The Philadelphia 76ers can take a big step towards getting back to the postseason during the 2014 NBA Draft.
They already have two nice pieces in 2013 draft picks, center Nerlens Noel and point guard Michael Carter-Williams, who won the Rookie of the Year Award. Now, they will have the chance to add two more – they hold the third-overall and 10th-overall picks in the 2014 NBA Draft.
On Wednesday, the 76ers are scheduled to work out several players they could target with the 10th-overall selection.
According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com, the 76ers will work out former Michigan State Spartans’ guard Gary Harris, former Duke Blue Devils’ forward Rodney Hood, former North Carolina Tar Heels and Texas Legends’ forward P.J. Hairston, former North Carolina State Wolfpack forward T.J. Warren, former Clemson Tigers’ forward K.J. McDaniels and former Syracuse Orange forward C.J. Fair.
