The Philadelphia 76ers made their big move when they decided to pull the trigger on a deal to acquire sharpshooter Buddy Hield from the Indiana Pacers. The Sixers have been in need of a shooter and some help on the offensive end since the injury to Joel Embiid and Philadelphia got its man.
Hield is averaging 12.0 points and shooting 38.4% from deep on the season on 6.9 attempts per game. For his career, he takes 7.7 triples per game and knocks them down at a 40.1% clip. He will help spread the floor for Tyrese Maxey and give the Sixers another option with Embiid out of the lineup.
Once Embiid returns, the Sixers will now have another shooter around their superstar big man. He has been great at attacking double teams so Hield will certainly be a big help.
NBA Twitter gave its best reactions to the Sixers pulling off the deal:
