The 76ers were prepared to make major changes to their roster to get a coveted point guard at Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. The team offered packages that included shooting guard Nik Stauskas, point guard Ish Smith, a player with an expiring guaranteed contract and a 2016 first-round pick to the Atlanta Hawks for point guard Dennis Schroder, according to multiple league sources. Former Sixer JaKarr Sampson was said to be player with the expiring contract in the deal.
Storyline: Dennis Schroeder to Sixers?
The 76ers needed to create a roster spot to acquire Joel Anthony from Detroit and eventually waived JaKarr Sampson. Sampson, a favorite among the 76ers’ management and coaching staffs, was waived when an open roster spot was needed. Sampson eventually cleared waivers and signed a new contract with the Denver Nuggets. The Vertical talked to numerous agents and teams, and they all felt that this issue is something the league and the Players Association will need to look into going forward. There is certainly a gray area on how a player who is waived to create a roster spot is treated if a trade is voided.
