Jerry Colangelo and his boys in Philly made it clear they don’t think it ridiculous that they can contend for the top free agents this summer.
Ridiculous for premiere players to want to play in a town with deep basketball roots, alongside the “next Lebron”? Nah, that’s not the worst pitch.
But you don’t get back on track by giving toooooo much money to Harrison Barnes, which the Sixers are set to do, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.
It was bound to happen with all of these Golden State guys once they become free agents. Mo Speights and Leandro Barbosa will join Harrison Barnes in getting more money than they probably should this offseason, because they’re connected to a “great” team in the Warriors. Next year? When Bogut, Iguodala, Livingston, and Festus are all free agents? Some team will come knocking with too much money, and that team will be the Sixers.
