Our Sixers insider, part of Liberty Ballers, called in to talk about the ESPN report saying that the Sixers are after the first overall pick. They have contacted the Cavs about trading for it and are willing to give up the third selection and Thaddeus Young. They are said to be unwilling to surrender both top-10 picks. The player they are after is Andrew Wiggins, it's been Wiggins all along. Bodner also chats about the possibility of drafting Dario Saric, a foreign player that could wind up staying overseas.
Talked about the deconstruction of the Phillies and proclaimed them as: "done." Law said that the trades and decisions made by the Phillies is what really did them in, having no analytic guy in the front office.
