ESPN released their 15th-12th rankings today. I original thought that Bynum would have been in between the 15th-20th spots for the ESPN rankings. He was named number 13 in the rankings. Blake Griffin was number 14 and Rajon Rondo was number 12. That is a solid ranking for Bynum. If everything goes to plan this year he will likely crack the top ten next year. That would bold well for the Sixers.
In other news the Sixers have invited forward Dan Gadzuric to training camp. He worked out for them today, according to John Mitchell of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Gadzuric was traded by the Knicks in July in a sign and trade to the Trail Blazers. He was waived by the Blazers right after. The 34 year old has appeared in 527 NBA games and has averaging 4.7 PPG and 4.4 RPG.
Here is the Sixers complete rankings now that Bynum’s ranking has come out….
#13- Center, Andrew Bynum. Arguably, the second best center in the game. The best offensive center in the game. If he is ranked in the Top Ten next year, that means all is good in Sixers land. Well, of course he has to sign here…
#73- Guard, Jrue Holiday. If he can takeoff this year the Sixers will be at another level.
#91- Forward, Thaddeus Young. He is aiming for that starting PF spot. I am rooting for you bro.
#118- Center, Spencer Hawes. Mr.Softy higher than my boy ET? Me not like..
#119- Guard/Forward, Evan Turner. Break-out year? Please be or I will look like a moron.
#121- Guard, Jason Richardson. The VET still has some game left.
#165- Guard, Nick Young. Should be the first guy off the bench…SWAG..
#182 – Forward, Dorell Wright .He can knock down an open three-ball Sixers Fans!
#232 – Forward, Lavoy Allen. He had the biggest jump in rankings out of any player. He was Mr. Irrelevant last year #500.
#332 – Center, Kwame Brown. Well, he is Kwame Brown.
