Chris Webber is coming to the Sixers!!!!!!

Finally Iverson will have a talented big man to complement his game.

The Kings traded Webber, Matt Barnes, and Michael Bradley to the Sixers for Corliss Williamson, Kenny Thomas, and Brian Skinner. It was reported on ESPN just now by Stephen A Smith but it isn't official yet, this is breaking news.

The Sacramento Kings and Philadelphia 76ers have completed a deal that will send Chris Webber, Matt Barnes and Michael Bradley to the Sixers for Kenny Thomas, Corliss Williamson and Brian Skinner, two league sources told ESPN Insider Chad Ford.

The Kings have called a news conference for midnight ET to announce the trade.

What is surprising, however, is what the Kings will get from the 76ers in return. None of the three players the Kings receive are as talented as Webber. Each has been struggling this year and all three have long-term contracts equal to the three years, $62 million left on Webber's deal. In other words, this isn't a salary dump by the Kings.

The Golden State Warriors are in serious discussions with the New Orleans Hornets to acquire Baron Davis before Thursday's 3 p.m. trading deadline, league sources told ESPN.com.

The Warriors have the expiring contract of Dale Davis to build a package around, but it's believed that other players from both teams would be involved -- as well as future draft considerations going to the Hornets -- to convince New Orleans to part with its former All-Star guard.

I'm not worried that we got rid of Webber. Last year we did just fine without him, and some believe we played better. The Sixers should be a big contender now with AI and Webber.

The Sixers also traded Big Dog Glenn Robinson for Jamal Mashburn and Rodney Rogers. It looks like Mashburn's career is probably over, but Big Dog wasn't playing anyway so they got Rodney Rogers to help vill the void left by Kenny Thomas and Big Nasty Corliss Williamson.

Look out for the Sixers in the East!

Yeah, the sixers made a huge improvement on thier team here, they should move up the seedings fairly quick, I bet AI is happy

Yeah Webber should give them a huge boost. I dont know too much about the other two guys. Rodney Rodgers played tonight for the Sixers, he's got some game.

I saw an interview with AI, he was like a little kid on Christmas morning. You could see the excitement, I cant wait for C-Webb's debut on Saturday against the .......ummm.......oh yeah....Sacramento Kings.

5 mniutes till tipoff.

The fans are going to give C-Webb a huge welcome in Philly tonight, against his old team. I think he and AI will mesh together well, hopefully in time to make some noise down the stretch and into the playoffs.

Kings won 101-99, Webber missed a shot a the buzzer that would have sent the game into overtime. He looked good though and played well with the other guys, Sacramento is a tough team. That puts the Sixers 3 games under .500 and 1 1/2 games out of first in the Atlantic behind Boston. Time to put a little winning run together and get this squad into the playoffs, it's a whole new season.

Man, that's just a slap in the face reminder of how bad the east is...

Iverson poured in 48 tonight against the Bucks. Last time he played them he had 54. Thankfully they still have another game gainst the Bucks. Chris Webber fouled out, they called a couple weak fouls against him that had him on the bench for a good part of the game before he picked up his 6th.

I'm going to the Sixers game tomorrow night against the Nets. Should be an exciting game with AI and C-Webb and Jason Kidd and Vince Carter. I have great seats, going with my dad, brother, and brother's girlfriend, it's my brother's birthday. Go Sixahs!

Hope you enjoy the game, man! Should be a good one, tow of the better teams in the east, and both made moves this season to improve.

Thanks Gibbs, it was fun but the Sixers lost. They looked really tired, they played in Milwaukee last night. They couldn't make much and Webber had a pretty bad game. They need to put something together, they're running out of time. It would be pretty sad if they were to miss the playoffs.

woah, I hadn't looked at the standings in a while, they aren't looking too hot right now. Hopefully C-Webb finds his shot here shortly, I'm beting he will in a week or two...

Anyone else watching the sixers just own the Pistons?

It's 84-60, and it's the end of the 3rd quarter...

Of course, the Pistons did play last night, and they are missing Hamilton...

Yeah, the Pistons were raped. Allen Iverson had 39/10(assists) and Andre Iguodala had a triple double with 10/10/10 and added four steals without any turnovers. Chris Webber had a really good scoring game, I think the most efficient since he's arriving in Philly. The Pistons had no response and were missing their head coach and leading scorer. I think the Sixers might be able to put up a nice run for the rest of the season after a confidence boosting blowout win like this.

I hope so, I'd love to see them do well this year in the palyoffs, even though they don't stand much of a chance for the title.

I don't even think the sixers will make the playoffs. Unless Webber steps up his game and the bench start helping out and Korver doesn't sit in one spot waiting for a three-point shot, they have no chance!
