Just announced, Sixers made a trade to collect another second round pick.
Daryl Morey and the @sixers have announced acquiring the No. 53 overall pick in tonight's NBA Draft from New Orleans, in exchange for cash consideration. The pick originally belonged to Dallas.— Lauren Rosen (@LaurenMRosen) July 29, 2021
The 76ers now hold picks 28, 50, and 53.
But why? Why are the Sixers giving away cash for a se one round pick on draft day? The answer isn’t, pick 53 will be a game changer. It won’t. The answer is, this is a sweetener pick. They are adding assets to throw into a package to acquire another player. This is the most exciting trade for a second round pick I’ve ever seen. Fingers crossed something much bigger is in the works.
