10:52 AM ET 12.05 | The Cavaliers might not ever get a player like LeBron James again in our lifetime. But they might be able to acquire "LeBron Lite." League sources indicate the Philadelphia 76ers are attempting to trade guard/forward Andre Iguodala. There is no active dialogue between the Sixers and Cavs right now, but a source said it was one to keep your eye on. Things could heat up toward the trade deadline. He would fit nicely into the Cavs' $14.5 million trade exception.

Note to the Sixers: Please let me know what I can do to see this deal go thru.

Iggy isnt a first option which is what the cavs need... you cant try to force a guy to be something they arent which is why their are issues with him with the 76ers

Agreed.Iggy needs a passing point guard cause Iggy is a Robin that is hyped as a batman.With a Nash,Paul or D Will Iggy would become an allstar.

He'll still be going to a team with a bunch of other Robins, Penguins and Jokers.

This kind of lets you know that if they are really considering this that team is going to be down for a while

the league knows that he is a robin..the sixers found out the hard way ..you would think the other teams would take heed to that

Meant to quote you with my other post.I think iggy can be a great asset to the right team......but not cleveland

I agree totally....now i think he would do good with the hornets and other one star teams........and your also on point about not investing in that if your rebuilding

And what does it mean if they aren't considering it since the article basically admitted this is media speculation when it said Neither side has discussed anything?

that its still early?

gilbert will have to do something next year because he isnt going to be able to take the empty arena

Little backround on this reporter/paper, this is the 3rd or 4th largest paper in a not that large metro area. He writes decent stuff but hasn't exactly been dead on with his trade rumor stuff over last few years. To be fair he even says there are currently no talks just something to keep an eye on. Believe this when I see it.

Iggy is overpaid by at least $10MILL per year.
