Sixers Pre-Draft Workouts

I'm not sure how much actual insight pre-draft workouts give you inside a team's draft strategy, especially with guys refusing to work out because they think they'll be drafted prior to an inquiring team's pick, and private, almost secretive workouts that often take place without anyone finding out until much later. However; as a fan I've always found it somewhat soothing to go into a draft knowing which guys my favorite team worked out prior to try to give myself an idea of who they may be considering with their draft picks. This works out especially well for the second round of the NBA Draft.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to provide every name of every player the Sixers have worked out in the previous month and change, so if I miss a player feel free to chime in with your comments. Most of these names I'm gathering from various Deep Sixer posts from beat writer Kate Fagan, and the rest are from Tom Moore of Philly Burbs.

A list of prospects the Sixers have worked out after the jump.
