What better way to start the weekend then to look at some mock drafts and see who our Philadelphia 76ers might be taking?

#15- Arnett Moultrie: The Sixers need big athletes and Moultrie might be a great fit. He's long and athletic, he rebounds and he can stretch the floor with his jumper. Moultrie could be one of the real sleepers in the draft.

#15- Arnett Moultrie: One of the elite rebounders in this draft. Has the size and the body to help Doug Collins up front.

#15- John Henson: Henson should become a defensive presence, especially if he bulks up. Some executives even see defensive star.

#15- Terrence Jones: While almost certainly a top-10 talent, Jones (or one of his power forward counterparts) could pay the price for how deep this draft is at his position, as six power forwards have already come off the board at this point in this particular mock draft. The Sixers have other needs, but could have a very difficult time passing on a player like Jones, who can do a little bit of everything on the floor and looks ready to play from day one.

#15- Jeremy Lamb: The Sixers could go for size, but they need perimeter help. The off-the-rails season that the Huskies had certainly tarnished Lamb’s draft stock, but he is still a smooth, big, talented wing. He should be better than the 33.6 percent 3-point shooter he was this year, though.

#15- Arnett Moultrie: The Sixers are sitting in a great spot with the first non-lottery pick after making a deep run in the playoffs. They are in a position to add a quality player with solid depth in this year's draft. They went big with Nikola Vucevic last year and could look to bolster their frontcourt once again with a player like Arnett Moultrie.

#15- John Henson: Another big body would be the ideal fit for the 76ers since Spencer Hawes is a free agent. Henson is a paper-thin but an extremely long, athletic, solid shot-blocker.

#15- Terrence Jones: Power forward Elton Brand, 33, is on the downside of his career and entering the final year of his contract, while free-agent center Spencer Hawes' future in Philadelphia is uncertain. In other words, it's time to get some help in the frontcourt. While Jones may wind up being a small forward in the NBA, he is a skilled, if inconsistent, big man who can stretch the floor. Jones could go much higher than here, too.
It seems like Moultrie is the popular pick right now. I wouldn't have any problems if we took him, but my favorite pick is Jeremy Lamb – if we were to get him, and Dre isn't traded, do we make Turner the 6th man, or does Lamb come off the bench?
