The Sixers are looking to add an interior presence to provide defensive support or a perimeter player who can generate offense.
“Bigs that can protect the rim and guys who can put the ball in the basket,” Sixers director of player personnel Courtney Witte said. “We know what our weaknesses are. We’d like to improve our shooting and we’d also like to get a big that can help us down the road also.”
Philadelphia’s first pick will be 15th. They also have the 45th and 54th picks.
“Every day you have to be more educated with the players,” Witte said. “We have background things going on—talking to the coaches. That’s the kind of process. The tape work, it’s still ongoing, but we’ve watched a lot of film on these players so now it’s more background talking with their agents, their coaches and the people involved in their lives and going over that kind of information.”
