One way or another, the 76ers will continue to add to their young core in this summer’s NBA Draft. Depending on how the ping-pong balls bounce in the upcoming Draft Lottery, the Sixers could own as few as one or as many as three 1st round selections at the 2015 NBA Draft. The organization obviously needs a lot of luck in said Lottery.
After the news broke that Julius Erving, who represented the team at last year’s Draft Lottery, was unavailable to attend this June, the team announced that Nerlens Noel would be taking his place.
I love Nerlens Noel, and was beyond impressed with his development throughout his rookie season. I think he has great things ahead of him in his NBA career, and I legitimately believe that he will compete for, if not win, multiple Defensive Player of the Year awards. With that said however, I would have preferred the team to send Allen Iverson.
