[While chugging directly out of my pepto bismol bottle]
Here's another one to watch out for in this summer of HELL. The Sixers, after considering Josh Smith are also looking at Andris. Yes he's restricted but still, just the possibility that someone could snatch him and that our team could be collapsing before our eyes is hard to stomach.
The others on the Sixers' radar, include Los Angeles Clippers' unrestricted free agent Corey Maggette and two restricted free agents, Golden State's Andris Biedrins and New Jersey's Nenad Krstic.
And by the way, sources are also saying that Maggette is finishing a deal up with the Spurs:
Maggette, who opted out of a $7 million contract, has been popping up all over the league as a possible acquisition, although his agent, Rob Pelinka, has not commented publicly; the San Antonio Express-News indicated the Spurs were close to a deal.
I wouldn't be so sure though because I found that article (http://www.mysanantonio.com/sports/basketball/nba/spurs/stories/MYSA070408_SpursMaggette.en.1f4e7bd9.html) which was assuming that the Magic were (who were heavily courting Maggette) had considered Maggette second to Chris Duhon... who just signed with the Knicks!

Shoot me or get this summer over with.
