Sixers Offering Noel, Covington, Picks For No. 3

The Sixers have put Nerlens Noel, Robert Covington, the No. 24 overall pick, and the No. 26 pick on the table in their talks with the Celtics for the third overall pick, reports ESPN’s Marc Stein (via Twitter). Stein reports (via Twitter) that Boston has been holding out for a better offer, with Jimmy Butler at or near the top of Danny Ainge‘s list of targets.

Philadelphia has already nabbed Ben Simmons with the first overall pick tonight, and is believed to be targeting Kris Dunn at No. 3. According to David Aldridge of NBA.com (via Twitter), the Sixers believed a few hours ago that the Celtics and Bulls were “far along” on a trade involving Butler, but that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore.

Still, the C’s and Bulls have had extensive discussions involving Butler. K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune tweets that, in addition to the No. 3 pick, Jae Crowder has been a part of those discussions. Avery Bradley is a potential piece as well, tweets Johnson.

That 76ers offer isn’t something they should do

This would be such a terrible deal for Philly. Noel is a good fit next to Simmons as a solid defender and rim protector, and doesn’t need the ball to be effective on offense (and by effective I mean catching lobs). I don’t know why Philly wants Dunn so bad. They just drafted a ball-dominant facilitator in Simmons who needs to have as much shooting around him (which Dunn doesn’t quite offer.

Based on what colangelo said a couple of previous times, I think they may have been considering a combination of simmons/Murray or ingram/Dunn, but I may be wrong

This is a terrible deal for the Celtics.. 2 more role players and 2 additional draft picks when the team is full of role players and they have 8 picks already..

I think a trade went down… Silver hasn’t come up to the mic yet.
