Reports: Sixers Move Justin Anderson and TLC, Add Mike Muscala in Three-Team Trade

Looks like the Sixers are turning the Carmelo Anthony situation into a three-team transaction that addresses the Nemanja Bjelica abnegation and moves some fringe players off the roster.

The reports:

Got all of that?

Atlanta takes Melo and waives him. Muscala gets moved to Philly and TLC and Justin Anderson are shipped out.

I think this probably makes sense for each team involved. Oklahoma City gets a monstrous salary and tax savings while moving on from a guy who I don’t think was a great fit for that team. The Hawks eat Melo’s salary and move Schroder to make room for Trae Young, and the Sixers trim TLC and Anderson from the roster while bringing in Muscala to play some backup 4/5.

Muscala is 27 years old, a career 38% three point shooter who I think can give you some stretch four minutes off the bench next season. He’s played more center than power forward recently, backing up Dewayne Dedmon for the majority of last season, but he’s a capable second option to spell Dario Saric and allow you to still spread the floor a bit. Muscala played 53 games last year with 7 starts, averaging 8 and 4 in 20 minutes per game.

Here are the career numbers for the 2013 second round draft pick out of Bucknell:

As for TLC, he had his chances last year and didn’t do much to impress, did he? Justin Anderson played some quality defense in the Miami series but dealt with a shin injury that kept him in and out of the lineup. With Wilson Chandler and Zhaire Smith on the roster, the Sixers probably felt satisfied with the backup wing spots to the point where they were able to cut down the roster.

  1. Whoa, gas up the trucks for the parade.

    Meanwhile Kyrie, Jimmy Butler and an unnamed 3rd player are reportedly already planning to move to sign with the Knicks next year. Fuck this league.

    1. what else can you do? The Lakers and Knicks get the luxury of playing where they do. All the more reason to tank and hope you draft a superstar or two. The Knicks have had one decent season since Patrick Ewing retired and the Lakers have been putrid since Kobe retired, yet geography allows those two bungling franchises to reap the rewards. That unnamed 3rd player is Kevin Durant i believe.

      This trade is actually a decent one for what it is. TLC and JA were not going to get any minutes here, so at least we got a big who can stretch the floor.

    1. Cuz, congratulations on being number one in the ratings and only banging chicks who win beauty pageants.

  2. Brett Brown reminds me of billy king .
    Also congrats to the cuz for overtaking Angelo in the ratings . Cuz is Philly for life

  3. I heard last night that the Cuz does not only get chicks off with his huge 10 incher, but he is also incredibly skilled at eating pussy too. How is that fair?

    1. Wow … I guess that’s why the Cuz is #1 in the ratings. Now that I know he has a 10 inch wiener I’ll be sure to listen every day!

  4. What’s the deal with these minorities ? T-shirt’s and shorts at a funeral? Crazy.
