Madelyn Burke: The Sixers have been banged up this season, but the hiatus amidst the Coronavirus pandemic might be just what this team needed to reset. Ben Simmons is back. Joel Embiid. Shoulder, Tobias Harris and Al Horford needs have all had some much needed time to recover. Joining me now is SI NBA writer Rohan Nadkarni. Rohan, this talented Sixers lineup has had its struggles this season. How much patience does the front office have with this group of four looking to break up the band and start fresh?
Rohan Nadkarni: That's that's the million dollar question. How much patience are they willing to have everything. Historically, Elton Brand and I say historically as if it's been a long time, it's only been a few seasons. Elton Brand has been willing to wheel and deal quite often with this team saw starting with Tobias Harris, traded most for Jimmy Butler trades and now that Al Horford signing and he's been quick to kind of blow things up here. And I think the question for the Sixers moving forward is do you use the pandemic to give this group another chance or do you use the pandemic to be like. 'I think we're going to cut our losses and kind of trade some pieces here.'
Madelyn Burke: And you know what? When healthy, this is one of the most impressive lineups in the NBA. We'll see if the Sixers stay with it for a high note. Rohan, Thank you so much for the time.
