POLL: Should Sixers Trade Picks No. 3 + 10 for No. 1 in 2014 NBA Draft?

Andy Lyons

What is Wiggins worth to you?

Word on the street is that the 76ers want Canadian sensation Andrew Wiggins really, really, really badly.

This doesn't come as a surprise given the type of players the franchise has targeted under Sam Hinkie. Draftees Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams are long, explosive athletes that could be the cornerstones of an A+ defense, and a number of the players they brought in last year were upside-y guys with raw talent -- hey Tony (Wroten)!!

However, the Cavaliers are not just going to give the Draft's top pick away for peanuts, so discussions are at something of a stalemate for the time being. Cleveland reportedly wants the Sixers to give up No. 3, 10 and 32 in exchange for the top selection and the mental comfort that comes with it. For a front office that specializes in asset stockpiling, that would appear to be a bit of a non-starter.

The question remains: is it worth it? The No. 1 goal in a rebuild is to find your franchise-changing player, and if Hinkie believes Wiggins is the player in this draft, you use the assets at your disposal to go get him and fill in the blanks later. On the other hand, this whole thing is a total crapshoot. Holding onto multiple dice rolls is certainly defensible, and may end up being the better odds play when all is said and done.

Vote and comment below: should the Sixers trade No. 3 + 10 in exchange for their top target?
