Eastern Notes: Dunn, Sixers, Bucks

The Sixers are interested in drafting Providence’s Kris Dunn should the team have a pick in the range where the point guard is projected to go, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Dunn is the fifth-best prospect in the upcoming draft, according to Jonathan Givony of Draft Express, while Chad Ford of ESPN.com has him as the seventh-best prospect. The Sixers are currently atop our Reverse Standings, meaning if the season ended today, they would be a guaranteed one of the top four selections. Philadelphia owns a top-three protected first-rounder from the Lakers, a top-10 protected first-rounder from the Heat, and a top-15 protected first-rounder from the Thunder.

If the Lakers somehow fall out of the top-3 that would be the best thing for the NBA… Sixers tanking would be over, especially if they signed a swingman in the offseason to go with Noel, Embiid, Saric, Okafor, Simmons, and Dunn. Undoubtably they’ll offer max to Barnes, Beal, and Clarkson depending on who they draft. Or they could flip Noel for Jae Crowder.

I doubt the Celtics would do that deal of Crowder for Noel. Also, how do you expect them to draft both simmons and Dunn? Both are likely top 5 picks. Simmons wouldn’t be a good next to Okafor, Noel or embiid as they are all low post back to the basket players that can not shoot.

He said if the Lakers fall out of the top-3, in which case, the Sixers take ownership of that pick. That’s how they get Simmons and Dunn. Possible? Yes,about 1 in a billion.

I honestly think if they do get #1 pick and not LA’s pick they should trade down and pick Kris Dunn.. Don’t know what else they could get back for the pick too, maybe unload a contract like Landry or something? Just feel like that’d be in best interest of their team. Anyone got thoughts on my opinion?

I think if they aren’t sold on Simmons then they should definitely take Ingram before they consider trading back.
