Trade Billy King

The Sixers are starting to workout potential draft picks and they brought in their first four candidates for a workout yesterday.

Billy is really optimistic about the draft:
"Really, deep down, I'd like to get two more 6-6 or 6-8 athletes," he said. "Just in watching the playoffs, you watch Dwyane Wade, you watch LeBron [James], you watch Shawn Marion, you need more athletic 6-6, 6-8 guys. Now in the league, a lot more teams are going small, playing a 6-8 small forward at the power forward position."
He said that with a straight face. We shit you not.

Billy King thinks he can get two Lebron/Dwyane-caliber players with the 13th pick in the NBA draft later this month.

Humor us. Seriously, just for a minute. Put aside everything else ludicrous in that statement, and you’re still left with the fact that Billy King is only now realizing that quick and athletic swingmen are great assets for a NBA team to have.

How lucky we are to have such a visionary for a GM.
