In a move that makes sense to nobody but Sixers GM Sam Hinkie, the Philadelphia 76ers have traded for center Hasheem Thabeet of the OKC Thunder.
The Hasheem Thabet era is officially started in Philadelphia…
The fact that the 76ers are waiving Thabeet — who has a non-guaranteed contract this season — makes zero sense. The Sixers are helping out Oklahoma City, maybe so Kevin Durant is aware that the 76ers still exist and this is where Hinkie starts planting seeds to bring him to Philly.
Seeing Hasheem Thabeet in 76ers blue, red, and white this season would have been a joy. He’s heralded as one of the top busts in NBA Draft history and would have filled that void that was left when Kwame Brown was waived last season. Oh well, another day in Sixers land. Hasheem Thabeet forever.
