Yahoo! Sports BDL Blog is shopping a deal for OUR Iggy between Philly and Indiana

Basically it gives Brand, Iggy and Speights to Indiana for chump change...but blows Indiana's cap space.

If we are really serious about contending now, this year etc...I think we should think of doing a similar deal.

That being said, are we sure that Iggy can put us over the top considering we would have to take on Brand's contract and probably loose some good depth and draft picks in the process.

I think we are definitely in the running for top 4 in the West but do we honestly matchup better than LA?  On on individual basis I think not: Gasol/Bynum/Odom is better than Yao/Scola/Hill/Patterson.  Kobe is better than Martin.

It is only when we get to SF and PG that we win out: Brooks/Lowry torches Fisher/skinny white three point shooter

At SF, Battier/Bud torches Crazy Pills (yeah I said it.  Battier's D and both of their offensive decision making make up for Crazy Pills' strong fast hands)

But if you add Iggy and Brand and eat a ton of cap space/lux tax that may put us over.

I am sure Morey knows what deals are possible and what top quality players are possibilities but all I have heard about that seems almost possible is an Iggy trade. 

 

Sorry for the scatterbrained writeup...but I am rushed for time.
