WE DON'T HEAR much from Sam Hinkie. The Sixers general manager goes about his business working the phones, not letting a single word leak. He works very quietly and then, when we least expect it - BOOOOOOM - he drops the bomb on us.
Done it twice so far.
Can't wait for draft night 2014.
Last June, under the cover of darkness on draft night and without the hint of a rumor anywhere, Hinkie sent All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday to the New Orleans Pelicans/Hornets for the sixth pick in the draft plus a first-rounder in this year's draft that could very well be another lottery pick. He then traded all over the place in the second round, netting two additional picks in this year's draft.
