A record 39 players were moved at yesterday as well as more than a dozen potential draft picks in what can only be labeled the most entertaining trade deadline day in history. Personally, I have never had so much 76ers related fun on Twitter.
Of course 76ers General Manager Sam Hinkie was mixing it up something fierce yesterday as the Sixers were part of three significant trades. As you know by now, starting point guard Michael Carter Williams and rookie sensation KJ McDaniels are departing, along with the draft rights to Cenk Akyol. On the way to the Sixers are two protected 1st round draft picks and big man JaVale McGee. Depending on which online “expert” review you read, Hinkie is either a genius or has set the Sixers’ rebuild back another 3 years.
After the jump I’ll provide Pros & Cons analysis of each trade Hinkie pulled off yesterday.
