The new president of basketball operations of the 76ers sent a strong signal Thursday that Philadelphia may look to trade a top-five pick if it ends up with two when the lottery order is determined next week, telling NBA.com, “We’ll certainly be open for business.”

The comments from Bryan Colangelo that the 76ers are interested in turning at least one first-round choice, and maybe more, into a package than includes an established player instead of adding potential is the strongest sign yet of the policy shift away from building on youth.
