The Sixers have expressed interest in acquiring another first round pick in this year’s draft.
GM Bryan Colangelo stated that he’s “not going to give up those efforts” simply because they’ve moved up to the first pick in the draft. It’s not clear where in the first round the team is targeting but assuming they’re going with Markelle Fultz as the top pick, the Sixers are sitting pretty with a young core that’s oozing with talent and upside. Sam Hinkie’s moves may have been gambles when he made them but they’ve certainly put the team in a good spot for the future (which could be here sooner than we think). Looks like the process is paying off.
