Sixers

Draft:

3rd overall pick: Joel Embiid | CKansasHeight: 7-0 Weight: 250; A swing for the fences that means they´ve either hit a home run or set themselves back. Bold pick.

10th overall pick: Elfrid Payton | PGLouisiana-LafayetteHeight: 6-3 Weight: 180; TRADED TO ORLANDO MAGIC — Can distribute and defend. It maximizes Victor Oladpio and the rest of their team. The Lob Kingdom?

TRADE: Philadelphia trades the No. 10 overall pick (Elfrid Payton, PG, Louisiana-Lafayette) to Orlando for the rights to No. 12 overall pick Dario Saric, SF, Croatia, a 2017 first-round pick and a future second-round pick.

32nd overall pick: K.J. McDaniels | SFClemsonHeight: 6-6   Weight: 200; They finally snagged a superb wing which they missed on earlier

39th overall pick: Jerami Grant | PFSyracuseHeight: 6-8   Weight: 210; Super athletic wings: Philly has all of them.

47th overall pick: Russ Smith | PGLouisvilleHeight: 6-0   Weight: 165; TRADED TO NEW ORLEANS PELICANS — Tough attitude and can manage an offense.

TRADE: Philadelphia trades No. 47 overall pick Russ Smith, PG, Louisville, to New Orleans for PG Pierre Jackson.

52nd overall pick: Vasilije Micic | PGSerbiaHeight: 6-4   Weight: 185; Maybe the best pure pick and role guard in the draft.

History:

The Philadelphia 76ers (commonly known as the Sixers) are an NBA franchise based in PhiladelphiaPennsylvania. They play in the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the NBA. Founded in 1946 and originally known as the Syracuse Nationals, they are one of the oldest franchises in the NBA, and one of only eight (out of 23) to survive the league’s first decade.

The 76ers have had a rich history, with many of the greatest players in NBA history having played for the organization, including Wilt Chamberlain,Julius ErvingMoses MaloneCharles Barkley, and Allen Iverson. They have won three NBA championships, with their first coming as the Syracuse Nationals in 1955. The second title came in the 1966–67 season, a team which was led by Chamberlain. The third title came in the1982–83 season, won by a team led by Erving and Malone. They have only been back to the Finals once since then, during the 2001 campaign, led by Iverson, only to lose to the Los Angeles Lakers, 4–1. They won game 1 in overtime, but lost the next 4. The Sixers set a franchise record and tied an NBA record for futility during the 2013–14 season, losing 26 consecutive games. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philadelphia_76ers)
