Didn't recognize who we got for the pick. What is the name again?

He's a bench player

Their bench sucked last year - so I hope he is an upgrade

Once again, Morey going with a Rockets' connection. Morey drafted Melton in 2018, then traded him away. He doesn't solve any of the 76ers' length and athleticism issues, he's a 6-3 combo guard. Moving Green makes sense, but for the 23rd pick, I would have hoped he'd find someone 6-6 to 6-8 off someone's bench. Melton is a rotational guard. He won't start over Maxey, that's for damn sure.

So in the end signing that stiff Green to a 2 year deal effectively cost us our 1st round pick just to dump him? Awful. Melton is not an asset.

I actually really like Melton as a fit as the 3rd guard. Fits both with Maxey and Harden.

Also I said it when I wanted them to trade for Jimmy, Sixers need more dogs on this roster.

Melton is a good player, what are you talking about.
