The trade that the 76ers will regret not doing this season

Bleacher Report recently released a list of trades that every team should regret not doing before the trade deadline, which had the 76ers hypothetically acquiring veteran center Andre Drummond from the Chicago Bulls for young forward KJ Martin and three future second-round picks.

Drummond, whom the Bulls notably pulled out of the trade market just moments before the deadline and when the 76ers believed they had him clinched, has turned in a very productive season for Chicago despite playing the second-least minutes per game in his career.

In just 17.3 minutes of court time per contest, Drummond has tallied 8.4 points and 8.9 rebounds per game — an eye-popping statline conisdering his meager playing time behind Nikola Vucevic. He’s been a critical rotation piece for Billy Donovan this season, and the 76ers will definitely regret not having him with Embiid sidelined.
