    The Cavs have 2 first rounders. There’s and the Lakers. You only have them with one pick, which is the Lakers not their lottery pick.

  2. Dave43' says:

    SG is a major concern for the Sixers? Evan Turner, Lou Williams, Adre Iguodala (a SG playing SF) and Jodie Meeks aren’t enough? I think the Sixers need a PF more with Brand getting old and Hawes being a free agent.

  3. Matt says:

    The Reaptors drafting Beal will not fill a huge hole at SG; Demar Derozan
