When I was checking to see if the combine measurements were posted yet, I stumbled across a cool feature at DraftExpress. They have a list of which plays are scheduled to workout for which teams, and when. After the jump, we'll check out the guys already on the Sixers' docket.
Two shooting guards are both scheduled to come in for the Sixers on June 14th. I assume for a competitive workout.
- Marcus Thornton (LSU) - Listed at 6'4", 198lbs. Good size for a two (at least good gerth). He shot 38.5% from three in his senior season. DraftExpress speaks glowingly of his versatility and sees him as a guy who could come in and play right away. They have him going #26 in their mock draft. Chad Ford doesn't have him going in the first round.
- Jermaine Taylor (Central Florida) - Listed at 6'4", 210 pounds (again, good gerth). He shot 37.5% from three in his senior season. Chad Ford has him at #40 on his top 100 list. DraftExpress has him going early in the second round in their mock draft.
I hope they get a chance to bring all the points in for a closer look. Holding the #17 pick, they may have a problem with getting guys like Curry to come in for a look. Everyone's convinced they're going to be picked in the lottery.
So these are the two names we have to work with, have at it in the comments. I know I've seen Thornton's name bounced around in the past. What do you guys think?
