Report: Sam Hinkie is Trying to Trade for the First Pick in the Draft

YES YES YES. YES YES YES.

From Chad Ford’s Mock Draft on ESPN, via Philly.com, via Slam Magazine:

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.

    Wiggins is not going number 1…he has a ton of upside and I don’t think you can go wrong with him, Embiid, or Parker….but Embiid is going number 1. Teams don’t pass over 7 footers with outside range who continue to get compared to Hakeem, fair or foul, that’s the way it works.

      And he will be continuously be compared to Greg Oden or Hasheem Thabeet when he either A) breaks his back or B) can’t adjust to the league because he’s only been playing for 3 years.

    Could work & here’s why: Cleveland could move back to 3 and still get Embiid, who is the guy they want. His agents have apparently told the Bucks not to take him (not sure what their leverage is). Milwaukee could still pick Embiid and try to get something for him from Cleveland, or they could trade #2 to Utah who desperately want Jabari Parker. That might be the key to the whole draft. If Hinkie can’t move up it might be worth it to hijack Utah. How often does an athletic Mormon basketball star with a Duke pedigree come along?

      Parker doesn’t look Mormon. Are you sure of that?

    The Parker to Utah speculations simply because he’s Mormon are fucking stupid. And to the guy praising Embiid, have you watched him play at all? No doubt he’s talented. No doubt he has untapped talent and potential .but he got MUSCLED whenever he played against a legitimate center in college.

      Who, exactly, did he get “MUSCLED” by? There weren’t many legit centers in college last year. There certainly wasn’t a legit center in the Big 12 so that rules out half the games Embiid played (and if you say Isaac Austin from Baylor “MUSCLED” him up, we need to go over the definition of the word “MUSCLED” and the phrase “legit center”). I watched a lot of Kansas games and saw some weaknesses in Embiid’s game (mostly on the offensive end) but I never saw him get “MUSCLED” by anybody.

        Oh good, you mastered the ability to cut-and-paste one word. Now work on connecting them with coherent thoughts. This isn’t your diary, jackass.

    The speculated price to move from 5 to 3 from that teenage fuckboy Bill Simmons was #5, Alec Burks, and a 2015 or 2016 lottery protected pick. So I think Cleveland will try to milk more if they’re going to trade their pick.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they drafted Wiggins and traded Waiters. They’re not very fond of “Ball Hog DWaiters” in Cleveland.

        Angelo,

        Most commenters will think that ‘you’ are a random commenter using the Angelo Cataldi name. But I know this to be the real you.

        You should use the handle “Angelo1Chair”, as a quasi-tribute to another Philly media personality that, once the microphones were off, completely dropped any charade of human decency.
