76ers add Alec Burks, Glenn Robinson III in trade with Warriors

From NBA.com Staff

The Golden State Warriors are sending guard Alec Burks and forward Glenn Robinson III to the Philadelphia 76ers in a trade first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN and Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The Warriors will receive three second-round picks (a 2020 second-round pick via Dallas, a 2021 second-round pick via Denver, and a 2022 second-round pick via Toronto) from the Sixers in the deal.

Both Burks and Robinson III have capitalized on increased opportunities with the Warriors this season to post career-high stats — 16.1 points and 3.1 assists for Burks, 12.9 points and 4.7 rebounds for Robinson III.

The two veterans are above-average shooters who should help bolster the Sixers’ bench as they fight for playoff positioning. Philadelphia currently sits in the No. 6 seed in the East standings after a rough stretch of play in January.
