Atlantic Notes: Ingram, Anthony, Ferrell, Love

The Sixers will bring in Duke small forward Brandon Ingram for a workout on Monday, according to Brian Seltzer of This confirms a Twitter item from The Vertical’s Shams Charania on Friday that Ingram was coming in for a workout with Philadelphia. The Sixers are expected to select either Ingram and LSU power forward Ben Simmons with the top pick in the draft. Ingram will be the only participant in the workout, Seltzer continues. Philadelphia has not held a workout since June 2nd because president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo was overseas, visiting 2014 lottery pick Dario Saric and scouting in Italy. The Sixers have conducted five other workouts sessions with six invitees in each one, Seltzer adds.

In other news around the Atlantic Division:

  • Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek believes Carmelo Anthony still has the ability to carry the team, though he needs some help, Hornacek stated on the Boomer and Carton radio show via Adam Zagoria of “I think [Anthony] just turned 32, so he’s right at that prime time for him,” Hornacek said. “He’s going to help to carry this team but we can’t put it all on him. The other guys have to step up and if he’s having a tough night the other guys are able to fill in.”
  • Indiana point guard Yogi Ferrell displayed a good shooting touch in workouts with the Nets and Knicks last week and may have boosted his draft stock, sources told’s Ian Begley. The Knicks don’t have a draft pick but are hoping to acquire one, according to Begley. The Knicks have worked out several prospects in recent days with an emphasis on the triangle offense, Begley adds. Ferrell is currently ranked No. 80 on ESPN Insider Chad Ford’s Big Board and No. 63 by Draft Express’ Jonathan Givony.
  • The Celtics must decide if a Kevin Love trade is worth pursuing and how they would fit the Cavaliers’ power forward into their offensive scheme, Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald opines. Love thrives when the offense revolves around him, as it did when he played for the Timberwolves, but the Celtics — like the Cavs — have a score-first point guard in Isaiah Thomas, Bulpett continues. Love’s defensive shortcomings are also a major consideration since he’s due approximately $68MM over the next three years, plus the Celtics’ wealth of draft picks probably wouldn’t interest a title contender like Cleveland, Bulpett adds.

    Celtics would probably need a 3rd team to get love, cavs won’t need the picks or young players they need help now.
    If I’m the Celtics I’m calling bout Marc gasol. Young players and picks to help there rebuild. Conley might be gone this offseason and they have no one to replace him

    • Jack Ass

      Marc Gasol turned 31 in January. So basically you want a 32yr old? You have to win NOW! That’s a terrible player for the Celtics to go after because of his age

      • LeBron turns 32 at the end of the year, but I’m sure you wouldn’t mind him. The Celtics aren’t getting any young stud player (Jimmy Butler, Paul George, DeMarcus Cousins, etc.) without giving up pieces of their core (i.e. Crowder, Smart, Bradley). While Gasol might still cost one of Smart/Bradley, the rest of the pieces wouldn’t be as impactful.

        • Bbone34

          Lebron James=Marc Gasol? Wow! A 32 year old Center with injury history is much different than one of the best players of all time. Lebron is leaving his prime but is was so good he’s still better than 99% of players. Marc is leaving a prime of top 5 Center so probably he’s looking at average Center production if he stays healthy for like 2 years. Not my cup of tea

    If the Cavs (that means YOU, Lebron!) had held on to Wiggins instead of rushing out to get Love, they’d have had a much better chance to win this season. I hope the Celts don’t make the same mistake of trading a good young player for a limited veteran.

    • How do you know that? Wiggins has succeeded because there isn’t any pressure on him to deliver a championship right away and he splits touches with Towns, so he gets plenty of looks. If he stayed in Cleveland, he would’ve been expected to be contributing at a championship caliber level by the end of his first year and would’ve been playing third fiddle to LeBron and Kyrie.

      • BC Wiggins would be on the court at 5 M over JR Smith as a starter, and they could have gotten a better wing player to let LBJ slide to the 4 during small ball situations. Deng comes to mind.

    I think Bradley, crowder

  4. Talking about Anthony reaching his prime at age 32, BULL, it so happens that he’s been playing like he’s in his prime for years, but stuck on a losing team. How much longer can he keep it up? He needs to get out of Dodge, now!
