Sixers could and should take both Omer Asik’s and Tyreke Evans’ contracts off of New Orleans’ hands. NO gets major relief. Sixers get Bird Rights to a local kid who fits their needs–a scoring guard who compliments Ben Simmons as a secondary playmaker and ballhandler and to defend multiple positions. Sixers development staff would then focus on Evans’ three point shot, like they did with LMAM and Carl Landry.
