How The Dalembert Trade Affects The 76ers' Draft Outlook

Chad Ford, who first broke the news that the 76ers traded Samuel Dalembert to the Kings, touches on what the deal means for the Sixers with regard to the draft, in which they hold the second overall pick:

But the real ramifications may come during the draft. The Sixers have been deciding between Evan Turner and Derrick Favors with the No. 2 pick. While Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski is a Turner fan, new coach Doug Collins is high on Favors. With Dalembert gone and [Andres] Nocioni in, it could push them in the direction of Favors.

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated disagrees:

While drafting Favors/[DeMarcus] Cousins will be talked about more in Philly, don't assume this means Turner is out. He's still the favorite.
