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.
