Daryl Morey Explains Why The 76ers Gave Up On Jaden Springer

Brad Stevens gave his perspective on the Jaden Springer trade. Now it’s Daryl Morey’s turn to do the same. Morey addressed the media after the 2024 NBA Trade Deadline and didn’t mince words when it came to Springer. Morey was lowkey rude about it too.

“We had to look at, what are the odds Jaden Springer — who I think has a great future — helps our playoff rotation in the one, two, three-year horizon,” Morey said. “And what are the odds a second-round pick helps us? And we thought the second-round pick helped us more. And that’s just the reality, it allows us to maybe get a veteran at next year’s deadline, things like that.

“We did it. It sucks. Jaden’s going to be really good, I think. I think his timetable is a little pushed out, though. Our evaluation was that his timetable to help a playoff team is farther than what the second-round pick can do for us.”

It would appear that Morey gave Springer the old Bruno Caboclo line. Two years away from being two years away. Not ready to help a playoff contender. At the end of the day, Morey valued the second round pick more than Springer.

At the end of the day, it’s hard to really argue with Morey. In totality, the 76ers acquired Buddy Hield for one second round pick. That’s after you factor in that they gave up three for Hield but got two back. One for Springer and another for Patrick Beverley. To get Buddy Hield for one second round pick is highway robbery.

Maybe Springer will turn into nothing but his defensive upside is certainly intriguing.
