Cleaning out the locker: If the Sixers lose, what should they do next? Mark Haubner, The Painted Area: The Sixers are in a quandary: They have multiple quality 23-or-under players, but can't truly contend to win the East in the near future with the present roster. Philadelphia might need to deal Andre Iguodala for improvement in the long term, though it could be a serious short-term hit to lose one of the league's best wing defenders. Rob Mahoney, The Two Man Game: Secure Thaddeus Young, don't give Spencer Hawes the benefit of the doubt with an extension, and hope for internal improvement. The Sixers' books are pretty cluttered, and if there's a market for Elton Brand's bloated deal, I know not of it. Philly should let Young, Evan Turner, Jrue Holiday, Jodie Meeks, Louis Williams and Marreese Speights incubate and see what happens. David Thorpe, ESPN.com: Punt. Doug Collins has wrung all that could be wrung from this roster. They have too much money tied up in guys who are just too flawed to anchor a 55-win team. Time to move them, but try to keep Holiday and Young in the process. Jeremy Wagner, Roundball Mining Co.: Pray that Evan Turner can improve enough after a disappointing rookie season to help the Sixers challenge the Hawks and Magic for home court in the playoffs, while counting down the minutes until Elton Brand's contract expires in June of 2013.
