Hinkie's Hijinks: Four Potential Thad Trades on Draft Day

Trade one:

Sixers trade: Thad Young and Second

Celtics: Gerald Wallace and the nets picks at 17.

Would you do it? Who would we take at 17? I'm thinking, Nik Stauskas, and athletic guy who can shoot. Or, we go for somebody like Zack Lavine, who is super athletic and can shoot, but is a few years away from knowing what we have. Thoughts? let's face it. If we don't get rid of Thad during the draft, and eat a contract. We're gonna end up getting two 2nd rounders for him. His contract is okay, but is not good enough that not many teams want to take it on, and give up something for. So, we have to take a little to get a little.


Trade two:

Sixers Trade: Thad Young and Second

Bobacts Trade: 24th Pick, luck ridnour, gary neal

Why: Because Bobacts are in a win now mentality. Sixers get a 1st rounder!


Trade Three;

Sixers Trade: Thad Young and Second

Bulls: Carlos Boozer and 19th pick

Why: Bulls have two first rounders, they would like to get out off Boozers contract to make some moves to potentially bring in a star to replace Rose. And replacing Younf for Boozer basically gives them the same numbers but with better defense, and a more manageable contract. Sixers get a 1st rounder!


Trade Four

Sixers Trade: Thad Young and Second

Cavs: Dion Waiters, Alonzo Gee, Cj Miles

Why: Cavs have been talking about getting rid of this guy. Philly love taking on talented head cases. Why not get some value in Young. Sixers get a young asset to keep or trade.


My main point is Young is not a part of our future however you look at it. Let's get some value while the getting is good. If it means eating a crappy players contract for two years. Then so be it. I thought that is why we were getting rid of all of our cap space. So, we can do some creative things like this and collect some draft picks and assets. Young is the last piece we have to move to fully get that plan in gear. This seems to be the year where you can potentially get an all star in the late teens if you get lucky. Come on Lady Luck give us two all stars this draft.
