Marc Jackson: “I’m Looking to Package Those Two Picks’
The Philadelphia 76ers want to be aggressive this offseason.
One of the ways they can do that is trading up in the NBA Draft, and per former Cleveland GM David Griffin, that's something they are exploring.
"Philly is very much looking to move up to get somebody they think will go in the top five,” Griffin told SiriusXM NBA Radio.
The question would be, if they wanted to move up, which prospect would they be willing to move up to acquire.
Appearing on the Sports Bash on Friday, NBC Philadelphia Sixers analyst Marc Jackson says he would look to move up in the draft, saying: "10th in wonderful but five would be even better."
"I'm looking to package those two picks to move up and get a better player," Jackson said.
He went on to say that he felt Michael Porter Jr. would be a guy he would target in trade into the top five.
"He could be a superstar in this league," Jackson added. "He is a franchise changing player."
