In response to R9R's comment:
Sorry the point wasn't emphasized, there is no way you get Hawes and Turner with Humphries and that pick. You're right, they're assets, so the 76ers are going to want something in return. Hump and that pick aren't enough.
Sixers decided to bundle the two players for a first round pick since they could only get a 2nd rounder for Turner alone due to RFA status. With Hawes (UFA) there is more incentive for another team to provide a 1st rounder.
Philly is rebuilding and getting back their 2014 Protected Pick from the C's is better than getting the Clippers #1 in 2015 since Philly would be assured of a pick from 1-20 in 2015. They don't want players back unless prospects so prefer a #1 and expiring contract. Hump and their own protected gives them exactly what they are looking for.
OKC would give up one of the late 1st round picks and maybe PJ3 but we wouldn't need to resign Bradley for $8MM and could give him up as well.
Again, I'd do that trade.
I'd also include the 2015 Clippers pick. I then try to resign both players.
Got to get rid of Bass' contract tho in another trade. He is tradable for an expiring at the very least. Then:
Rondo (12), Pressey(.5),
Turner(10), Bradley (6)
Green (10), McDermott(2), Wallace (10)
Sullinger (1.5), Olynyk (2)
Hawes (8), Embiid (4)
That would be a competitive team. So would Jabari / WCS.
I only worry about the Rondo, Turner, Green combo. I much prefer a Rondo, Tuner, Haywood combo.
