The Sixers' desire for a big man is the next to last hope for the Nets to wind up wiht Evan Turner. (A trade is the last hope.)
And Ed Stefanski seems to be saying, forget it. When asked Friday if the Sixers trading away Samuel Dalembert meant his team might go big on Thursday, Stefanski replied, "I don’t see it that way."
"No. Not really," Stefanski's new coach, Doug Collins said when asked the same question, "because at the end of the day, we will get together and we will pow-wow and figure out who's the best guy."
And here's yet another indicator. This graphic was inadvertently posted on the Sixers website Friday. In their individual workouts in Philly, DeMarcus Cousins apparently looked better than Derrick Favors...again. Chad Ford tweeted, "Cousins and Favors went head-to-head in Philly today. Once again, Cousins looked great...There's going to be a lot of pressure on Favors on the 21st in NJ."
