Trying to explain what Sam Hinkie did in the second-round of the 2013 NBA Draft is still a confusing project to this day. It seemed that every pick the 76ers made in the second-round would be traded for a future pick. At No. 38, the 76ers selected Nate Wolters and traded him to the Milwaukee Bucks, while also trading Pierre Jackson and Glen Rice Jr. before the night was over.
The 76ers did wind up keeping their selection at No. 58, which was a forward out of Oregon named Arslan Kazemi. The Oregon product was heralded as an aggressive rebounder, something the 76ers sorely needed. Kazemi would spent the 2013-2014 seasons overseas, but he’s in Philadelphia this season and should give the 76ers a nice presence on the boards.
