With the Lottery Order Set, the Sixers Should Have their Choice of Guards

lottery order

The lottery balls fell pretty much where they were supposed to — the only team that got screwed was the Knicks, and that’s fine — and Chad Ford has the draft shaking out as it does above. Both highly touted big men will likely go at one and two, leaving the Sixers to have their pick of D’Angelo Russell, Emmanuel Mudiay, or anything crazy Sam Hinkie wants to do.

Seems like Russell is ready to play with his buddy Nerlens:

As for those picks that didn’t convey this year? The Lakers pick is top-3 protected next year, the Heat is top-10 protected again, and the Thunder’s pick is top-15 protected. So, #OneFourElevenSixteen is a real possibility next year.

We’ll have much more in the coming weeks.

  1. So Noel/Embid/Russell/possible 4 lottery picks/Saric. If you cannot turn that into a contender than someone is doing something wrong!

    1. They’re not going have four lottery picks next year, Skippy. The Thunder pick is top 15 protected, which means we won’t get it if it’s a lottery pick (1-14).

  2. The Thunder will finish with a top 5 record next season. The Sixers will end with that pick falling somewhere between 25-30. If Bosh returns and Riley makes wise roster moves the Heat figure to end up around 15-16 so that would be the Sixers/Heat pick. The Lakers are going to make a big jump with Okafor, Kobe and some free agents. I see the Lakers being no worse than 12-14. The Sixers themselves will be much improved. I put them around 10th.
    So your 2016 picks will be at best 10, 12, 15, 25. You might be able to move up a few notches combining picks. Who knows what the 2016 draft class will look like. The Sixers will most likely be adding complimentary pieces with those mid round picks. Hinkie will be making tons of trades moving some of those picks out to the future. The team actually has too many assets.

    1. What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I’ve ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on this site is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points , and may God have mercy on your soul

      1. We didn’t listen to it, you fuckstick, we read it! How fucking dumb are you? Go back to 97.5, stooge.

    2. Maybe with allllll those assets we could use them to trade with Houston so we can bring back the great K.J. McDaniels who everyone was so upset we gave away, but he’s yet to take his warmups off since the Rockets acquired him. I mean even Bill Simmons thinks he’s the next Scottie Pippen and Kyle has confirmed he’s the greatest sportswriter of allll time

  3. D’Angelo Russell might as well start looking for places to live in the Philly area,because he’s damn near guaranteed to be a Philadelphia 76er in 37 days.

    1. Hey if he’s looking for a down to earth south philly family he can stay with us! LOL! We can offer some of the best Italian food you’ll ever eat buddy! Go sixers!

      1. Hey Cuz, just offer him your old house in Washington Township, NJ. Thrown in a Primo Hoagie, a new car from Family dealerships, and set him up with BOB Marino at Valley Green Bank. Then hire a real south Philly guy to show him around the city.

  4. Dangelo Russells tweet may be in reference to joining the Lakers who jumped ahead of the Sixers.

  5. Draft porzingus. Best player in the draft. Just needs to work on his defense

    1. Eat a dick Euro John,the next time a European player you hype up develops into a halfway decent player will be the first time a European player you hype up develops into a halfway decent player.

  6. Which guys are injured, won’t play next year and/or overseas and won’t come? There’s the Sixer’s pick. In the meantime, the Sixers will dump their best player for a bag of chips.

    1. The days of Sam Hinkie drafting and stashing lottery picks overseas are over.

  7. And cue the music from the usual suspects in the media of how Hinkie sucks and has a terrible plan. Yes I’m talking to you Howard Eskin, Angelo Cataldi, Dick Jerardi, and Marcus Hayes, as I guarantee they’ll get their 2 cents in despite saying the same thing for the past 2 years.

  8. …just a reminder…do not use your phones to access the internet. Use a computer dipshits.

  9. #OneFourElevenSixteen? Okay, I understand you they could get #FourElevenSixteen, but HOW do they get #One?

    Awwwww, shit!

  10. I’m not a big basketball fan at all, and I really haven’t been paying much attention to Hinkie’s plan.

    After last night, is this the way Hinkie’s plan is supposed to go? I’m basically asking if it’s “working” because I honestly don’t know. Can someone fill me in?
