NBA Draft 2014: Wrapping Up The 76ers 2nd Round Picks

Phew, this is a lot to keep track of to be honest. It was a wild NBA Draft. Maybe not what we all expected, but it was crazy. The craziest part? Thaddeus Young is still a member of the Philadelphia 76ers and Hinkie kept all of the FIVE second round selections and even acquired more. Let’s wrap up this second-round, shall we?

With the No. 32 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers select:

K.J. McDaniels, forward from Clemson University.

With the No. 39 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers select:

Jerami Grant, foward from Syracuse University.

With the No. 47 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers select:

Russ Smith, point guard from Louisville University.

TRADE. The Sixers traded Russ Smith to the New Orleans Pelicans for the rights to Pierre Jackson, who the 76ers originally traded to New Orleans last season.

So, the 76ers flipped Pierre Jackson for Russ Smith, which is a win in my book.

With the No. 52 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers select:

Vasilije Micic, point guard from Serbia. This is a draft-and-stash pick, won’t come over for a while I’m projecting. Try pronouncing his name, I can’t even spell it.

With the No. 54 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers select:

Nemanja Dangubic, forward from Serbia. Try saying that, or spelling it.

TRADE. WOJ ALERT.

The 76ers traded Dangubic to the Spurs — of course — for the No. 58 and 60 picks in the 2014 NBA Draft.

With the No. 58 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers select:

Jordan McRae, guard from Tennessee. Finally, someone that can shoot the damn ball.

With the No. 60 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers select:

Corey Jefferson, forward from Baylor.

Now, I’m not sure if the Sixers actually kept pick No. 60.

Wojnarowski tweeted that after he tweeted that the Sixers had both No. 58 and 60. I’m pretty sure that Jefferson is headed to Brooklyn, but whatever. The Sixers wound up getting five players in the second-round, which is something none of us expected. I’m assuming Hinkie will assemble a roster similar to last seasons, except with Nerlens Noel and MCW at the forefront. He’s gonna see if any of these second-round guys can ball while he waits for Saric and Embiid to play.

How do you feel about the 76ers second-round?
