USA Today


Article Summary:

As the Philadelphia 76ers prepare for the 2021 NBA draft at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on July 29, we look back on past drafts.

The Sixers began the 2013 NBA draft with just the 11th pick in the first round as they were looking to bounce back from an underwhelming season in 2012-13.

Hinkie traded Jrue Holiday to the New Orleans Pelicans for the 6th pick, which turned out to be Nerlens Noel, but Philadelphia then selected who they were hoping would be their point guard of the future in Michael Carter-Williams with their pick at 11.

Carter-Williams had a terrific debut as the Sixers took on the defending champion Miami Heat on opening night of the 2013-14 season. He had 22 points, 12 assists, seven rebounds, and nine steals to lead the Sixers to a shocking win.
