This is the great success of 76ers and when the new professional president Daryl Morey. Besides, Oklahoma City Thunder was richer with a huge number of picks. Thus, Al Horford’s time at Philadelphia 76ers lasted only one season.

According to reputable journalist Adrian Wojnarowski, the Sixers traded Al Horford with a first-round pick in 2025 and the 34th pick at NBA Draft 2020 to Oklahoma City Thunder. In return, they have veteran pitcher and NBA champion Danny Green alongside energetic young striker Terrance Ferguson.

Al Horford and the contract of more than 100 million dollars were successfully discarded by the Philadelphia 76ers. At least Al Horford has been in Philadelphia for 76ers for a season. To Danny Green, you’ve been just a part of Oklahoma City Thunder for a few days.

Green was traded from the Lakers to Thunder earlier this week after the exchange brought Dennis Schroder to Los Angeles. With the Philadelphia 76ers deal, Oklahoma City Thunder enriched their “pick bank” with two more options at the NBA Draft, an invaluable asset for a team looking to rebuild a formation like OKC.

It is not yet clear whether Al Horford will stay in Thunder or will he continue to be placed on the table by the team.

Green has 3 times to win the championship with 3 different teams are San Antonio Spurs, Toronto Raptors, and Los Angeles Lakers. In all three trophy wins, he played an important role in the team.

Besides, the Philadelphia 76ers were able to push Al Horford and a giant contract (4 years, 109 million dollars) to another team without having to give up too many players or picks. This is considered the first major success Mr. Morey has with his new position at Philly, the perfect start after a rowdy farewell to the Houston Rockets and China-related issues.
