Wait. What???? C’mon. You can’t be serious.
It’s no lie, but honestly — who cares.
The even bigger news is that Hinkie traded Jrue Holiday to the Pelicans for Nerlens Noel (Picked #6 — He dropped down the draft board like Ryan Howard when he tore his Achilles) and a 1st round pick in 2014.
BAM. POW. Nice to meet you Sam Hinkie.
That’s right, in one of the more chaotic drafts I can ever recall, the Sixers made a huge trade that sent the face of their franchise packing and in return received an athletic 7-footer and an extra Lottery pick in 2014. They then selected the 21-year old Carter Williams (6-6; 185) at #11. Not one of the online “experts” we researched nor a single scout that I talked with prior to the draft predicted the Sixers would go in these wild directions.
Sam Hinkie is owning this 2013 Draft.
After the jump some reviews on and video of MCW…
