant function with Atlanta, serving because the workforce’s back-up level guard to Young but additionally spending time alongside the first-time All-Star. Graham, who has now been traded 3 times over the previous seven months, hasn’t performed as a lot since coming to Atlanta.
