What an exhilarating broadcast, all 60 minutes of it.
I especially loved the part where they put Elton Brand and Rich Gotham at the same desk. That wasn’t awkward at all.
Anyway, the Sixers are picking tenth. The 1.1% chance of getting the #1 overall pick did not materialize. The Celtics now get the better of the Kings/Sixers first round pick in 2019, top-one protected.
Here’s the updated list of selections the Sixers will have next month:
- 10 (via Lakers, 2014 MCW trade)
- 26 (natural pick)
- 38 (via Brooklyn, trade involving Brandon Davies, Andrei Kirilenko, Jorge Gutierrez)
- 39 (via New York, Arnett Moultrie/Travis outlaw trade)
- 56 (natural pick)
- 60 (via Houston, Shawn long trade)
And here’s how the rest of the top 14 shook out:

The Phoenix Suns will pick #1 for the first time in franchise history. Good for them.
Take it away, gentlemen:
