The 76ers president of basketball operations was asked Friday if he had any second thoughts about trading players to three other potential Eastern Conference playoff teams: the Boston Celtics, Milwaukee Bucks, and Indiana Pacers.

 

“I don’t,” Morey said, followed by laughter. “I know maybe others do. I know maybe others do. I do think that comes into play when you’re talking about maybe your top few. I do think it matters then. But when you get a little further down the roster, I don’t think that should be a factor.

 

“I think you’ll miss opportunities that will hurt you more than those things. We’ll see. This is definitely a challenge trade. It’ll be a fun one going forward.”

 

Things are definitely going to be interesting, especially the trades with the third-place Bucks (34-19) and first-place Celtics (40-12).

 

Meanwhile, Philly shipped Jaden Springer to Boston for a 2024 second-rounder. This came after Springer, the 28th pick of the 2021 draft, shut down All-Star point guards Luka Dončić and Steph Curry in consecutive games.
