New York Knicks president Phil Jackson spoke with New York reporters about the upcoming draft. Jackson mentioned there were teams with assets in the draft and the Knicks would be looking to buy some picks from teams. Two teams Jackson specifically mentioned via Philly.com were the Sixers, who have seven picks in the draft, and the Milwaukee Bucks, who have four picks in the draft.
Jackson explained the Sixers cannot put all seven of their picks on the roster due to NBA roster limitations. Five of the Sixers' seven picks fall in the second round and many believe general manager Sam Hinkie stockpiled second round picks at the trade deadline to be able to move around the draft as needed.
The Sixers own the third and 10th overall picks in addition to the 32nd, 39th, 47th, 52nd and 54th overall picks. It will certainly be a situation to monitor closely as Hinkie has not been one to shy away from pulling the trigger on a trade.
