The Sixers are well-stocked at center, with Andrew Bynum arriving to join Spencer Hawes and Kwame Brown. Lavoy Allen could also man the position, and rookie power forward Arnett Moultrie, at 6'11", gives the team yet another big man, notes Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio. That makes the Sixers one of the few teams with size in the NBA, giving them a distinct advantage this year, Amico writes. It could also lead to some player movement, and Amico has the details:
- Philly's frontcourt bounty has some around the league believing Brown, Hawes or Allen will be available at the trading deadline, if not sooner, Amico says, adding that other teams are already preparing to gauge the Sixers' interest in a deal.
- The Wolves are in the market for a center, and though they haven't reached out to the Sixers yet, they've had exploratory discussions with other teams, Amico hears. Still, the talks have subsided in recent weeks.
- Amico hears Chris Andersen, whom the Nuggets waived using the amnesty clause last month, is open to a one-year deal. Jared Zwerling of ESPNNewYork.com reported earlier today that the Birdman has received offers from between $1.2MM and $5MM, though the high end of that range seems a stretch, as Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors observed.
