The Philadelphia 76ers finally seem willing to make moves that will benefit the franchise moving forward.
On Friday, Marc Stein and Chad Ford of ESPN reported the team is exploring the possibility of trading big men Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel prior to the 2016 NBA Draft.
According to the report, it is very likely that new general manager Bryan Colangelo will move either Okafor or Noel before the team is on the clock.
Last season, Noel averaged 11.1 points, 8.1 rebounds, 1.8 steals, and 1.5 blocks per game. Okafor, meanwhile, averaged 17.5 points and seven rebounds a game. Both players should generate interest on the trade market.
Earlier this month, the 76ers won the first overall pick in the Draft Lottery.
With either Ben Simmons or Brandon Ingram likely coming to the City of Brotherly Love, trading Okafor or Noel will allow the team to add even more pieces to improve the product on the court.
