The young wing could be in play for the Sixers late in the first round, but Philadelphia might not be on the board with a selection.

Following Philadelphia's blockbuster trade with the Brooklyn Nets this past season, the Sixers sent Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, and multiple draft picks Brooklyn's way in exchange for James Harden and Paul Millsap.

One of those draft selections is the No. 23 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft. Brooklyn could convey the pick if they choose to do so by June 1. However, the Sixers haven't lost out on the pick just yet.
