The NBA docked the Philadelphia 76ers two second-round picks on Monday for holding premature free agency discussions with two players, a violation of league rules.

The Sixers lose a second-round in the 2023 and 2024 NBA drafts.

“The rescindment of two draft picks reflected findings, following an investigation, that the 76ers engaged in free agency discussions involving two players (P.J. Tucker and Danuel House Jr.) prior to the date when such discussions were permitted,” the league said in a release.
