CBS Sports Likes The 76ers

CBS Sports released their latest NBA Power Rankings and highlighted six teams who should be happy about their prospects for the second half of the NBA season and beyond. Right in the middle of that list, are the Sixers.

"When the Eastern powers begin jockeying for playoff position, it'll be no surprise if the Knicks are a targeted Round 1 foe. That's because they figure to go down a lot easier than the fast-rising 76ers. Once again, Doug Collins is working his first-year magic in Philly, even if we're just beginning to see the results. Recent wins over the Magic, Nuggets and Suns have brought to light two things: 1) Jrue Holliday is awfully good; and 2) this athletically gifted bunch will be a handful once Andre Iguodala returns to the lineup."

The question for the Sixers going forward this year, is whether they decide to keep Andre Iguodala and make a run at a #7 or #8 seed, which is very doable, or do they deal Iguodala for some combination of cap relief and picks/young players with upside?
