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.
