Would You Make This Sixers Draft-Day Trade?

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- There is a ton of intrigue surrounding the Philadelphia 76ers heading into the June 23rd NBA Draft.

The Sixers own picks No. 1, 24, and 26. Plus, they have a plethora of big-men on their roster with Jahlil Okafor, Nerlens Noel, and Joel Embiid. Not to mention, Dario Saric is 6'10" and is supposed to join the team from Turkey at some point.

And, if they draft Ben Simmons with the No. 1 overall pick -- the likely candidate -- he's 6'10" himself.

The Sixers are reportedly interested in moving either Okafor or Noel during the draft.

ESPN Insider put together five potential NBA draft day trades they would like to see happen. One of the trades on the list involved the Sixers.

Sixers send: Jahlil Okafor to New Orleans
Pelicans send: No. 6 pick and Alexis Ajinca to Philadelphia

The idea here, is the Sixers could pair a guard at No. 6 -- Buddy Hield, Jamal Murray, or Kris Dunn -- with Simmons.
