The 76ers fleeced the Sacramento Kings last week in one of the most lopsided trades in recent NBA history. They acquired the shooter they coveted in Nik Stauskas, two veteran post players in Jason Thompson and Carl Landry, a 2018 protected first-round pick and the option to swap 2016 and 2017 first-rounders, all in exchange for recent second-round acquisitions Arturas Gudaitis (47th overall) and Luka Mitrovic (60th).
The 76ers can increase the likelihood that they will have a successful future with one simple move: General manager Sam Hinkie must re-sign Jason Richardson to a one- or two-year deal.
