Sixers fan here...wanted to get the opinion of NBA fans around the league of whether or not this deal would work. I am fully aware at the value of this draft class and the superstar potential that exists, especially at the top of the draft. For those who don't know, we own the Pelicans 1st round pick (top 5 protected) as well as our own, which will most likely be in the 1-5 range. The concept, for me, is to try and package this:
Pelicans pick (figure 8-12 range)
2 of our 5 second round picks
in exchange for
A top 5 pick
Now, I could see a team that might have some major pieces and just caught a bad year possibly doing this. A team like the Magic with Oladipo, Vucevic, and Afflalo might entertain this. Thad Young, a proven talent, and a pick essentially less than 10 spots down in addition to some hopeful 2nd round picks might get it done.
I really just wanted to post this because I think it would be insanely awesome if the Sixers were able to land both a Wiggins and Parker combo. It makes sense for us as we try to build through the draft with potential superstars. So what are your thoughts...if it was your team would you do it?
