2012 NBA Draft Rumors: Sixers Work Out Six Big Men on Saturday

With the draft on Thursday, the Philadelphia 76ers hosted six big men for a workout on Saturday, according to While it is unclear who they are leaning towards selecting, it's clear that they will target size in the draft.

The six players that Philadelphia worked out were Andrew Nicholson of St. Bonaventure, Perry Jones III of Baylor, John Henson and Tyler Zeller of North Carolina, Arnett Moultrie of Mississippi State and Terrence Jones of Kentucky.

The workout proved strenuous for those who attended.

Saturday’s workout, a few of the players admitted, was one of the toughest they have participated in thus far, because of how familiar they've become with one another. Last season, Moultrie’s Bulldogs played against both Jones III’s Baylor team and SEC-rival Jones’ national-champion Kentucky squad. North Carolina and Kentucky also saw each other out-of-conference.

The Sixers hold the 15th pick of the draft.
