76ers trade for Buddy Hield in this four-player swap with the Pacers
In this trade proposal, the Philadelphia 76ers acquire Buddy Hield and a 2025 second-round pick from the Indiana Pacers for PJ Tucker, Furkan Korkmaz, Danuel House Jr., Philly’s own second-rounders in 2027 and 2029, and another second-round selection via Portland.
Hield is entering the final year of his contract and will be owed approximately $19.2 million this season. Having drained the second-most three-point shots in the previous campaign, the veteran will be a hot commodity in the trade market, with the 76ers presumably having strong competition that will bid for his services.
Tucker, who started at power forward for the 76ers last season, still has two year left on his contract with an annual value of $11 million, while Korkmaz and House Jr. will also be coming off the books next year.
To better examine how this deal could benefit Philadelphia, let’s dig a little deeper into the nuances of this trade proposal.
