Sixers Schedule Workouts With Draft Prospects Turner, Favors, Cousins, And Johnson

The Philadelphia 76ers, who own the second overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, announced today that they've scheduled workouts with Ohio State's Evan Turner, Georgia Tech's Derrick Favors, Kentucky's DeMarcus Cousins, and Syracuse's Wesley Johnson. More from the release:

“We want to make sure we get an additional look at the players available to us with the second overall pick in the NBA Draft,” Sixers President and General Manager Ed Stefanski said. “These are all very talented prospects who can make an immediate impact at the next level and while exploring these options, we would have to be presented with a blockbuster offer to even consider trading this pick.”

It's assumed that the 76ers, who already have dynamic perimeter players like point guard Jrue Holiday, combo guard Louis Williams, and swingman Andre Iguodala, would nab a big man with this pick. Yet the inclusion of Turner and Johnson calls that assumption into question, and might hint that Philadelphia is open to trading down.

The draft is less than two weeks away, and yet the only given is that John Wall will go first overall to the Wizards.
