Glenn Robinson and Alec Burks traded by Warriors to 76ers for draft picks
The Golden State Warriors held Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks out of their game against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday in anticipation of a possible trade. That deal went through much later in the evening.
Robinson III and Burks are being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers for three second-round draft picks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Warriors are getting the following picks:
– 2020 second-round via Dallas
– 2021 second-round pick via Denver
– 2022 second-round pick via Toronto
A former second-round pick, Robinson is averaging 12.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per game this season on 48.1 percent shooting. The 26-year-old played 10 games for Philly back in the 2014-2015 season.
Burks, 28, is averaging a career-high 16.1 points per game this season.
Philly is tied with Indiana for the fifth-best record in the East at 31-20. They’re looking to keep up with the teams ahead of them, like Miami, Boston, Toronto and Milwaukee.
