Report: Sam Hinkie is Trying to Trade for the First Pick in the Draft
YES YES YES. YES YES YES.
The Sixers actually have engaged the Cavs about moving to No. 1. They aren’t willing to give up both the Nos. 3 and 10 picks. But a combination of No. 3 and Thaddeus Young is a possibility. And it’s a great scenario for Wiggins, as well. Of the three top teams, his camp prefers the Sixers as the best possible fit. This could be a win-win for both. [Editor’s note: <3 <3 <3 <3].
The Bulls have been trying to move up in the draft to get an elite shooter. Their target has been Denver with an offer of the 16th and 19th pick for 11. If they get there, Gary Harrisor Nik Stauskas will be the guy with them likely leaning toward Stauskas.
If Sam Hinkie trades the Sixers’ number three pick and Thad Young’s $9.4 million cap hit for the number one pick (so he can draft Andrew Wiggins, please) he will forever get a pass from me for whatever he does, forever and always.
