The hell with LeBron, if this deal goes through we’re gonna load up that song on a Zune and send it to Dion Waiters: According to reports, the Cleveland/Minnesota deal for Kevin Love may rope the 76ers in and bring Philly-native Dion Waiters back home:
“According to Sam Amico of FOX Sports Ohio, the Sixers may be interested in Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters. The speculation is that the Cavaliers and Timberwolves are in talks, as the Cavs are trying to acquire the T-Wolves star forward Kevin Love.
Amico’s report says there are “league-wide whispers” that the Sixers could be the third team involved in the deal, in pursuit of Waiters. Waiters, who played high school ball in Burlington, New Jersey, [was] born in Philadelphia.”
The rumor is that Thad Young would move to Minnesota in the deal, and dropping Thad for Dion would save the Sixers about $5 million over each of the next two seasons. However, as we have seen time and time again with Sam Hinkie, rumors probably don’t mean much.
