A trade seems very possible here with the Jazz already stacked with depth at every position except maybe point guard. Now to the Sixers. Giles, a center out of Duke, is projected to go anywhere from 15 to the mids.
The depth and talent in this class both are better than recent years, which might make these selections more valuable. Allen can plug in as a rotational player coming off the bench to provide instant offense.
The smartest, most well-connected reporters in basketball could all put their heads together to come up with a mock draft tonight and it would undoubtedly be wrong.
