The 76ers have wasted no time trying to acquire a much needed shooter under Eddie Jordan’s new offense, and have acquired shooting guard Jason Kapono in a trade straight up for Reggie Evans.
Although Reggie Evans is the man, and a fan favorite, it seems like a pretty good move to bring in a guy who can come off the bench and knock down three pointers, much like Kyle Korver could. Kapono is 28 years old, and is a 45.4% career three point shooter. This is a huge need for the Sixers, since they have finished dead last in the NBA in three point shooting the last two seasons.
We don’t expect Kapono to start, and it is definitely a good move, however, we would still like to see something done so Willie Green is not the starting shooting guard next season. Either way, it is a good jump to the offseason under Eddie Jordan, and hopefully the Sixers are able to make their team even stronger come the draft.
