Mikal Bridges from Villanova University.

The Sixers took the three-year player (two-year starter) from Villanova by way of Great Valley High School in Malvern, PA. (Shout out to a team called the Patriots that I can enjoy.) Here are the basics about Bridges:

6’7” (7’1” wingspan), 209 lbs.
17.7 PPG
5.3 RPG

.623 EFG%
+13.2 BPM
