ESPN NBA analyst Kevin Pelton was a fan of the Sixers’ draft class, giving the team a A- for their selections.

McCain's shooting (41% on nearly six 3-point attempts per game) should fit well on a team that needs to space the floor for Joel Embiid.

McCain, standing a hair above 6-foot-2, averaged 14.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 1.1 steals per game.

At 6-foot-10 and 245 pounds, Bona averaged 12.4 points, 5.9 boards, 1.2 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.8 blocks across 26.5 minutes in his sophomore season for UCLA.
