The Sixers welcomed six NBA draft hopefuls to PCOM on Saturday.

Saturday's pre-draft workout at PCOM included a former McDonald's All-American, the D-III Player of the Year, as well as a former local product.

According to a league source, the Philadelphia 76ers worked out center Dakari Johnson (Kentucky), guard Will Cummings (Temple), guard Aaron Walton-Moss (Cabrini College), guard Javier Duren (Yale), forward Chavaughn Lewis (Marist) and power forward Kameron Woods (Butler).

Johnson, the number two center in the class of 2013 according to ESPN.com, spent two years at the University of Kentucky before opting to turn pro. With a plethora of big men all trying to share playing time, Johnson was limited to just 16.3 minutes per game during his sophomore year. He averaged 6.4 points on 50.6% shooting from the floor, as well as 4.6 rebounds per game. He posted a 14.9 body fat percentage at the 2015 NBA Draft Combine, the most out of any player there. He's firmly supplanted as a second round talent.

This was Cummings' second workout with the Sixers, as he was a participant in a group workout on June 3. For a likely un-drafted free agent, to get a follow up workout with an NBA team is unlikely. With this much interest already shown, it wouldn't be a huge surprise if the Sixers offered him a spot on their summer league roster in Las Vegas or Utah. Cummings was a starter for the Temple Owls for three years, and averaged 14.8 points during his senior season.

Walton-Moss, a Camden, New Jersey native, had quite the impressive career at Cabrini College. The 6' 1" point guard was named D-III Player of the Year by the National Association of Basketball Coaches in 2014 for an outstanding junior season where he averaged an eye popping 24.8 points, 10.9 rebounds, and 5.9 assists. During his senior season he successfully defended his Player of the Year title with averages of 20.6 points, 11.7 rebounds, and 8.8 assists per game.

Duren, a 6' 4" guard from St. Louis, averaged 14 points on 40.2% shooting from the field, and 36.4% from beyond the arc. He was named 1st Team All-Ivy this year after receiving honorable mention after his junior season.

Lewis led Marist in most major statistical categories this season, including points (20.7), assists (2.7), steals (2.3), and minutes (35.7) per game. He was named Second Team All-MAAC, and his 2,119 career points are the most in Marist men's basketball history.

Woods excelled in his second year as a starter with the Butler Bulldogs, averaging 7.8 points and 9.9 rebounds per game. In his senior season he led the Big East in total rebounds with 337.
