Per Kevin O’Connor of The Ringer, the Sixers are dangling the 23rd pick in the June 23 draft and veteran Danny Green:
The Sixers are exploring trades involving this pick and Danny Green, according to sources.
While Green was an important two-way wing for the Sixers, he tore both the ACL and LCL in his left knee in May and now he has an expiring $10 million contract.
If they end trading the pick, I’d imagine a raw, high-upside player like Blake Wesley would have wide appeal.
If the Sixers keep it, taking a swing could pay off since they don’t have a first again until 2024 after the Nets deferred this year’s pick to take Philly’s 2023 selection instead.
That’s a bet that the Sixers will be worse.
