The 76ers hosted six players today at the Philadelphia College of Orthopedic Medicine for pre-draft workouts: shooting guard Bryn Forbes (Michigan State), forward Grandy Glaze (Grand Canyon), forward Stefan Jankovic (Hawaii), guard Retin Obasohan (Alabama), guard David Walker (Northeastern) and center Stephen Zimmerman (UNLV), per the artist formerly known as Liberty Ballers' Derek Bodner:

A few notes on those guys:
- Zimmerman seems to be the lone player with a chance of being drafted, as he's currently DraftExpress' 35th-ranked prospect. The rest look to be undrafted players with the chance to catch on with with either the Sixers or another team for Summer League.
- Stefan Jankovic's name was originally Stefan Janko, but he changed it in order to improve his draft status (kidding).
- Grandy Glaze. What a name! He sounds like a new flavor at Federal Donuts. As Bodner late pointed out, Glaze's workout is strange, as a player from Grand Canyon hasn't played in the NBA since 1979. When there is some confusion and sneakiness about, it's always best to look see if a Colangelo is somehow pulling the strings as a puppeteer above the stage. And that's exactly what happened! Grand Canyon's business school is named "The Colangelo School of Business" after Papa Jerry himself.
Getting his son a job? Check. Getting someone from his below-the-radar school an NBA workout? Check. Will he get me a frigging job? Only time will tell.
