Five Fake Sixers Trades
The Opening Tip
Hello & Happy Friday - It's the Corner Three!
Oh Yeah, The Sixers
A mere 14 days from draft night and while the Sixers have a laundry list of things to sort through this summer (stop me if you heard that before) let's focus on their 23rd pick and who could/should be there, assuming they keep the pick and don't trade it, which I think they're actually much more apt to do.
Top Tier (To me)
I told you you'd get to know him and love him. 6'8, athletic as hell, guards 1-4 and can do a little bit of everything. Moves the ball well on offense and certainly knows how to attack the rim in transition, as violent as they come. Reports recently though are that his workouts haven't been anything to gush over and his jumpshot will need some help translating so essentially he's already a Sixer. I highly doubt he stays until 23 because even with the concerns there's almost way too much potential, but if he's there it has to be the pick.
A guy who literally got better as the year/season went on and an absolute tank. Can shoot, defend, and even improved his three-point shot, imagine that! He can get lost in the shuffle on offense and your probably don't want him dribbling much but he's got a solid midrange and good touch around the rim, pivotal for a team that smoked layups like a pack of exotic.
I'm not big on Notre Dame guys in the league but he has DAWG potential. A straight turnover machine on defense who's big enough to get physical and absolutely wired to attack the basket on offense. I have sincere and relevant questions about his three point shot (surprise, surprise) but Doc Rivers won't play him until he's 30 anyway.
Next week we'll cover 2nd and third tier and possible non-pick/trade scenarios!
