As the trade deadline has passed and many teams are now starting to place playoff bids, the Sixers did not take any action in trades (not that it's a bad thing).
One the biggest talked about aspects of trades in the NBA is when teams decide to make their own "big three."
It first started with the Boston Celtics and then the Miami Heat. The Knicks carried on by getting Melo and now this is has become the biggest goal for every GM.
So what am I getting at here?
I am trying to say that the Sixers could have taken part in this as well by acquiring Danny Granger and Chris Paul and still keep Andre Iguodala and Elton Brand.
Yes it is true and it was possible.
*Note: All of these deals would have worked out financially if it were before the deadline.*
