The Philadelphia 76ers have traded the draft rights to Elfrid Payton to the Orlando Magic for the rights to Dario Saric and a pair of draft picks, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

As part of the deal, the Sixers will get a 2015 second-round pick from the Magic and also will get back the first-round pick – likely in 2017 – they sent to Orlando in the Dwight Howard deal, sources said.

The Sixers were prepared to take Saric with the 10th overall pick before calling the Magic with 30 seconds left on the clock and offering Payton, sources. The Magic then took Saric at No. 12 to complete the deal.
