How do the sixers get the lakers pick next year?

Do the sixers get the pick if it is 6 or lower? For example, lakers get the 10th pick then that goes to the sixers? I know boston gets if it lands between 2 and 5.

this is a Deep Draft -they can do Much better than a role player

They won't get a Super Star from 6 to 10

But at this point I don't think they want any more star players - since they have 3 w/ Fultz, Simmons & Embiid who will develop into a nightmare in a few years

But they're gonna end up w/ a Really good young player like Bridges or Jaren Jackson or Lonnie Walker or Colin Sexton.

Or they can do what Minnesota did last summer by trading the #7 pick for Jimmy Butter & Phila has a ton of Cap space to go after a Max free agent next summer

Fultz hasn't shown anything

Fultz hasn't shown anything yet. Calling him a star is a questionable statement to say the least. Simmons and (healthy) Embiid is another thing. They rock! If philly get the pick they should go BPA and think about it later. Why not hit another player with star potential, the more the better.

The Sixers just have to hope

The Sixers just have to hope the Lakers aren’t aweful, but don’t make playoffs. You’re in luck: that’s exactly where LA is. I’d be shocked if the Sixers lose the pick. It would take some lucky ping pong balls for Boston to get it.

Philly will have Reddick and

Philly will have Reddick and Johnson coming off one year deals so even with Embiid's extension kicking in will have good cap space. We all talk about next year's draft being 5 deep top tier but there will still be good players after that. Philly won't be looking for a franchise changer more likely a very good prospect to fill a specific need.

If they luck on top pick then start raising the 2020-21 Championship banner. If pick goes to Boston then Philly still have Kings 2019 first rounder which is likely to be fairly high too.

Let me try and clear this up for you.

So let me clear this up for the original poster of this post. I believe the 76ers made a trade with the Lakers for Andrew Bynum in 2012. (a center that the Lakers originally picked out of high school with the 10th pick of the 2005 draft. He is compared to Shaq on this site. For a couple of years he did turn out, and I believe in 2012 the 76ers made that trade. Unfortunately he didn't turn out for the 76ers, and because of that you don't hear his name anymore. But the pieces of that trade still need to be satisfied.) (Not quite sure if this was the actual trade, but there was some trade between the Lakers and the 76ers before the 2015 draft) So the terms of that trade were that that the 76ers would have the pick in 2015 if it was outside of the top 5. It happened to be the 2nd pick that year, so the pick went to the Lakers (De'Angelo Russell). So then the traded pick went into 2016, where once again the terms were that the pick would go to 76ers if the pick was outside of the top 5 (may not be those exact words, but I think you get my point) Once again the pick landed at 2, so it went to the Lakers again (Brandon Ingram). So now the pick goes into the 2017 draft. Once again, the wording was the same, the 76ers have the pick if it lands outside of the top 5. Once again for the third time in a row the pick landed at 2, so the pick went to Lakers and they picked Lonzo Ball. Now this coming year in 2018 the pick is unprotected. meaning that no matter where the pick lands it will go to the 76ers.

So, yes, the 76ers will likely pick in the lottery again in 2018 even though they are likely to make the playoffs this year. This will be their final pick in the lottery until they decide to develop once again. This year, they won't be getting a franchise player because the pick still depends on how the Lakers finish the season. The Lakers will likely not make the playoffs but they won't be so bad that the pick ends up in the top 5. I think the pick will likely land somewhere between 5-10, and they will likely just pick a player to fill a need not necessarily a franchise player. This player might be a future starter in their lineup of Fultz, Covington, Simmons, and Embiid or he might end up being a rotation player like Saric, McConnell...etc. but regardless he will fill a need and not be a franchise player that the 76ers and the rest of the league can depend upon to be huge. Those 4 are already given to us (Fultz, Covington, Simmons, and Embiid

This is also due to the 76ers hiring Sam Hinkie as their GM back in 2014. He was notoriously known for making all of these trades and therefore stealing picks from teams just so he could land several picks for the 76ers in just a few years (2014-2017 to be exact) He has since left the 76ers and they replaced him with Bryan Colangelo just last year I think. He is a good GM, who shouldn't act like a trade maniac like Sam Hinkie was. (lol)

Hopefully this clears it up for you.

Nope, the Lakers pick comes

Nope, the Lakers pick comes from the MCW trade with the Bucks.

I remember Shaq said that

I remember Shaq said that Bynum was the best center in the league over Howard...this was before the trade to Philly. Shaq never compared Bynum to himself though..lol

Getting someone like Colin

Getting someone like Colin Sexton, jaren Jackson, Miles Bridges, Kevin Knox, Robert Williams would be a phenomenal add for Philly. Those players would definitely have trade value too if they wanted to go after a veteran that was a better fit.

Miles Bridges could be a good

Miles Bridges could be a good call for them as he'd be a nice bench option and as a combo forward covers a couple of needs. Plus he has had an extra year in college so should be more NBA ready.

With Fultz in situ and Simmons being on point duty, taking Sexton may not seem obvious but if they possibly see Fultz playing more as a combo guard then Sexton gives other options. The 2nd unit would need a ball carrier and he could be a fantastic 6th man and impact scorer plus he has nice defensive potential.

If a lights out shooter type at SG or SF moves up the draft in due course then I could see Philly going for someone who fits that profile,
