From PHLY. Article goes on to mention how brutal the Sixers guard defense will be with both Hield and Maxey. Same as it ever was I guess.
The pick part of the deal was the toughest part for these teams to sort through, which is why sources who spoke to PHLY on Wednesday expressed skepticism about a Hield deal despite extensive talks between the two teams. Indiana had been hoping to squeeze a first-round pick out of the Sixers, and Philly had balked at the idea as late as Wednesday evening.
They landed in what feels like fair territory for the 31-year-old guard/forward. The Sixers now possess Hield’s Bird Rights ahead of his unrestricted free agency this summer, should they choose to retain him, but the pick outlay is small enough that they won’t feel forced to keep him at a bad number or more years than they’re comfortable with. Fair price for a rental, with options on the back end.
