A day before the NBA draft we finally are starting to hear rumors on what Daryl Morey, Elton Brand, and the Sixers might do. ESPN NBA Insider Brian Windhorst FINALLY gave us some insight that the Sixers are eyeing two key vets for their bench.
Eric Gordon and PJ Tucker.

Tucker just opted out of his $7.5 million dollar deal with the Heat. So he knows he is in for a raise. He also has a relationship with Daryl Morey from Houston and we have seen Morey’s relationships help the Sixers out already (Dwight Howard.) Tucker averaged 7.6 PPG, 5.5 Rebounds, and 2.1 Assists. He also has that tough nature the Sixers need.
Gordon has spent the last 6 seasons in Houston and is coming off an ok season. He averaged 13.4 PPG, 2 Rebounds, and 2.7 Assists. He also has a relationship with Morey and would be a huge asset off the bench and a much needed upgrade.
