Samuel Dalembert On the Trading Block?



According to Chicago Bulls beat writer Mike McGraw, Samuel Dalembert and a few other big men may be on the trading block because of the bad economy.

The Sixers need Dalembert's defense especially with Elton Brand out for the rest of the season. I do not like the sounds of a front court that starts Thaddeus Young and Marreese Speights.

An Early Look At the NBA Draft

The Sixers main need this offseason will be at both guard spots. If Andre Miller leaves, that leaves a hole at the point guard position. The Sixers could also use an upgrade at shooting guard with Willie Green as the starter. Lou Williams may be ready to start this year, but the Sixers could use a quality guy at both spots.

Here are three guards who are projected to go late lottery-end of first round who could end up with the Sixers:

1. Stephen Curry



If you're into March Madness Betting, you probably know Curry as the guy who singlehandedly ruined your bracket last year. There have been many complaints about Curry's size and athletic ability that lead people to assume his success in college may not translate well to the NBA. Curry end up being a role player his whole career, but he would provide great scoring off the bench. He has nice range and leadership ability, and is one of the nation's top scorers once again this season.

2. Ty Lawson



Lawson is the leader of one of the top teams in the country this season in North Carolina. He led the Tarheels past rival Duke scoring 21 points in the second half to lead a comeback turned blowout. He has the speed, quickness, strength, and ball handling ability to be a great late first round steal.

3. Eric Maynor



Maynor is a small school guy from Virginia Commonwealth who has gone a little under the radar. He is a great clutch performer who excells in pressure packed situations. He has the size (6'3") and the speed to be a great guard in the NBA. Maynor has an unorthodox shot release which can result in allowing defenders more time to disrupt the shot, but that has not been much of a problem this season. If you're in to Sports Betting, make sure you have Maynor and VCU on the first round upset.

Sixers Lose Heartbreaker to the Champs




Sixers seem to always lose on buzzer beaters. There was the Tony Parker buzzer beater at San Antonio. Then, Dirk hit one a few weeks ago against the Mavericks. And then tonight Ray Allen of the Boston Celtics a game winning three with 0.5 seconds remaining.

Ray Allen scored the game winning three when he was left wide open by Thaddeus Young off a screen to hand the Sixers' their second loss in as many games.

The Sixers hung around and were leading for much of the second half against the Champs. Despite the Celtics playing without Kevin Garnett, it can still be considered a good game by the Sixers.

Andre Iguodala played another great game, scoring 22 points, grabbing six boards, dishing six assists, and getting three steals. He hit the go ahead jumper near the end. Andre Miller scored 21 and dished out seven assists.

Samuel Dalembert played another solid game down low. He scored 14 points and grabbed seven boards. Thaddeus Young added 10 points and Lou Williams added 11 points. Reggie Evans played a great game with his hustle, scoring eight points and grabbing 10 rebounds.

Paul Pierce led all scorers with 29 points. Ray Allen scored 23 on 9 of 18 shooting. Rajon Rondo scored 20 points and dished out eight assists. Glen "Big Baby" Davis scored 12 and grabbed 11 boards in place of Garnett.

The Sixers play the Indiana Pacers on Thursday.
