Theo Maledon Rumors
Marc Stein: Official at last: Philadelphia has this morning traded Al Horford, a 2025 first-round pick and the draft rights to Theo Maledon and Vasilije Micic to Oklahoma City for Danny Green, Terrance Ferguson and Vincent Poirier … The Sixers also created an $8.1 million trade exception
Philadelphia 76ers President of Basketball Operations Daryl Morey announced today that the team has acquired Danny Green, Terrance Ferguson and Vincent Poirier (pour-ee-ay) from the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Al Horford, a 2025 protected first-round pick and the draft rights to Théo Maledon (No. 34 selection in 2020 NBA Draft) and Vasilije Micić (No. 52 selection in 2014 NBA Draft). The 2025 first-round pick is protected for pick Nos. 1-6, and if the pick does not convey in 2025, it will be protected for pick Nos. 1-4 in both 2026 and 2027. If not conveyed in the first round of the 2025, 2026 or 2027 drafts, the pick will be a 2027 second-round selection.
According to a Bucks official, if the team had kept its first-round pick (No. 24 overall) instead of sending it to New Orleans in the Holiday trade, they would have given serious consideration to combo guard Cassius Stanley of Duke and point guard Theo Maledon of France. The Bucks attended workouts for both of them.
