Dion May Be Exactly What The Sixers Are Waiting For
Throughout the NBA off-season, the Sixers have been the trendy name to bring up in connection to trades. The latest rumor that the Sixers have been linked to is an apparent interest on the part of the Timberwolves to acquire Thaddeus Young to replace Kevin Love if and when they deal the star forward.
The Sixers have also been linked to Dion Waiters of the Cleveland Cavaliers. Because Cleveland is the reported front-runner to land Love, it is only reasonable to think that a potential three team deal could be in the works that could send Waiters home to Philadelphia and Love to Cleveland to partner up with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving.
Fans have seemed to voice a bit of hesitancy when it comes to acquiring the third year guard out of Syracuse by way of Life Center Academy in Burlington, NJ.
The apprehension is somewhat surprising and if the Sixers can acquire Waiters and accompanying assets in a deal that would allow them to ship out Young, they will have made a great move.
