Reports: Heat pick Arnett Moultrie headed to 76ers for future first-rounder

NBA

Once again, Chad Ford of ESPN.com was the first to report a trade: The Philadelphia 76ers agreed to send a second-round pick this year and a future first-round pick to the Miami Heat for the 27th overall pick, which the Heat used on Mississippi State forward Arnett Moultrie.

Given his size and athleticism, Moultrie was thought to be going before pick No. 20. Philly has a lot of developing wing players and could use a young big to complement them, and apparently the price was right for the Sixers to move up for Moultrie.

UPDATE: The 45th pick was used on LSU center Justin Hamilton, and Ford has details on the future first-rounder that the Heat pick up:
