“Very good chance” 76ers trade 28th pick ahead of NBA Draft
With the NBA Draft only six days away, the 76ers might be moving on from the 28th pick. Earlier today, Kyle Neubeck of Philly Voice reported that there is a very good chance that the 76ers trade the 28th pick ahead of the NBA Draft. If the 76ers move on from their first-round pick, their only other selection will be the 50th overall pick.
Neubeck went on to say 28 would likely be moved for a win-now piece, preferably a starting-caliber player. During Daryl Morey’s first draft with the 76ers, he was incredibly active, acquiring Seth Curry and Danny Green while selecting Tyrese Maxey, Paul Reed, and Isaiah Joe.
There would be a lot of options if the Sixers were to hold on to their first-round pick. They have already brought in numerous players to work out, like Luka Garza, Austin Reaves, and Villanova’s Jeremiah Robinson-Earl.
For Ben Simmons, Neubeck said that the Sixers hold firm in their wanting of an All-Star player for Simmons and feel the offers rumored involving role players is to lower Simmons’ value. For reference, the 76ers will not move Ben in any trade to the Sacramento Kings unless De’Aaron Fox is involved. If they don’t find an offer they like, Philly is prepared to move on with Ben and Joel if needed.
