After a trade with the Boston Celtics, the Philadelphia 76ers are set to make the first pick in the NBA Draft for the second year in a row and the fourth time in franchise history. The Sixers previously selected Ben Simmons (2016), Allen Iverson (1996) and Doug Collins (1973) at No. 1. Philadelphia held the top pick in 1986 by virtue of a previous trade with the LA Clippers, but the 76ers traded the pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers, who selected Brad Daugherty.
Only time will tell if the decision to trade for the number 1 will pay dividend for the sixers.
