Philadelphia has traded James Ennis to Magic for a second-round pick, league source tells ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) February 6, 2020
No details on the pick coming back yet.
The Sixers have to make roster moves to accomodate incoming players Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks, who they traded for in the very early hours of Thursday morning. It seems Ennis is at least one of the roster casualties.
UPDATE: The pick coming back to the Sixers is the Los Angeles Lakers’ 2020 2nd round pick, per Josh Robbins of The Athletic.
The second-round pick the Magic will send to Philly will be the Lakers' 2020 second-round pick, which was owed to Orlando. Keep in mind the Magic have 15 players on their conventional (non two-way) roster. So the team would have to waive someone to make space for Ennis. https://t.co/0vsEJUFejW— Josh Robbins (@JoshuaBRobbins) February 6, 2020
This pick is likely to be one of the last 5-10 picks of this summer’s NBA Draft, which is great because it will produce a very sane and balanced discussion about the value of a 2nd round pick after the Sixers inevitably sell the pick on draft night.
