While battling Oklahoma City in the Western Conference lowlands, George Hill found a new base, as it is Philadelphia, credible title contenders this season. Pay for your change of scenery.
It is, therefore, a three-team trade that occurred between the Sixers and the Thunder, but also the Knicks, who came to play the role of facilitators of this operation. George Hill leaves the OKC tank to find himself in the Sixers’ great engine, where his NBA Finals experience with the Cavs will inevitably bring something up, starting with entering free throws at the money time, for example. UPS. Well at least it allowed Gérard to shine brilliantly for a short time and offer us his best Gérarderie of the decade.
- Sixers bounce back: George Hill and Iggy Brazdeikis
- Knicks bounce back: Terrance Ferguson and Vincent Poirier
- Thunder bounce back: Austin Rivers, Tony Bradley and 2 second rounds of the Draft
Ignas Brazdeikis, who until then played more with the Knicks’ G League team and whose main novelty was that he had grown a beard, will therefore accompany George Hill in Philadelphia, New York recovers the whirlwind of Terrance Ferguson, perfect to add some highlights a franchise that already has a lot this season, in addition to Vincent Poirier, and the Thunder get their son Rivers back, inside Tony Bradley and, oh surprise, two second rounds of the Draft, their 1546 and 1547 in the coming seasons. (34 for the next seven seasons, actual number). Nevertheless, this arrival seems to mark the end of the rumored Kyle Lowry in the Sixers, the one who is more on the move than ever and who should, like Nikola Vucevic with magic, receive an exit voucher after so many years of good and loyal service, probably to the Heat or … the Lakers!
It’s certainly not the exchange of the night, but it’s still a nice addition for every team, no team seems to be fooled and that’s a good thing. Don’t we say that good accounts make good friends?
