Bryan Colangelo admits that the Sixers will probably trade either Noel, Embiid, or Okafor
Yesterday, Bryan Colangelo went on Sirius XM Radio to talk about his team and if one of their big men might have to be traded.
Colangelo had this to say:
“There’s no question you can look at our roster and say we have some unbalance. We’re top heavy. We have some good talent there. We have to figure out what we’re going to do with everybody. When you look at the calls coming in, quite frankly, everyone’s trying to poach a big man from us.”
When asked about making a trade Bryan Colangelo said this:
“We’re not going to make a bad deal just to make a deal. I think we can be a better basketball team if we can distribute that talent better. Maybe take one of those assets and address other needs on the roster. I think right now it’s best to say we like all of them, we want to see if we can make the most out of each of them. At the end of the day, the reality says one has to go at some point but only when the deal is right.”
At this point, it seems like Colangelo is leaning towards looking for a trade for either Joel Embiid, Nerlens Noel, or Jahlil Okfaor, but he’s not going to just trade one to get rid of them. He seems content with going into next season with all three to see them try it all together for one more year, but admits that down the road at least one of them will most likely have to go.
With teams on the prowl now to improve their roster, we might be able to learn in the coming weeks which of the three players is drawing the most interest and might be moved.
