Sixers : "We're devastated" about this season; free agency next season
With this article the Sixers officially put up the White Flag for this season.
Some interesting points from the article.
1) They are backing CJ.
Sounds like he will be back next season. I was hoping to get Goorj per any serious contending team.
2) Casper Ware.
Seems like all was agreed with everyone and then Ware's club changed their mind and demanded a buyout. Can't blame the Sixers in that case, but would have been nice to have a back up option.
3) Free Agency.
The club is 'preparing' for free agency now.
They are targetting 3 potential candidates for 'a position'.
I don't know who nor the position they want filled. From here I'm just guessing.
Given we will have McCarron, Dech, DJ and Sotto, I would guess the most glaring need is a gun PG or a PF.
Who are the top tier FAs going next season?
Bryce Cotton (Dreaming)?
Jack White (has 3 year deal but is 3rd year a player or mutual option).
I have just realised I made an awful assumption that the Sixers are actually going to target top tier talent.
The more likely list would be :
- Jarred Bairstow.
- Matt Kenyon.
- Mirko Djeric
- Fabian Kryslovic
- Jarrod Kenny
