Sixers Draft: Report, will do ‘whatever it takes’ to get Andrew Wiggins

According to Anthony Gargano of 94WIP, the Sixers are prepared to do “whatever it takes” to get Wiggins on draft night.

“The Sixers are in love with [Andrew] Wiggins and they will do whatever they need to do to land Andrew Wiggins,” Gargano reported on Wednesday. “From what I hear, it’s 90-percent they get Wiggins. They’ll do whatever it takes.”

The Sixers, of course, possess the third overall pick in the draft. While Wiggins projects to be a top-three draft pick in the NBA draft on June 26th, along with Jabari Parker and Joel Embiid, the order is unknown. The Sixers also own the 10th overall pick and they are willing to move up from that slot, according to Gargano’s source.

“I hear that they want to move up from [number] 10 as well,” Gargano said. “So, they want to assure themselves of Wiggins and also, move up from 10.”

The starting point in a Cleveland trade is probably the No. 3 and possibly the No. 10 (but sixers might not be willing to deal that pick). The Sixers might have to throw in some of those second-rounders to make it happen. Or even Thad Young?
