Sixers Notes: Leonard, Brown, Okafor, Stauskas

The Sixers “sniffed around” the idea of an offer sheet for Kawhi Leonard earlier this summer, sources tell Grantland’s Zach Lowe, who adds that the team was simply performing its due diligence. The same is true of the Sixers and Jimmy Butler, Lowe hears. Butler had reportedly been scheduled to meet with Philadelphia but put those plans aside while he considered an offer from the Bulls, with whom he eventually re-signed. Leonard re-signed with the Spurs. The primary focus of Lowe’s piece is on former No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett, whom the Sixers are apparently looking into adding. See more from Philly:

    The Sixers wished they were coming into this year with a healthy Joel Embiid, the #3 pick, plus they would have had OKC and Miami’s pick this past summer if only those teams would have made the playoffs. If Embiid were healthy on draft night, they could have went Porzingis with #3, and let’s say Jerian Grant and Delon Wright.

    As it is, Hinkie is filling in point guard last, because that hole in the lineup allows the team to develop front court and wing talent, while ‘tanking’ again. If the Sixers get Ben Simmons with their pick and Jamal Murray with the Lakers pick they own, to go with Embiid, Okafor, Noel, Saric and sharpshooter Robert Covington, look out…..

    If Simmons is the closest thing to Magic since Magic, Jamal Murray has a little Stevie Nash in him….
