Moultrie and Harkless are just two of many new faces in Philly

It has been a very active, but yet interesting summer for the Sixers this year as we have seen many players leave and replaced them with many new faces. I will evaluate the moves made by the Sixers, and give my final overall grade for the moves made.

Departures: Lou Williams, Elton Brand, Sam Young, Jodie Meeks, Craig Brackins, Tony Battie, Xavier Silas.

Additions: Nick Young, Dorell Wright, Kwame Brown, Maurice Harkless, Arnett Moultrie, Royal Ivey, Maalik Wayns

Along with those moves, the Sixers kept some of their own free agents. They re-signed Center Specner Hawes to a 2 yr-$13 million deal. Hawes played pretty well last season as he averaged 9.6 pts and 7.3 rebounds per game for the Sixers. He also averaged 9.3 pts and 6.6 rebounds in the postseason last year. Hawes will likely pair up with Kwame Brown this year, as he is likely to be moved to the starting Power Forward position with Elton Brand now in Dallas.
