The 76ers have some tough offseason decisions to make – do you re-sign Spencer Hawes? Do you see what the market will offer for Andre Iguodala (again)? Elton Brand is entering the last year of his deal, can you move him?

Every day, Sixers fans are playing GM on Twitter anyway, so Sixers CEO Adam Aron decided to make it a little more formal. He wants to know what you think and tweeted this Tuesday morning.

YOUR OUR TWITTER GM: Name 1 or more current Sixers you believe MUST be on roster next year, 1 or 2 you’d trade and why… “KEEP: TRADE:”

It’s a nice marketing move. There is no chance that the Sixers are seriously considering your eight-team trade that nets the 76ers Kevin Durant and Kevin Love for Jodie Meeks, but the fact they are asking comes off well.

In an interactive, social media world why not reach out to the fans and get their thoughts? You know they want to get rid of Iggy anyway, why not confirm it.
