On this episode, TrillBroDude of the "You Know Ball" podcast joins us to discuss the state of the red-hot 76ers and some theoretical trade scenarios as slop season approaches. Topics include:

  • What's powering the Sixers' recent 18-4 surge?
  • How real is Philly's fourth-ranked defense?

  • What's the ideal offensive role for Tyrese Maxey?
  • The P.J. Tucker conundrum
  • What starting lineup will Doc Rivers settle on come playoff time?
  • Why swapping Maxey and Tucker for OG Anunoby could make sense for both the Sixers and the Raptors
  • Why the Raptors need to take advantage of a seller's market to retool their roster
  • Some other lower-level targets the Sixers can/should pursue
  • What to make of the Rui Hachimura trade between the Wizards and Lakers
