This is before you factor in three things.
- The 76ers already have Andre Iguodala and Thaddeus Young.
- Samuel Dalembert, the only guy who can really play center, is out of contract next summer. Some would even argue this point. Translation: They need a center.
- Philadelphia has $65 million committed in salary next season, which is within striking range of the luxury tax.
That's why the 76ers organization needs to be creative, and not just look at drafting the best player and hope for everything to fall into place. As much as Evan Turner should be the clear-cut #2 pick who goes to the 76ers (he could still be the #2 pick overall to another team, of course) based on talent, the organization must put more stock in making a need-based pick.
