The Philadelphia 76er’s just revealed their 2015-2016 campaign slogan, “This Starts Now” earlier in the week, but today, the Sixer’s made a shocking announcement that last year’s rookie of the year Michael Carter-Williams was traded to the Milwaukee Bucks as part of a 3 way team deal that lands the Sixer’s another draft pick for the 2015-2016 season, according to Philly.com.
The youngest team in the league was showing signs of promise this year, but that doesn’t seem to sit well with the new ownership, who continue to work to rebuild the franchise into a championship contender. You like the direction the 76er’s seem to be taking? Check out his reaction below.
I can’t lie I’m shocked. I love this city thank you for everything. I can honestly say I gave it my all. I wish Philly nothing but the best
