After canceling his workout in Philadelphia over the weekend on the grounds that he got "real sick," per the Inquirer's Keith Pompey, it appears that Russell will make up for that lost meeting with the Sixers tomorrow:
The conspiracy theories, the idea that he hates the Sixers, the thought that the Lakers guaranteed him with their pick and the Great Eskin Debate of 2015 can all be put aside for a moment, if a fleeting one. Those that are shipping "Voodoo" Russell and the Sixers can exhale, knowing that the Ohio State freshman will be running through one-on-chair drills with the team tomorrow.
Russell isn't the only point guard that Sam Hinkie and the Sixers will see this week, as Emmanuel Mudiay has been in Philly over the last two days:
Emmanuel Mudiay's schedule: 6/6 - Lakers workout 6/8 - dinner w/ Knicks 6/9 - Knicks workout 6/15 - dinner w/ Sixers 6/16 - Sixers workout— Adam Zagoria (@AdamZagoria) June 5, 2015
With Mudiay gorging on steaks with Hinkie, Russell shooting threes in an empty City Line Ave. gym, Kristaps Porzingis flying up mock drafts, and the possibility of Karl-Anthony Towns or Jahlil Okafor sliding to the third pick, all of the big names are still in play for the Sixers with their precious first rounder.
