The debate on who the Sixers will select with the 2nd overall pick in this year's draft will come to a close in a mere 13 days. In the meantime, Tony DiLeo, Ed Stefanski, Doug Collins, and other scouts will conduct workouts with some of the top prospects available. We already knew a workout was scheduled for both Derrick Favors and DeMarcus Cousins, sparking some debate as to whether the Sixers will end up passing on Evan Turner or not.
Today, we can add more names to the list of players the Sixers will workout in the very near future. The one and only Evan Turner is scheduled to appear in Philadelphia on June 17, one day before the Favors/Cousins show. There is one other prospect the Sixers will work out that week, and his name is not John Wall (or Bill Nye the Science Guy).
On Saturday, June 19, the 76ers will host Wesley Johnson as he attempts to outshine the other prospects in hopes to make himself the 2nd overall selection later that week. Will it happen? Most likely no, but the Sixers are doing the smart thing and weighing all of their options.
"We want to make sure we get an additional look at the players available to us with the second overall pick in the NBA Draft," Sixers President and General Manager Ed Stefanski said. "These are all very talented prospects who can make an immediate impact at the next level..."
June 17 -- Evan Turner
June 18 -- Derrick Favors/DeMarcus Cousins
June 19 -- Wesley Johnson
Do whatever you need to do to get pumped up for the workouts (filling your passion bucket, crankin that Soulja Boy, or cookin with Coolio) because the draft is on its way boyz! In the meantime, try to enjoy the World Cup and use as much soccer (futbol) lingo as possible. It's worth it.
