The Philadelphia 76ers did not have a great year and honestly my heart goes out to Doug Collins, who is one of my favorite coaches no longer in the league. I wish him the best, but it is time for the 76ers to move on and they clearly have their eye on the 2014 draft, which is the best move for them although the Jrue Holiday trade was just not a good trade. They should have gotten a lot more back than they did, but what is done is done.

The player who the 76ers should target? Jabari Parker. Chances are they will not land the number one pick which will most likely be Andrew Wiggins, but they could have a shot at Parker if they have a top four pick. It is a possibility Aaron Gordon and Julius Randle are drafter ahead of Parker, but this all comes with the caveat that Parker may stay in school for more than one year.

We will just have to see if Parker is singing the same tune next summer when he is looking at a guaranteed multi million dollar contract.
