Oh Ed Stefanski, you sly fox. First, you made it appear as though the Sixers weren't going to make any moves. Then you go out and blow everyone's doors off with this franchise-altering blockbuster:

The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to a trade that will send Jodie Meeks and Francisco Elson to the Philadelphia 76ers for Primoz Brezec, Royal Ivey and a second-round draft pick, two league sources told NBA Insider Chad Ford.

Holy shit! Stop the presses! Championship here we come! Ugh.

Now I'm not saying this isn't a fine deal for the Sixers. In fact, I think it's clearly a move that favors the Sixers. But man, this franchise needs an overhaul. That's not an opinion. That's a fact. Stefanski has completely and utterly crippled this team by signing Andre Iguodala to a way too expensive contract while also signing a washed-up, injured "power forward" who never once made any of his NBA teams better … and played at Duke. For $80 million. Over five seasons.

Call me crazy, but I don't think Jodie Meeks and Francisco Elson can even begin to help fix that. Though, you know, unloading Samuel Dalembert's contract and, yes, even moving Iguodala may have been a start.

But hey, Jodie Meeks! He scored a ton of points in college once!

On a seriously bright note, perhaps this means less playing time for Willie Green, which would be awesome. Also, I do kinda like Meeks.

Maybe he can be the new end-of-game shot guy too. Because we all know this team desperately needs one.


BallHype: hype it up!
