Sixers To Trade Khyri Thomas To Detroit

10:20pm: Detroit will be sending two future second-round picks, Vince Ellis of The Detroit Free Press tweets.

10:14pm: The Sixers will be trading No. 38 pick Khyri Thomas to the Pistons, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports tweets. It’s unclear what will be heading back to Philadelphia.

While Detroit could have waited and hoped for the Creighton product to be available at No. 42, Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders notes that the Lakers would have certainly taken him at No. 39.

Thomas is a two-time Big East defensive player of the year that had first-round buzz. The 22-year-old averaged 15.1 points per game in his junior season.

    Oh, we wont have Fultz, Smith, Shamet and Thomas play the same position? I figured we would reup Redick and Belinelli and play them as a starting 5.

    Detroit has been trying at that combo guard spot the last couple of years. Makes sense replacing Avery Bradley. I thought he’d go higher

    Let’s wait & see what Philly gets, before we can see if it is good swap or not.
