Utah stretch five Tibor Pleiss will be traded to the Sixers in a package for Kendall Marshall, two future second round picks and cash according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
Even though it became clear in recent weeks that the Jazz had soured on Pleiss, we think he can stick in the NBA and he’ll give the Sixers something they desperately need in outside shooting. Pleiss won’t be on the radar early on unless the Sixers can move one or two of their excess big men. Marshall will be waived if we had to guess. Joel Bolomboy will probably make the roster and the Jazz have been pretty excited about him.
Update: The Jazz have waived Marshall. Woj adds that the Sixers aren’t sure if they’re keeping Pleiss, which seems pretty odd.

Sixers are still evaluating whether Pleiss will be a part of roster this season — or waived, league sources tell @TheVertical.
