BUDDY HIELD, A SIXERS DISAPPOINTMENT, GOES TO DUBS FOR A PICK!

By Tommy Matthews

The Warriors are acquiring Buddy Hield in a sign-and-trade with the Sixers, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium (Twitter link).

The Sixers will receive a 2031 second-round pick, which is part of the Klay Thompson sign-and-trade with the Mavs. That suggests the moves could still be folded together into one multi-team mega-deal.

However, the Warriors could also complete the series of transactions separately, creating a trade exception for Thompson’s outgoing 2024/25 salary and acquiring Kyle Anderson (via sign-and-trade with Minnesota) and Hield within that TPE.

Charania reported on Tuesday night that the Warriors were pursuing Hield, and now a sign-and-trade has come to fruition.

In 2023-24, Hield appeared in a league-high 84 regular season games, exceeding the typical 82-game limit as a result of a midseason trade that sent him from Indiana to Philadelphia. He averaged 12.1 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in 25.7 minutes per game for the Pacers and Sixers, with a .386 3PT%.
