The Philadelphia 76ers have the 15th pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Most analysts, fans and anyone else with an opinion on the matter, predict that they will select a big man to bolster their team. As for which big man they draft, much will depend on how the order of things shakes out. Chad Ford at ESPN says that the Sixers should make Washington Huskies forward Terrence Ross their top pick, but that might mean trading up in the draft.
Here is what Ford said in discussing potential trade scenarios for the Sixers:
They've been looking for a spot higher in the first round to nab Terrence Ross.
Ford's big board for Philadelphia, looks like this:
1. Terrence Ross
2. Jeremy Lamb
3. Arnett Moultrie
4. Perry Jones
5. Terrence Jones
Just how far up would they have to move to get Ross? In Ford's mock draft, Ross goes the Milwaukee Bucks, who pick one spot ahead of Philadelphia. Keep an eye on the rumor mill as the draft gets closer.
