Back on Track: Sixers win in Denver, 108-105 - AP report via CSNPhilly.com
The Eagles are 0-1 and the Flyers are 0-2 in 2010. The Sixers are now 1-0.
After a last second shot by the Denver Nuggets failed to go through the hoop as time expired the Sixers claimed their first victory of the new year and finally reached double digits in the win column. At 10-23 would you believe that the Sixers are just 4.5 games out of the playoffs? Isn't that just embarrassing?
Now the Sixers are also in the Tracy McGrady trade watch. There would be no real benefit on the court this season but his expiring $23 million contract could help GM Ed Stefanski find some room to build a contending team. It would likely require trading Andre Iguadala.
Not sure how to feel about it. The team looks like a mess still so I would prefer a higher draft pick, but what do you think?
