Harry Giles

Injuries have slowed down the emergence of Harry Giles. Once considering a top high school recruit, now he sits on the Sacramento Kings bench with no certain future beyond this season. Despite this, he’s still a player that the Philadelphia 76ers should be interested in.

He has good size at 6-foot-11 and has shown signs that he can play. This season, he’s averaged 5.0 points and 2.8 rebounds, while making 52.0 percent of his field goals in 11.3 minutes per game.

It’s not that he isn’t good, but the Kings just have too many better options at center. Marvin Bagley and former Sixers big Richaun Holmes look like the centers of the future. Alex Len is a replacement level center that they just acquired. Still there’s no room for Giles to get playing time in Sacramento.

With that in mind, below is a hypothetical trade that helps bring him to Philly.

It’s hard seeing the Kings doing this trade without adding a point guard and as much as I personally like Trey Burke on the 76ers, his skills are something that the Kings don’t have at point guard.

O’Quinn give the Kings another quality center on the roster. He’s an upgrade over Len right now and getting O’Quinn can also allow Bagley to play power forward if Kings head coach Luke Walton wants to go that direction. On a side note, this trade would also open up a roster spot for Pelle to sign a regular contract as well.
