76ers' Joel Anthony: Traded to Philadelphia

Anthony was traded to the 76ers on Thursday as part of a three-team trade, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports. The Rockets will acquire the rights to forward Chukwudiebere Maduabum, while the Nuggets will receive a 2017 second-round pick.

It's the second time on the day that Anthony has been moved, after he was sent to the Rockets earlier Thursday in a trade that sent Donatas Motiejunas and Marcus Thornton to the Pistons. Anthony isn't expected to make any tangible on-court contributions for the 76ers, as the team likely just agreed to bring him in for salary-cap related reasons. It's possible the Sixers could waive him before the season ends, as he isn't expected to factor into their rotation.
