    Default Iggy Trade Options - Pick Your Favourite

    So these were the "best for both teams" trade options I could come up with for Iggy (not including dalembert). Now we'd have to include 3 million in cash and/or 2nd rounders to appease Phili, but which of the two would you prefer?

    -------------------
    Trade Scenario #1
    --------------------
    To Raps: Iguodala and Holiday

    To Phili: Jose, Demar and Rasho (arrange for buyout and re-sign for the playoffs)
    --------------------

    OR

    --------------------
    Trade Scenario #2
    --------------------
    To the Raps: Iguodala, Speights and Ivey

    To Phili: Jose, Derozan, and Amir
    --------------------


    trade scenario 1 would leave us more balanced with a possible point guard for the future, whereas scenario 2 would give us a boost in a slight upgrade from Amir to Speights. Which is your favorite?

    Both depend on whether BC thinks Derozan will not be better than Iggy. With no draft picks for the future, and not too much young talent locked in..(Amir, Bosh UFA) I would want to keep Derozan..always good to have young talent with upside

    Me likes trade scenario #1 but there's no way Philly would ever do it. I would do it in a heartbeat, but Philly GM Stefanski wouldn't let the team get raped like that. I'm not a fan of trade scenario #2.

    I'd be loathe to break up the CalderJack combo, as it's working so nicely, but if BC could work something out to get Iggy (who imho would make the Raps an elite team in the league) then I say go for it. How 'about

    Calderon/DeMar+ Weems

    for

    Iggy

    Admittedly IDK if the contracts work out money wise but if it does or is close enough the trade scenario can be tweaked.

    Philly is in need of a true PG with experience to run the offense. Iggy is one of the better SG perimeter defenders who can also has offensive firepower. We'd be thin at the PG position, but I'm sure BC could find a player to fill that. With Ocho gone Hedo would be able to play to his potential as he'd be handling the ball a hell of a lot more.

    My trade scenario is probably just as unlikely, but TBH if BC can figure out any way to bring Iggy here I'd be for it (short of giving up CB or Il Mago of course)

    I'd hate giving up DeRozan this early but Iggy is the player we want DeRozan to become so I suppose I could be convinced.

    I'd go with Option #1 but I don't think Philly will give up Holiday. Looking at this deal four years from now they could be giving up two of the best players in it.

    They do, but Phili would have to waive either Gangsta or Carney to create the roster spot...

    Agreed but the consensus is that Demar's ceiling is @ a Iggy/J-rich level and to be honest the chances of him or most prospects reaching that ceiling is like 10%... Why not get a 26 y/o Iguodala now and all-but force CB to resign with us this summer??? It puts us in the tax for next year and we can do our best blue Jays impression and buy ourselves a championship contender!

    If the 76ers are looking to move cap and we can use the trade and drop;

    Iguodala and Holiday to the raps for Jose/Wright/POB/Rasho.

    76ers lose nearly 4.7 million at the end of the season in 3 expiring contracts, lock up a point guard that sees 4 million in cap difference come there way.
    And the
