He traded all-star point guard Jrue Holiday and acquired the rights to center Nerlens Noel, the sixth overall pick, in a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans. The Sixers also received the Pelicans' 2014 first-round pick, which is protected from picks one through five, for Holiday and a second-round pick (42d overall) in the draft.
On Friday, the Sixers acquired Royce White and the rights to Turkish star Furkan Aldemir in a trade with the Houston Rockets. The Sixers essentially gave up nothing in return.
They are likely to use White's $1.7 million deal as an expiring contract next season. There is a team option for 2014-15.
The Sixers are still searching for a coach to replace Doug Collins, who resigned in April.
Wyatt sticking around
Khalif Wyatt said it was just a matter of having fun.
One day after he made just 4 of 15 shots, the undrafted guard had a breakout performance for the Sixers on Monday in a 96-75 summer-league loss to the Indiana Pacers.
Wyatt scored 25 points on 11-for-18 shooting. He also finished with three steals, three rebounds, a blocked shot, and five turnovers.
"The coaches emphasized [having fun] in the locker room," the former Temple standout said. "They said, 'Go out there and have fun.' I took that in and went out there and had fun."
The 22-year-old Norristown High graduate said he has decided to remain with the team during the summer league.
He was supposed to play only two games with the Sixers, then travel to Las Vegas on Tuesday to join the Dallas Mavericks' summer-league squad. But Wyatt impressed the Sixers to the point where they want him to remain here for further evaluations.
Arnett Moultrie, a power forward/center, was the team's second-leading scorer Monday with 17 points. Point guard Michael Carter-Williams, the first-round pick, added 13 points on 4-for-20 shooting. He had no turnovers.
