76ers Need A True Point Guard. *cough...Jose... cough*
Hmmm .... not proposing any fantasy deals here, but could the Sixers be a possible suitor for Jose and if so who do they have that the Raptors could use? :confused:

Legendary Princeton coach Pete Carril believes that the 76ers can have success using the Princeton-style offense.
Carril spent time with Philadelphia coach Eddie Jordan when they were both assistants in Sacramento.
"It's really a nice team, but what I really think what he might need is a point guard," Carril said.
Jordan said before the season that Philadelphia didn't really need a true point guard.
"He a great player, but I think more of a slasher, a scorer," Carril said of Lou Williams. "He can become a point guard in that system, but it's very hard. Believe it or not, I think that the guy who can do it is Allen Iverson. I don't know if he wants to do it, but he's a great passer. What he does for [Sam] Dalembert ... Take a look at the box score and when Iverson's in the game; Dalembert's in double figures. When Iverson's not in the game, his numbers go down.
"Iverson was always a great passer. He did what he thought he had to do to [in years past] and that was shoot. Right or wrong, that's what he did and sometimes had to do. But he is a great, great passer. A point guard will work it so that a team will get a better shot than what they're getting now."
