For the second time on Thursday night, the Philadelphia 76ers traded away the rights to a player that they drafted. According to Shams Charamia of Yahoo! Sports, the Sixers are trading Khyri Thomas, the 38th overall pick, to the Detroit Pistons.
Philadelphia’s No. 38 overall pick Khyri Thomas will be traded to Detroit, league sources say.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 22, 2018
It appears that the Sixers will get two more future second round picks from the Pistons. That means that Brett Brown and Philadelphia flipped the 38th and 39th picks in the 2018 NBA Draft into three future second round picks and some cash. It seems he has learned a thing or two from that Sam Hinkie guy.
Pretty slick work there by the Pistons, getting a couple of solid guard prospects midway through the second round in Khryi Thomas (trade with Philly for two future seconds) and Bruce Brown (taken 42nd overall by Detroit).— David Aldridge (@daldridgetnt) June 22, 2018
