As a Sixers fan, I can unequivocally say that we (yes, I’m speaking for everyone) want no part of Melo. The Sixers lead the league in passes per game and have an unreal defensive rating when Embiid is on the floor. So we’re going to add a ball-stopper and uninterested defender who’s old and expensive to boot? Let’s keep the ball in Embiid’s hands, and Simmons’s hands when he gets back, and let the team grow around them. I wouldn’t take Melo for free.
