Should Sixers Make Deal with Celtics to Draft Kris Dunn?
The Sixers have had their sights set on finding a franchise type point guard for awhile now. Last year they struggled through a 10-win season with T.J. McConnell and Ish Smith getting a majority of the minutes at the position.
Now there are talks that they are in talks with the Boston Celtics, who own the No. 3 overall pick, so the they can get their hands on Providence point guard Kris Dunn.
So is there a deal to be made between the two teams?
One key question leading up to any deal would be, who do the Sixers value more, Jahlil Okafor or Nerlens Noel and who do the Celtics value more between the two big men?
According to sources, Boston is more interested in Noel, but at this stage the Sixers have been unwilling to part with him.
So is now the time for the Sixes to part ways with their plethora of big men if it means getting Dunn back in return?
A 22-year old, natural point guard who could be a key part of not only their future but be ready to help this young team now. He is a solid defensive player, who needs to work on his outside game, but can score in the paint.
The Sixers definitely have a logjam in the front court, but at this time I am unwilling to move Noel and would do whatever I could to hold on to him. That doesn't mean I am hoping to move Okafor either, but for this deal I would at least consider it.
In the end I think the two teams end up getting a deal of some sort done with Okafor heading to Boston, the Sixers landing Dunn.
