I would rather get Holmes from Philly. He could play PF or C on the second team.

Fultz is going to have some issues with the glaring lack of intagibles, mark my words.

Not that I necessarily disagree with it, but I'm not sure why you want these players. Korkmaz, in particular, I don't think he would get mins in Boston.

Intangibles?  What does that even mean?  Fultz will have issues on the defensive side, getting comfortable with the NBA 3pt line, adjusting to all the good NBA PGs.  For the Sixers, it doesn't really matter this season.  They can afford to bring him along slowly.  Embiid, Simmons, Covington and Redick are all more important to their success this season.

Neither would Okafor. Only Saric is worth targeting from that trio, and he would cost more than we should give up for him.

he means winning leadership. Fultz never wins at any level. Doesn't act like a leader. Quiet, lackadaisical, eyes half closed all the time. Spends more time promoting chick-fil-a and jbl headphones on social media than working on defense

Korkmaz was one of the best shooters in his draft class, your 100 % right, he would not get a lot of minutes, on a rookie contract,might turn into a good role player. Okafor is a wide body that can score and help with spacing. Saric is another big that can score and also help with spacing and adds another option for Brad

Except that he led his High School team to the WCAC championship with a 33-5 record...

And won the MVP award while leading the FIBA U18 USA team to a gold medal...

So it seems more like he wins at every level except his 1 year at college.

And oh, you donít like him advertising on social media instead of working on defense? Itís funny, you know who that actually sounds a lot like? Heís a guy you apparently really like. Kyrie Irving.

Do you share similar concerns about any other NBA players who promote their "brand"?

There's room for both, but I'd like to see guys spending their summers adding skills, too.

Lets see.  Fultz didn't start playing varsity high school ball until he was a junior.  Dematha went 33-4 and 33-5 in his junior and senior seasons.  That looks like winning to me.  He led the US national team in capturing the gold medal in the 2016 FIBA Americas U18 Championships.  Fultz was the tournament MVP.  Seems like more winning to me.  Yes he didn't win at Washington but his coached sucked and his teammates sucked. 

As for the Sixers, they don't need him to be a leader now.  Embiid provides the leadership they need.  Simmons will run their offense.  Redick and Amir provide good veteran presence.  With Embiid and Simmons big personalities, Fultz being quiet is probably a plus.  That being said Fultz has been talking a lot this offseason about the Sixers making the playoffs.
