Michael Carter-Williams was the only bright spot on a mind-numbingly bad Philadelphia 76ers side last year and coasted his way to the Rookie of the Year Award.
But in their effort to seemingly be terrible for the rest of time, the Sixers managers are rumored to be actively inviting trade offers for their star point guard.

Carter-Williams has expressed some frustration with how the 76ers are going about their business, saying recently that he wasn’t a fan of the way the organization are set up right now and their complete lack of interest in actually winning games.
To add even more fuel to the flames, Grantland’s Zach Lowe has now come out and said that he believes the team could attempt to trade their point guard this season, adding that the team already tried to see what they could get for him at the Draft a few months ago.
Draft Day Trade
"They tried hard during the draft, but they couldn’t draw the trove they envisioned or guarantee that the player they wanted with an acquired pick would be there, per several league sources," Lowe wrote in his piece.
"Expect Philly to repeat the exercise. It’s not a shot at Carter-Williams, or even a signal that the Sixers are dying to trade him. He may well end up a long-term cog in Philly."
Lowe goes on to say that the Sixers know that a point guard is the easiest position to replace in the league and if the team are offered a high 1st round pick then they will snap it up immediately and let go the reigning Rookie of the Year at the drop of a hat.
