Here’s What’s Become of Thad Young

With reports that Cenk Aykol is the piece the Sixers are sending to Denver in return for the hilarious JaVale McGee and a conditional first round pick (from OKC), here’s what Sam Hinkie has turned Thad Young into:

  • A few weeks of Alexey Shved
  • Luc Mbah a Moute (who may also be traded today, which may break the flowchart)
  • Cash money
  • JaVale McGee
  • Two potential 2015 first round picks
  • A 2015 second round pick (off chart)

Those first rounders are conditional. The first one comes from the Heat (by way of the T-Wolves) and is top-10 protected this year and next, and unprotected in 2017. The pick that just came today from the Nuggets was originally in possession of the Thunder, and is top-18 protected this year, top-15 protected in 2016 and 2017, and if none of those work out, it becomes a second rounder in both 2018 and 2019. So, if the Heat end up with a pick outside the top 10 this year, and the Thunder end up outside the top 18, the Sixers will have three first round picks in June. What a fucking dunce.

    1. Exactly, they’ll have 3 first round picks and choose a bunch of injured/foreign/potentially good players that will never pan out. Hinkie can get picks but does 0 with them.

      1. Like how Saric is playing abroad, getting valuable experience and racking up hardware while doing it?

  1. Hey Joshy boy, come rub my feet while I pretend to care about your horrible radio career.
