Sixers Do The UnThinkable During The First Round Of NBA Draft

by Kurt Gies June 28, 2013

Going into last night's NBA Draft, there was a lot of speculation that almost everyone on the Sixers was on the trading block, except for their only All Star and team anchor, Jrue Holiday. Many hoped that Evan Turner was the main piece of trade bait that somebody (anybody) would trade for. 

It would all start when the New Orleans Pelicans announced their 9th overall pick to be Nerlens Noel (6'11" Center from Kentucky). But something didn't add up. The Pelicans drafted former Kentucky center, Anthony Davis in the 2011 draft. Why would they need ANOTHER (almost) seven footer.

 But Nerlens was on the move....

WARNING: The next tweet you're about to see may alarm you, cause severe stress, sadness, anger, and denial. 

No one is safe under new Sixers GM, Sam Hinkie. At first, the reported trading Holiday and a 2014 1st round draft pick enraged the Philadelphia Twitter community. But after a correction from Yahoo! sports, the trade would also include New Orleans' first round pick in 2014 and not the Sixers 2014 first round pick.

 

With the 11th overall pick in the first round, the Sixers would draft point guard Michael Carter-Williams from Syracuse. MCW, a versatile 6'6" point guard, will be Sam Hinkie's attempt to replace Jrue Holiday at the point guard position. Sam Hinkie's first round strategy in 2013 showed that this is the way the Sixers will rebuild, through the draft.

 

It's uncertain what will happen in 2014 and what Sam Hinkie's "master plan" really is, but one thing is certain. The Sixers aren't going to be a very good basketball team in 2013.
