The Nets will get the Sixers' 2020 first-round pick unprotected with a right to defer until 2023 and a 2027 first-round pick protected 1-to-8, sources tell ESPN. The 2027 pick would roll over to 2028 protected 1-to-8 again. The pick turns into two seconds and $2M in 2029.
Huge blockbuster deal that makes both of these teams much better. Harden is a pain in the arse, but compliments Embiid very well. Playing with an elite offensive weapon in Kevin Durant and another great 2nd offensive guy in Kyrie Irving is an ideal landing spot for Ben Simmons. The Eastern Conference just got much tougher unfortunately.

Kevin Durant on the fit with Ben Simmons, Seth Curry and Andre Drummond going forward: "That’s a good question. I feel like we got versatile players so we have to figure it out and figure out what works for us, but I’m just happy that we got guys who want to be part of this."
