Per Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice a couple of days ago, the Sixers are open to trading their 28th overall pick.
Remember when former team President Bryan Colangelo traded a future first and an early second to move up to pick 25 to select Sixers’ legend Anzejs Pasecniks in 2017? The Orlando end of that deal could be a possibility tonight as well.
The ultimate scenario is you get a guy everybody loves, so that you can either play him during the playoffs, or wield his trade value down the road.
