(ESPN) – While Sacramento probably doesn’t have enough cap space to sign two of them, it is getting closer after striking a deal with Philadelphia that calls for the 76ers to absorb the contracts of Carl Landry and Jason Thompson — along with Sacramento’s 2014 first-round pick, Nik Stauskas — to help the Kings take their cap space this summer past the $15 million threshold.
Grantland.com’s Zach Lowe reported Wednesday night that, to complete the trade, Philadelphia also will receive a protected future first-round pick from the Kings while agreeing to swap picks with Sacramento in the first round of two other future drafts.
Wowowowowowow. Who knows if this mad scientist draft strategy will work for Sam Hinkie but even if it doesn’t I am thoroughly impressed with his efforts. Dude is running an NBA franchise like he’s playing NBA 2k15 AND IT’S WORKING. First thing I always do when I start Franchise Mode is trade for no less than 7 future 1st round picks. It’s just smart GMing. Didn’t know it was actually how real life worked too. Pretty neat!
Noel, Embiid, Okafor, Sauce Castillo, 5 FIRST ROUND PICKS NEXT YEAR, infinity cap space, new en fuego uniforms… watch out world the 76ers are making moves
dont hold your breath though!
