If you were looking for a blockbuster trade from Sixers GM Elton Brand, this isn’t it. If you were looking for a deal to add some much-needed three-point shooting and bench scoring, today’s your lucky day. Just before 1:00 AM, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news of a deal between the Sixers and Golden State Warriors for Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks:

The Sixers are sending three second round picks back to Golden State as part of the deal:

  • 2020 second-round pick (via Dallas)
  • 2021 second-round pick (via Denver)
  • 2022 second-round pick (via Toronto)

Woj did point out one complication: the Sixers will need to create two roster spots prior to today’s 3PM deadline via separate trade(s) or waiving players:

Robinson has taken advantage of increased playing time on a talent-depleted Warriors squad, averaging 12.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.8 assists in 31.6 minutes per game while shooting 40% from deep. In his last ten games, he’s upped that percentage to 47.1% from deep.

Burks has been no slouch, averaging 16.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.1 assists in 29 minutes per game, shooting 37.5% from deep. In his last ten games, he’s upped that shooting to 41.5% from deep.

Hopefully Robinson and Burks will get cleared to play tonight in Milwaukee, where the Sixers will need all the shooting help they can get.

    Don’t care who they waive as long as one is Mike Scott.

    That Rowhome guy has to be furious about the SOTUA. Trump totally dominated the left and grew his base. How bad did they look when they didn’t cheer for black unemployment and black universities?

          I know. This sucks. They impeached our guy.

          He has the greatest nicknames and respects America and the National Anthem.

          Double entendres and stuff.

          Who needs an education?

        Very unlikeable team. starting with the owners. This year looks cooked. Brand boxed them into the worst straight jacket ever, Durant comes back next year, other teams like Boston have $$ room to flesh out, and Miami is loading up.

        I never saw a window shut so fast in my entire life. I look at other teams and they have normal freaking player who like SHOOT, don’t go up and down like a yo yo, and aren’t head cases.

        Brown has had a bigger hand in this than we think. His obsession with defense and incompetence has left us nothing.

        “Star Hunting” gave us *Tobias Harris*?

        This franchise has always been cursed with the most blithering idiots in the FO and GM.

        Shawn Bradley.,Roy Hinson, Arnett Moultrie, Andrew Bynum- you name it. These clowns fit right in.

        It will only change when Harris goes and maybe, maybe someone competent owns the team

    Oh, great. Because of these jamooks I can’t put my prop game bets in or even set up my daily fantasy until late. The new guys might or might not play, guys I’m putting on daily might be gone. The sixers always find a way to screw you.
