Sam Hinkie, on baseball trade deadline day, wants you to know he has no off switch … even if the deals are minor. According to a press release, “the Philadelphia 76ers today announced they have acquired forward Gerald Wallace and a draft consideration from the Golden State Warriors in exchange for power forward Jason Thompson.” What that draft consideration could be is unknown at this moment, since the Warriors don’t have a second-rounder until 2019 (according to Derek Bodner).
Wallace arrived in Golden State via the David Lee deal, and Thompson came to the Sixers in the Stauskas deal. It’s expected Wallace will be cut. We’ll have more here when more is known.
