Mikal Bridges was not a Sixer for very long.

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Atlanta Hawks Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The 76ers will be acquiring Zhaire Smith and a 2021 first round pick via Miami from the Phoenix Suns according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports. Philadelphia will be sending Mikal Bridges, who was selected 10th on Thursday night, to Phoenix.

Smith averaged 11.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.1 blocks per game in one season at Texas Tech. You can find our full prospect profile on the guard here.

There were certainly mixed reactions throughout Sixers Twitter when the 10th pick and then the trade was made. There are a lot of thoughts flying around right now but everyone is welcome to try to express your own opinion in the comments as always.
