Picks: Nos. 3, 36, 39, 46, 50
Cover your ears, Sam Hinkie: Your successor, Bryan Colangelo, has said he's open to trading the Sixers' No. 3 pick, per Philly.com's Keith Pompey.
Dropping back a few spots holds intrigue if Philly is enchanted by De'Aaron Fox, Malik Monk or another high-end prospect who could tumble outside the top three. Dealing out of the top seven or eight entirely makes no sense. There isn't a smorgasbord of superstars available, and the ones who might be—namely Jimmy Butler and Paul George—hit free agency in one or two years' time. Philly doesn't yet hold the cache required to make those gambles.
Using the No. 3 selection on a point guard or three-and-D darling does the Sixers a far greater service. They could be a dark-horse postseason contender if Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons stay healthy, but they're still in the thick of a reset. They need up-and-comers who can play off their two most prized assets.
This is where things get thorny.
T.J. McConnell is technically the Sixers' best point guard, but head coach Brett Brown plans to stick Simmons at the 1. Taking another floor general lays the groundwork for imbalance if he can't zip around off the ball and fire on the catch.
That rules out Fox, and it most certainly leaves Lonzo Ball up in the air if he falls past the Lakers. He has the shooting chops to orbit another lead ball-handler, but he's so used to being at the center of everything that deferring to Simmons on more possessions than not could cause protracted growing pains.
Taking a wing allows for a more seamless fit. But who do they pick? Josh Jackson is a pesky defender and shot 37.8 percent from beyond the arc at Kansas, but his poor free-throw clip (56.6 percent) could prove ominous. Jayson Tatum is more of a one-on-one scorer than shooter. Monk is an elite sniper, but his size, at 6'3", won't do the Sixers any favors on defense.
With so many different scenarios fluttering around, Colangelo has his work cut out for him.
