Report: Sixers to Trade Thad Young To Wolves For 1st-Round Pick

In the latest episode of ‘what is Sam Hinkie doing,’ the Philadelphia 76ers will acquire another first-round pick, guard Alexey Shved and forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute for Thaddeus Young.

According to Dan Barreiro of KFAN 100.3 and Jon Krawczynski of the Associated Press, it looks like the Sixers would get the Miami Heat‘s first round pick in 2015, guard Alexey Shved and forward Luc Richard Mbah a Moute. That Heat pick was originally sent to Cleveland in the LeBron James sign-and-trade in 2010, and it would have been going to Minnesota as part of this Love deal if this didn’t turn into a three-team transaction.

Hinkie and the Sixers get another first-round pick as an asset, and two veterans that he’ll likely part ways with.  The youngest team in the NBA is just barely legal at this point.
