Former Temple point guard Will Cummings didn't have to travel far to get to the next stop on his pre-draft continental tour. Cummings, along with Gonzaga point guard Kevin Pangos, Louisville guard Wayne Blackshear, Creighton center Will Artino and Washington State center Jordan Railey worked out for the Sixers at PCOM Wednesday afternoon, sources told Liberty Ballers.

Cummings, a three year starter at Temple, averaged 14.8 points on 40.2% shooting, 4.2 assists, and 4.1 rebounds per game during his senior season. The Jacksonville, Florida native played in the Reese's Division I College All-Star game, and was subsequently invited to the Portsmouth Invitational. He's got good size and an above average wingspan for the point guard position, but I'm not sure if he has a skill that is really translatable at the NBA level. However, there's a slight chance he could be selected in the late second round, and at the very least should have a handful of offers to play in Summer League.

Pangos played all four seasons at Gonzaga, and established himself as one of the better perimeter shooting guards in the nation. During his senior season, he averaged 11.6 points on 44.9% shooting from the floor and 43.1% from beyond the arc. Like Cummings, Pangos will be looking to land on a Summer League roster as an undrafted free agent.

The 2014-15 season was not kind to Blackshear, who saw his scoring numbers dip almost across the board. He finished the year shooting 39.5% from the floor, down from 43.5% during his junior season. He could play his way onto an NBA roster if he re-gains his shooting stroke, but seems certain to go undrafted.

The 6' 11" Artino saw his role slightly expanded during his final senior with the Bluejays, averaging 6.1 points and 4.7 rebounds in just 16.2 minutes per game.

Railey, a redshirt senior who spent time at Iowa State before transferring to Washington State, averaged 6.6 points and 3.2 minutes in 16.4 minutes per game. He's also probably best known for putting this poor soul from UTSA on a poster back in December. Both Artino and Railey should draw interest as undrafted free agents.
