CAMDEN, N.J. — The Sixers entered Thursday night’s draft with five picks. They left, in the early hours of Friday morning, with two players.
The team traded the 57th pick to the Detroit Pistons for cash considerations, a team source confirmed, and the Miami Heat’s 2024 second-round pick, according to a report by The Inquirer’s Keith Pompey. The Sixers took Tennessee point guard Jordan Bone on behalf of Detroit. They’d acquired No. 57 earlier in the evening in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks.
Per Pompey, the cash considerations are $2 million.
There were a number of notable prospects still on the board late in the second round, including Arizona State’s Luguentz Dort and Zylan Cheatham, Gonzaga’s Zach Norvell Jr. and St. John’s point guard Shamorie Ponds.
Like the trade with the Hawks, the Sixers’ final deal will open up another small sliver of cap space.
