Ty Lawson was still available. So was Eric Maynor, Jeff Teague and Darren Collison. Each of these guys would have helped the 76ers reach the NBA playoffs next year as a # 6 or # 7 seed, you know NBA Purgatory. Each of these guy’s, the Sixers, more or less would have known what they were getting, solid players but not necessarily difference makers.

Instead they took a chance on a guy’s upside. Jrue Holiday could very well turn out to be a bust but he also has the potential to develop into a top PG in the league. It is tough to get better when drafting at #17 but the Sixers picked with an eye to the future, took a chance, and hopefully will be rewarded down the road.
