OKC draft pick will go to the Sixers at 21
The Sixers have solidified their 1st round draft pick spot for the upcoming NBA Draft thanks to the Oklahoma City Thunder and a bit of good luck from a tiebreaker.

Sixers fans became OKC fans when the NBA resumed because OKC’s success had a direct relation to the Sixers getting a 1st round draft pick. Mike Muscala hit a 3-point shot with time expiring in the last seeding game for OKC which gave them a win and allowed their 1st round pick to convey to the Sixers.
Sixers then won the tiebreaker for the 21st pick. They now currently own picks 21, 34, 36, 49, and 58. The Sixers have the most draft picks in the 2020 Draft.
