NBA Draft: Sixers Never Tried To Trade For Andrew Wiggins

Well, the rumors were circulating all damn day. From all the insane reports that were flying out, it appears the Sixers were offering the full house for the No. 1 overall pick to obtain Andrew Wiggins. Some reports said the Sixers were offering Nos. 3, 10, 32, and Thaddeus Young to move up two slots in the NBA Draft. Most people didn’t like it, some people said that if that was what it would take to pick Wiggins, then so be it. However, most of us thought that the 76ers were making some sort of run at Andrew Wiggins. Low and behold the Cleveland Cavaliers are the ultimate smokescreen franchise. The Cavs leaked out so much bullshit and Woj tweeted this out at the end of the NBA Draft:

Well, that’s not surprising. Hinkie doesn’t seem like the type of man to give up the house for one player. He stuck with his guns at No. 3 and selected the best available player. Andrew Wiggins will start in Cleveland and leave just like LeBron did and just like Kyrie will. It’s still not fair that the freaking Cavaliers selected Wiggins and won the NBA Draft Lottery with a 1.7 percent chance, but whatever. The 76ers may not have had Wiggins, but they may have had one of the best drafts out of every team in the 2014 NBA Draft.
