The 2015 NBA Draft turned out be one of the most boring draft nights in recent memory, but 76ers General Manager Sam Hinkie didn’t let the bland nature of last night stop him from using his six draft picks to bring home six players who stand 6’6 or taller. Included in Hinkie’s haul for 2015 were a franchise level big man; two draft and stash European players; a first-team All-MAC Conference power forward; an ACC prospect who plays above the rim; and a third European prospect who many feel is NBA ready right now.
The 2015 NBA Draft will certainly not be remembered as an exciting, whirlwind, Hinkiepalooza style event that we have come to expect from the 76ers chief basketball decision maker. However when we look back years from now we could view the 2015 Draft as a key turning point in this franchise’s fortunes.
