USA TODAY Sports

The Sixers have met with big men Mason Plumlee (Duke) and Kelly Olynyk (Gonzaga), according to Comcast SportsNet.

As first reported by Michael Barkann of Comcast SportsNet, The 76es have met with two big men prospects in this upcoming draft in Mason Plumlee of Duke and Kelly Olynyk of Gonzaga.

Plumlee, the senior out of Duke, finally put it together this year, averaging 17.1 points, 9.9 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 34.7 minutes per game for the Blue Devils. He measured in at 7'0.5" at the Chicago Draft Combine, with a 9' standing reach and a 36" max vertical. He will be 23 years old at the time of the draft.

Olynyk averaged 18.8 points and 7.3 rebounds in only 26.5 minutes per game, ranking as one of the prolific scorers in the country on a per-minute basis. He measured 7' in shoes at the combine, with a standing reach of 9' and a 29.5" max vertifical. While Olynyk is one of the most versatile offensive players in the draft, he will struggle to adequately defend and rebound his position. Despite only being a junior, Olynyk is 22 years old as he redshirted a year.

The 76ers have also reportedly worked out C.J. McCollum (Lehigh), Peyton Siva (Louisville), as well as Steven Adams (Pitt), Colton Iverson (Colorado State), Alex Oriakhi (Connecticut), Mouhammadou Jaiteh (France) and Jamelle Hagins (Delaware). Of those, Plumlee, Olynyk, McCollum, and Adams are projected to be first round picks, while the rest are projected as either second round picks or potential undrafted free agents.
