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.
The Sixers acquired Anthony, a former Detroit Pistons center, in Thursday’s three-team trade with the Pistons and Houston Rockets. Anthony is expected to be released. The Sixers hope to be able to resign Sampson, assuming he clears waivers by 5 p.m. Sunday. “I don’t have anything negative to say about Philly,” Sampson said Friday. “I feel like a lot of people in my situation might have something negative to say about Philly, like a ‘why-me’ type of thing. But I don’t have anything negative to say about the organization. I love those guys.”
Storyline: JaKarr Sampson Free Agency
The Sixers wanted him to remain with the team in New Orleans and fly with them on Saturday to Dallas for Sunday’s game against the Mavericks. Sampson, however, opted to fly back to Philadelphia. The 6-foot-9, 215-pounder left because he wouldn’t be allowed to accompany the team to games because of NBA rules. He basically would have spent most of his time at the team hotels. Sampson also has been receiving interest from teams that are considering him on a waiver pickup. As a result, he wanted to be in Philadelphia just in case something happened.
