Sam Smith scuttlebutt

The Chicago reporter on trading Big Al and what the Sixers' plans might be. 

If MIN drafts Demarcus Cousins, would you trade Deng & Gibson to MIN for Al Jefferson

Jason Quaid

Sam: Probably, but from what I’ve heard—and this could change or there could be a trade—Minnesota is down on Cousins given his curious background and behavior. Last I heard they would not take him, but things change closer to the draft. Although Jefferson had a bad season and doesn’t look like he can jump anymore, if you could retain your cap space and a post player you’d have to look at it. Though the general feeling is if they trade one it will be Love.

Who says no first? Deng, Gibson and the 17th pick for Brand and the 2nd pick? Gives the Sixers a outside shooter Deng, A PF who can run Gibson. The Bulls get low post scoring and Turner to replace Deng. 


Jim Harlan

Sam: I thought we’d moved past Elton. Besides his injuries in recent years and drop in productions, he’s never been a low post scorer. He’s more face up and became a threat when he could step out and make that 16 footer. The Bulls will make a strong pitch for Bosh, I believe, and then perhaps Boozer next in line. As for the 76ers, new coach Doug Collins is thrilled with the possibility of pairing Evan Turner with Jrue Holiday. There’s no truth to this talk of the 76ers giving up the pick to dump Brand. Doug will get a lot more out of Brand playing him at center, playing small and fast with Iguodala back to slashing and every one of those pull up threes he takes putting him back on the bench until he stops. I think he’ll be a comeback player/most improved type for next season.
