The 76ers are open to trading the No. 10 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, according to a report from ESPN.
Philadelphia would trade the pick to a team interested in drafting Kentucky point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, the report says.
Among the teams still active in trying to trade higher into lottery: Dallas, Chicago, Cleveland and the Clippers, league sources tell ESPN. Philadelphia’s No. 10 pick is in play, a target for teams pursing Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Otherwise, he could go No. 11 to Charlotte.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 21, 2018
The 76ers had also previously been attempting to acquire a top-five pick, according to multiple reports. They sent a second-round pick, No. 39 overall, to the Lakers earlier Wednesday.
The Raptors were reportedly hoping to trade up and select Gilgeous-Alexander. Toronto does not currently have a draft pick.
Gilgeous-Alexander, a native of Hamilton, Ontario, had a breakout freshman season for Kentucky in 2017-18. He averaged 14.4 points and 5.1 assists per game on a Wildcats team that registered a 26-11 record.
The 76ers finished last season with a 52-30 record and made the playoffs for the first time since 2011-12.
