Looks like Al Horford is going to OKC for Green. The Thunder are also getting a first rounder and a second. No detail on what picks are involved.

Is an interesting indicator of what “buying picks” by taking on bad contracts will cost (since many of of hope we’ll do that), though Green does also have some use as a player in Philly.


Maybe they didn’t have enough 1sts that far away?

Lightly protected 1st in like 2025 and 34 this year. Works for the sixers, thunder add more picks while probably moving on from Adams

That’s a discouragingly high price for a first rounder that’s years away and an early second, TBH.

Maybe Horford is considered redeemable so his value is less negative?

OKC might have preferred the pick to be that far out. Philly's 1sts don't project to be all that attractive for the next few years. All of Embiid/Simmons/Harris contracts run out before 2025. So they could be in rebuild mode by that point. Also "lightly protected" could be as loose as only top 1 protected, who knows.

Per Woj, this injury involves his right leg. His previous injury was his left ACL.

Yeah, that's encouraging. But if he's projected to miss a lot more additonal time, they could use the draft more for the future than the present. Or prioritize some salary relief in a trade back from 2.

That said, none of their core is exactly young so they probably look more towards the present.

Nice to see DJ Augustin get out of Orlando and sign with a contending team. (Milwaukee, 3 yrs, $21 mil). He's been so solid over the years. Hard to imagine that some actually thought RJ was the better player.

His defense was atrocious when he was playinng for us, I imagine it still is.
