Sixers interested in adding additional first round pick
The Philadelphia 76ers made a major move by cashing in an asset to acquire the top overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, but they may not be done move making.
The Sixers remain interested in adding an addition first-round pick in Thursday’s NBA Draft, according to General Manager Bryan Colangelo.
The most likely scenario is that the team tries to package some of their four second round picks (36, 39, 46, 50) and maybe a young player on a team-friendly contract – looking at you, Jahlil Okafor – to move back in to the mid-to-late first round. It would take a more significant investment on the Sixers’ end to acquire a selection higher than a post-lottery pick.
Expect Colangelo to continue working the phones leading up to – and during – Thursday’s draft.
