Jersey makes a trade w/ Philly

Recommended Posts

Sixers trade Diekembe Mutombo to DIVISION RIVAL New Jersey for Todd McCullogh and Keith Van Horn.

I'm scratching my head over this one...

NJ now has a pretty good frontcourt of Mutombo, KMart, and Jefferson...

What does philly get? A big stiff, and a wuss.

What's going on there?

I think this actually hurts both teams - Mutumbo is aging quickly, and eventhough he's not in Hakeem O. territory just yet, I'm not sure he'll be able to hold up for a whole season. Furthermore Mutombo is an offensive black hole and limits the effectiveness of Jason Kidd as he will have one less option to look to. In Philadelphia they get two younger players for Iverson not to pass to. How can they expect Van Horn to fare any differently than Stackhouse, Tim Thomas and countless other players brought in to be a second scoring option for Iverson to dish the ball to.
