Sixers now have 7 second round picks
I just heard the Sixers did a three way trade with the Wizards and someone else giving them two more second round picks. If this is true I've never seen a team with 9 total picks in one draft.
Its actually 9 second round picks. They have 11 total now. This is amazing, the Sixers could draft an entire team. I wonder what they actually decide to do with them all though. Maybe flip the second rounders for first rounders from teams who don't want to pay a 1st round players salary.
More than likely some or most of those picks will be shopped for future picks. That's just how the game goes.
Yeah, I think it goes without saying they aren't going to use all 11 picks lol.
Two of the picks are future second round picks. Either way the Sixers have a lot of picks to play with in this draft.
I know about 7 of the picks, but what are the other two picks? Also isn't Philly suppose to give up two of those 2nd rd picks from a trade in the past?
Lets go 6ers, hey if u can't get 1st rounders stock pile 2nd rounders, then retrade them 2nds for 1st in the draft.
There are a good deal of automatically-eligible 1992-born European prospects that might not get drafted in the first round, due to not being ready immediately, buyout issues, or desire to stay in Europe a few more years, but that might turn out to be good NBA rotation players in three or so years.
There will also probably be othe Euros born in 93-95 that will fall. If Philadelphia kept five of those second round picks and selected foreign players, it is very possible that in three years at least two of them will become rotation-quality, which for a second rounder is tremendous value.
The Maynor picks are in 15 and 16 though I believe we have 5 second rounders this year and several at the top of the 2nd.....plus 2 1sts
Have you seen this team playing lately. Wroten, MCW, Noel and Thad are the only players they have worth keeping. They should use all 11 picks to fill out their 15 man roster. Obviously that won't happen but I like the fact that they at least decided to acquire assets instead of losing those guys for nothing.
Definitely increases their chances of snabbing a decent player, but at the end of the day, you have 15 roster spots...so it's not THAT great.
Yeah we should package the second rounders to get in the first at the back end
If this draft is deep enough, they can grab a couple of decent early/mid 2nd rounders. You know, there are always some 1st-round quality players that fall to the second round.
Looking at Aran's latest mock standings - Philly have 2nd pick (their own) and 11th pick (via NOP) in the first round. We assume they will draft with both of these and with Nerlens Noel coming back will form the basis on the 76ers rebuild next season.
The 32nd pick from Orlando is also an interesting asset to perhaps flip with a late first round team who wants to pay less salary, an obvious place for a team to buy into the draft or to maybe pair with the 11th pick to move up a spot or two in the draft. Also Sam Hinkie might decide to roll the dice their and just take BPA on upside as a freshman may fall into early 2nd round or he may just take a college senior to try and give his incoming class as much experience as he can.
With the other picks I certainly think they will look mainly for stashers either in Europe or keep the rights to US guys and see how they develop. I would doubt that the team would want more than 3 rookies coming onto the roster in any one year especially given that Noel has yet to play in the NBA and MCW is only a rookie.
