Spike Eskin joined Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie on Friday's 94WIP Morning Show to discuss the Sixers' future and intrigued the crew with his idea of a "pause year."
"I think the best one would probably be a situation in which next year is almost a pause year, as you reorganize and try to put yourself in position for the next three," Eskin, the host of The Rights To Ricky Sanchez podcast, said. "And I think you would be a good team...where they win, 47 games, 48 games and Maxey develops and those sorts of things.
"Unfortunately, it seems at this point that their best path to staying as good as they are right now is to re-sign James Harden and I just don't think it's going to work."
Eskin mentioned the difficult situation facing Daryl Morey and the Sixers, as they head into the offseason with a dearth of assets. It has been reported by Chris Haynes that Harden is going to decline his $35.6 million player option.
The Process is hanging on by a thread, whichever way you slice it.
