As you can see, the Philadelphia 76ers have plenty of picks for the future, particularly in next year's draft. If the ball bounces their way, they can have up to four first round round picks. Now it's too early to determine if next year's draft is going to be strong, however, this is great for a rebuilding team that has a cornerstone in Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel.

The 76ers are just a few pieces from becoming a team worthy of discussion and if they can get a favorable draft next season, they will be a threat in the future. These next few drafts can only make the 76ers better and they can build up from the draft, like the Oklahoma City Thunder and the San Antonio Spurs have done in the past. This team is only getting interesting as the year progresses, and after next year's draft, we will see this team becoming a playoff team.
