Sixers Add To Stock Of Future Picks With Three-team Deal
On Friday night, the Sixers completed a trade that added to their growing stock of future draft picks.
In a three-team deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves and Houston Rockets, Philadelphia acquired Houston’s 2015 second-round pick, forward Ronny Turiaf, and the rights to Sergei Lishouk. In return the Sixers sent guard Alexey Shved to the Houston Rockets. Houston also swapped guard Troy Daniels for swingman Corey Brewer in the deal.
Assuming protections on the team’s 2015 picks shake out on draft night as they would today, the team would have six picks in 2015 and 21 through 2020. According to RealGM.com, the breakdown would be as follows:
2015: PHI 1st, MIA 1st, HOU 2nd, GSW 2nd, ORL 2nd, NOP 2nd
2016: PHI 1st, DEN 2nd
2017: PHI 1st, PHI 2nd
2018: PHI 1st, PHI 2nd, better of CLE or BKN 2nd, better of LAC or NYK 2nd
2019: PHI 1st, PHI 2nd, NYK 2nd, better of MIL or SAC 2nd
2020: PHI 1st, PHI 2nd, BKN 2nd
Turiaf recently underwent surgery on his right hip and is expected miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season. Lishouk was originally the 49th-overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft by the Memphis Grizzlies and currently plays for Liga ACB team Valencia.
