So Embiid got max, Okafor for cheap?


Oakafor showed up in great shape and has been playing well this preseason. My guess is someone will pay him all the probably won't be the 76ers. They're probably still looking to trade him because he's redundant for them

Who's better: Embiid or Towns?


IF healthy Embiid all the way. His defense is also stellar.


I think Embiid is the best Center in the league if healthy, but that's a big if. Anthony Davis is also a monster but he's made of glass.

So of the the three, Towns is probably the least impactful but the healthiest. I would choose him.

I'm not sure he's the best fit for us. The 76ers are aggressively shopping him so it will be interesting to see what they get.

The key is always health. He hasn't been able to stay around long because he's got Bynumitis.

This is one that Philly's going to end up regretting. Big men with so many lower-body health issues almost always flame out. Unfortunately, I see no reason not to believe the same will happen with Embiid.
