Mailbag: Should the Sixers have pursued Cam Reddish? Do they need a stretch 5?

Did the Sixers make a mistake by not pursuing Cam Reddish, who the Hawks traded to the Knicks yesterday for a heavily-protected first-round pick?

In today's newsletter:

  • Mailbag: Should the Sixers target a stretch 5?
  • Mailbag: Why didn't the Sixers have interest in Reddish?
  • Details on tonight's game against the Celtics.
  • Link roundup.

I received a bunch of mailbag questions yesterday. I won't be able to get to them all today, but I'll get to a few quick ones now, and try to include a few here and there on days when there isn't a lot to talk about. I'm also going to grab a few of them and dedicate a column to them, so look for that in the future.

Feel free to send an email to and I'll look it over, and potentially include it in a future mailbag.

Let's get to it.

Any idea why Sixers not in market for athletic wings like Reddish, who seemed to have been acquired for a low price? – Steve
