Last night was Elton Brand’s first draft as Sixers general manager.
And he did some wheeling and dealing.
The Sixers started with five draft picks — No. 24, No. 33, No. 34, No. 42 and No. 54.
When the draft dust settled, they added two players, including Washington forward Matisse Thybulle, selected at No. 20 after a trade with the Boston Celtics.
Brand also traded Jonathon Simmons to the Washington Wizards.
Here’s how the Sixers roster currently looks, factoring in the new draft picks and which players are currently under contract
– C Joel Embiid
– PG Ben Simmons
– G/F Zhaire Smith
– F/C Jonah Bolden
– F Matisse Thybulle (rookie)
– G/F Marial Shayok (rookie)
