The Philadelphia 76ers have once again surprised their fans by completing another unexpected trade. This time, they have sent their 2021 first-round pick, Jaden Springer, to their rival team, the Boston Celtics. ESPN‘s Adrian Wojnarowski broke the news.
Earlier, the Sixers had already made headlines by trading Patrick Beverley to another Eastern Conference rival, the Indiana Pacers. In this trade, they acquired Cameron Payne and a second-round pick. Additionally, the Sixers agreed to a trade with the Pacers for sharpshooter Buddy Hield, giving up three second-round picks, Marcus Morris, Sr., and Furkan Korkmaz. They also traded Danuel House, Jr. and a second-round pick to another team.
Jaden Springer, a talented 21-year-old prospect, has shown promise on the defensive end, as demonstrated in standout performances against star players like Luka Doncic and Steph Curry. However, his offensive game has been a work in progress, struggling with consistency in his shooting and decision-making.
Many believed there was still plenty of time for Springer to develop with the Sixers. He even won the G League Finals MVP award last season, indicating his potential for growth. Therefore, trading him for a second-round pick and not making any subsequent trades has left the fanbase perplexed and disappointed.
The Sixers have essentially provided the Celtics with a potential defensive stopper against their rising star, Tyrese Maxey. This move also raises questions about the Sixers’ intentions with the extra second-round pick they obtained. It is safe to say that this trade deadline has been confusing and disheartening for the Sixers and their supporters.
