Sixers President and GM Bryan Colangelo Today at 3:05
At last night’s NBA Draft lottery, the Philadelphia 76ers were awarded the third overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. The Sixers swapped picks with the Sacramento Kings as a result of a 2015 trade.
Today at 3:05, Sixers president of basketball operations and general manager Bryan Colangelo will stop by the Sports Bash to discuss the team’s plan moving forward.
Last night via a press release Colangelo said: “Tonight was a great night as we continue to build our team into a contender,” Sixers President of Basketball Operations Bryan Colangelo said. “There really was no way to walk out of here disappointed given the possible outcomes we faced. We’ll now zero in and focus on drafting a quality player at No. 3 who adds to our dynamic young core. We also now have clarity that we’ll have a 2018 unprotected pick from the Lakers.”
The Sixers also have four second-round selections in the 2017 NBA Draft, which were acquired in trades made with the Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks and Utah Jazz.
