Sixers Trade: Spencer Hawes and Turner

The Sixers have traded center Spencer Hawes to Cleveland in exchange for two 2nd round draft picks, forward Earl Clark and center Henry Sims.

The Sixers were hoping to get a first rounder but have settled for what has to be the best offer from any team for Hawes. These two picks are assets and could be used to make other moves as well as acquire talent in this years deep draft if they choose to keep both picks.

They sent Turner and Lavoy Allen to Indiana in exchange for forward Danny Granger and a future second round pick. This was presumably the best offer they got. While some fans may be displeased with the move, let’s remember that Turner wasn’t going to be back next year anyway so we got what we could before he walked.

Also the Sixers acquired guard Eric Maynor and two future second round picks from Washington.

The Sixers will now have an abundance of cash headed into this off-season to go along with two first rounders, one figured to be a top five pick and the other a lottery, and five second round picks. That’s a lot. We could still see more moves made leading up to and on draft night. If you are a Sixers fan you should be happy with the way things are planned to work out, hopefully they work out as planned.
