While there aren't any lottery picks in there, there are certainly players who could go late in the first round or early in the second, where the Sixers have five different selections at #35, #37, #47, #58 and #60.

The most intriguing prospects in there for me are Brazils' George Lucas de Paula, who'll surely be nicknamed Chewbacca if he ever comes to the NBA and measured as a 6'5.5" point guard with a 7'0" wingspan this week, and UTEP's Vince Hunter, an undersized power forward who had a defensive rebounding rate of 25.9% as a sophomore this season.

The Harrison twins are also playing on separate teams! Will they be able to cope being alone? Does anyone know which Harrison is which? I'm still unsure even two years after Kentucky.

Please help team Liberty Ballers qualify for the $1 million The Basketball Tournament this summer in Philadelphia!
