The Sacramento Kings and the Philadelphia 76ers have agreed to a deal. Jason Thompson, Nik Stauskas, and Carl Landry have been traded to the 76ers.

In addition, there is the 76ers option to have a 2016 first-round draft pick swap. The 76ers also have the option in 2017 should the Kings not convey the 2016 pick to the Cleveland Cavaliers in an earlier trade. A future first-round draft pick was also involved.

The future first-round draft pick is expected at least two years after the Kings convey a first-round draft pick to the Cavaliers. It is protected in the Top 10 in 2018 and unprotected in 2019.
