Sixers Will Draft 11th Overall, Bob Cooney Previewed Draft on Sports Bash
As expected, the Sixers did not have luck on their side Tuesday night and will hold the 11th overall pick in next months NBA Draft.
Sixers owner Joshua Harris represented the team in New York.
The current crop of talent in this years draft is underwhelming lacking a concise, clear cut number one overall pick unlike years past.
Although some experts are pointing to it's depth for optimism.
Bob Cooney, Philadelphia Daily News, called 'The Sportsbash' on Tuesday to preview the Sixers off season with Mike Gill and offered three possible selections the team could go with next month:
1. Front court help that stays home underneath rim (i.e. complete opposite of Spencer Hawes)
2. Reserve point guard to spell Jrue Holiday
3. Outside shooting help
Cooney also talked about the coaching search and reported that according to an NBA executive, the search is "on the back burner" for right now.
The Cleveland Cavaliers won the lottery for the second time in three years.
The Orlando Magic, who held the best chance of winning the lottery fell to the second selection, while the Washington Wizards leapfrogged into the top-3 for the third overall selection.
The 2013 NBA Draft is slated for Thursday, June 27th at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.
