The Sixers hosted six more draft prospects on Friday, continuing the pre-draft process. From our own Jake Fischer:

Each prospect was a college senior or the equivalent, and is at least 22-years-old.

T.J. McConnell, rated 64th on DraftExpress.com's Big Board and 76th on ESPN's Top 100, played point at Arizona. An on-court leader of a team that played young players a lot of minutes for a big program, McConnell averaged 10.4 points and 6.3 assists per game last season. At 6'2", he's an average-sized point guard who might fit at the end of an NBA bench and is the most widely-known of the prospects who participated in the workout.

Kendall Gray, a 6'10" center, played four years at Delaware State, averaging a double-double in his senior year. Most notably, his rebound rate jumped into near-elite territory during his senior year, by more than three rebounds per 100 possessions. He also averaged at least three blocks per 100 possessions in each collegiate year. He is 23-years-old.

Chasson Randle, a Senior out of Stanford, averaged 19.3 points per game last season (and is 88th on DX's Top 100). He fits the mold of an undersized, scoring off-guard.

Jarvis Threatt, 97th on DX's Top 100, played in the D-League last year with Houston's affiliate. He averaged 13 points and 5 assists in a good environment for offense, in just 21 minutes per game. Unlike most potential draftees out of the D-League, Threatt is 22 years old and played his college ball in the same arena that hosts the Delaware 87ers (at the University of Delaware).

K.T. Harrell, a 6'4" guard out of Auburn, averaged 18.5 points per game in his senior season. He shot 43% on threes and has a 6'9" wingspan, according to DX's measurements, and averaged nearly six free throw attempts per game. For a prospect that's relatively unheralded, those are intriguing measurements.

Gabriel Olaseni, a four-year 23-year-old out of Iowa, averaged 8.1 points per game in 18 minutes per in his final season. 6'10" with a 7'3.5" wingspan, he might be considered a potential NBA role player, though at age 23 he's older than a typical project big.
