76ers trade Kyle Korver

Saturday, December 29, 2007 ·

The Sixers have traded forward Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz for Gordon Giricek and a first-round pick.

Great first move by Stefanski. Though Korver was our top three-point threat, he was extremely overpaid, couldn't play defense and has become expendable with the more athletic play of Rodney Carney and Thaddeus Young recently. The best part of this move is the fact that Gordon Giricek is a free-agent this season, which will give us even more cap room in the offseason.

"We are excited about acquiring a player of Gordan's ability, as well as an additional asset in the form of a first-round draft pick," 76ers general manager Ed Stefanski said. "This move will provide us with increased salary cap flexibility this offseason and also allows us to continue our evaluation and development of the young talent we have on this team."


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.
