NBA Draft Rumors: Sixers expected to draft Dante Exum No. 3 overall


The NBA Draft is just around the corner and it’s looking like teams are starting to hammer out their final strategies to make sure that they have everything in order heading into the big night.

One team that is at the top of the draft is doing exactly this and it seems as though they’re zeroing in on two of the best prospects in the draft class. Philadelphia wanted the No. 1 pick but they ended up with No. 3 and will still come away with a more than solid prospect.

According to Gery Woefel from the Racine Journal Times, the general assumption throughout the NBA is that Dante Exum will the selection for the Philadelphia 76ers when they go on the clock at No. 3 overall.

It’s generally assumed the Philadelphia 76ers will pick guard Dante Exum with the third overall pick. But a person close to the Sixers said Indiana forward Noah Vonleh is drawing keen interest as well.

Noah Vonleh is a really attractive prospect as he continues to fly under the radar in terms of how the other top prospects are being talked about yet he remains one of the best forward prospects in his class. He’s going to be probably the first power forward selected and is already a dark horse to be one of the best rookies of his class when the season is said and done.

The same is being said about Exum though, and while the Sixers seems to have narrowed their list of wants, the decision awaiting them at No. 3 overall is monumental.
