The Philadelphia 76ers have a nice, young core to build around that can be a legit contender in the next few years, thanks to the emergence of Joel Embiid and Dario Saric this past season. There's also the potential in last year's No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons.

The Sixers currently hold the No. 3 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, but president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo revealed that the team is open to trading it.

"I think that should we move or if there's a transaction that comes out that gives us a chance to perhaps increase what impact No. 3 can have in terms of its return, I think we will look at it," Colangelo said. "There's some discussions that have been fairly interesting."

Markelle Fultz and Lonzo Ball are likely the top two picks off the board, leaving the Sixers with the likes of Josh Jackson, Jayson Tatum, Jonathan Isaac, Malik Monk, Dennis Smith Jr., and De'Aaron Fox to choose from.

I think the Sixers are better off picking one of those players to help with their young core, but I wouldn't blame them if they are able to find a nice player for their pick. They could also make a package deal involving Jahlil Okafor if he's not a part of their future plans.
