Sixers land No. 10 pick in draft lottery, now have 6 total selections

The Sixers will have the opportunity to add another lottery pick to their young core.

The Sixers landed the No. 10 pick in Tuesday night's NBA draft lottery. The selection conveyed to the Sixers via the Los Angeles Lakers and dates back to the Michael Carter-Williams trade in 2015. The selection was also in play for the Boston Celtics as part of the Markelle Fultz deal.

“Probability suggested this is where we would end up tonight, both keeping the pick and selecting at No. 10,” Sixers president Bryan Colangelo said in a statement. “Given the depth of the draft pool, we expect to be in a position to add another talented young piece to our developing core.”

The Sixers now have six total picks in the 2018 NBA draft — Nos. 10 and 26 in the first round and Nos. 38, 39, 56 and 60 in the second round (see story).

The NBA draft is set for June 21.

Report: Sixers trade No. 39 pick to Lakers for 2019 2nd-rounder, cash

The Sixers didn’t wait until draft night to start their wheeling and dealing.

According to a report Wednesday by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Sixers have traded the No. 39 pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for a 2019 second-round pick (via the Chicago Bulls) and cash.

With the Sixers previously holding six total selections in Thursday’s 2018 NBA draft and 11 players already under contract for next season, the team was never going to be able to use all of its picks.

The Sixers now enter the draft with picks Nos. 10 and 26 in the first round and Nos. 38, 56 and 60 in the second round.
