76ers upgrade their backcourt by trading for this all-around scorer in proposed deal
In this trade proposed by Bleacher Report, the Philadelphia 76ers acquire veteran wing Bogdan Bogdanovic from the Atlanta Hawks for veteran forward Robert Covington, wing Furkan Korkmaz, guard Jaden Springer, a 2026 first-rounder (the least favorable between OKC, HOU, and LAC), and a 2024 second-round pick via the Knicks.
Atlanta has disappointed this season at large, and as the reports have indicated in the last few weeks, their front office has become a lot more amenable to a substantial retool. With Bogdanovic pegged as a hot commofity among contenders this season, they would be wise to try and liquidate him for assets they can use in the long run.
Meanwhile, the 76ers are not expected to be in the market for a star acquisition, but there is definitely room for a upgrade or two on the margins. Robert Covington, Furkan Korkmaz, and Jaden Springer’s expiring deals line up as good salary matchers in anticipation of a reset by the Hawks, while draft compensation is surely in the list of demands from any Bogdanovic suitor.
How does this deal grade out for the 76ers?
