Today marks the NBA’s trade deadline, meaning the last time eternally-restless #LOLSixers’ GM Sam Hinkie can shuffle the portfolio of his hedge fund, err, NBA team for a few months. So he was quite active. Check it out:

To recap, the #LOLSixers no longer have Michael Carter Williams, a first round pick from 2013 and the 2014 Rookie of the Year; or KJ McDaniels, a second round pick who was averaging 9.2 points per game. The #LOLSixers obtained McGee, whom they will probably waive, as well as Isaiah Canaan, two first round draft picks and a second round draft pick. Nobody ever really understands what Hinkie is doing, other than that he can never get enough draft picks. Either way, the actions clearly blew the minds of Philadelphia basketball fans and at least one #LOLSixers player.
