MCW in a great position to succeed long term


When the Sixers traded to Jrue Holiday to the Pelicans for Nerlens Noel, it became evident they would then target a point guard with the eleventh pick in the draft. Burke was taken at 9 and McCollum was taken at 10, leaving Michael Carter Williams for the Sixers to draft at 11. As part of the trade, the Sixers also received the rights to New Orleans' 2014 first round pick. While the Pelicans did acquire a young all star point guard, they were not an all star point guard away from being a playoff team. They still have a gaping hole at SF, injury and attitude concerns at SG and a center who doesn't rebound. It is likely that the draft pick the Sixers acquired will be a lottery pick in the 2014 draft. So long as the Sixers don't make the playoffs, they will retain the right to their own 2014 draft pick as well (the Sixers first round is pledged to Miami but is protected for picks 1-14). So assuming neither the Pelicans not the Sixers make the playoffs, the Sixers will have two lottery picks in what is already being compared to the 2003 draft in terms of talent and depth. If the Sixers can add two more high ceiling prospects in 2014 to pair with Noel & MCW, they have a bright future ahead of them.
