ESPN's Chad Ford did a report on Australian point guard Dante Exum, who is expected to be a top selection in next month's draft. Ford says the Milwaukee Bucks, who currently hold the second overall pick, are "big fans" of Exum but so are the 76ers, who select third overall.
Exum plays the same position as current Sixers point guard Michael Carter-Williams which has the Sixers thinking, 'Should we draft Exum and move Carter-Williams?' Ford reports the Sixers have bounced around the idea of trading Carter-Williams.
The 22-year-old finished the year leading all rookies in scoring (16.7), assists (6.3), rebounds (6.2) and steals (1.9) en route to winning the Rookie of the Year award. He is just the third player in the modern era to lead rookies in those categories joining Oscar Robertson and Alvan Adams. Carter-Williams is the first 76er to win the award since Allen Iverson in 1996-97.
Carter-Williams is the first player since Mark Jackson in 1988 to win the Rookie of the Year award despite being selected outside the top-10.
It should be noted that the Sixers don't appear to have any untouchables on the roster as it currently sits. General manager Sam Hinkie shocked everyone last year when he traded All Star point guard Jrue Holiday for a tremendous haul of 2013 sixth overall pick Nerlens Noel and the 10th overall pick in this year's draft. Needless to say, if someone comes calling, Hinkie will listen although it is still unlikely Carter-Williams is going anywhere.
