Sixers In Talks To Add Another Top 10 Pick

The Sixers are in discussions with teams about trading for a pick that they’d sandwich between the third and 10th overall selections that they already possess, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, who includes the news amid his latest story on Joel Embiid‘s foot injury. Philadelphia has also reportedly inquired with the Cavs about the top pick as it pursues top target Andrew Wiggins, so it seems GM Sam Hinkie is pursuing several options with a week to go before the draft.

There have been rumors regarding trades involving many of the top-three selections, though all of the clubs linked to such chatter are seemingly trying to either move up or find veteran help. Thaddeus Young is the only established veteran of note whom the Sixers have to offer.

Hinkie and company have had their eyes on point guards, with Dante Exum and Marcus Smart under consideration, Wojnarowski writes. Smart isn’t in the mix for the third pick, but Exum is, the Yahoo! Scribe adds.

I always said they could ship Thad young plus a 2nd rounder or 2 to Sacramento for dead salary and their #8 Pick. But i wanted them to pick up a PF if they were to get Wiggins or Parker at 3 then take Stauskus at 10.

Young isn’t worth a top 10 in this draft, if anyone bites on this they deserve to get fired.
