Here's a look at four players in the draft (with last season's statistics) who could be wearing the Sixers' red, white, and blue uniform later this year:
Forward, Kentucky, Sophomore
6-foot-8, 244 pounds
Skinny: Jones is a talented athlete who will develop with good coaching; there is plenty of room for growth, both physical and mental. He has a 7-3 wingspan. Capable of playing either forward position at the NBA level, he is a good rebounder who can play both inside and outside. There are some questions about the consistency of his energy level. If he brings it - and he will have to if he's to reach his vast potential - he could become a very good NBA player.
Key statistics: 12.3 ppg., 7.2 rpg., 1.3 apg., 1.6 turnovers, 1.3 steals, 1.8 blocks, 29.3 min., .500 FG, .327 3PT, .627 FT.
Forward, Mississippi State, Junior
Skinny: He's a great rebounder already, something that NBA scouts tend to say usually carries over from the college game to the pros. Moultrie is a big-bodied guy, but he's anything but immobile. He does need to get stronger. What Sixers coach Doug Collins will like in him is his high motor and a willingness to defend, especially at the rim, which is a Sixers weakness. Moultrie has the ability to step outside and hit the jumper; he can face up to the basket.
Key statistics: 16.4 ppg., 10.5 rpg., 1.2 apg., 2.4 turnovers, 0.8 steals, 0.8 blocks, 35.8 min., .549 FG, .780 FT, .444 3PT.
Perry Jones III
Forward, Baylor, Sophomore
Skinny: Though he is projected to be a lottery pick, some question his motor. Many expected to see more development in Jones from his freshman season, but there wasn't a great deal. He's very athletic, capable of working inside and out, and he has a nice touch around the basket. As gifted as Jones is, the criticism of his game was glaring in the NCAA tournament, despite his leading Baylor to the Elite Eight.
Key statistics: 13.5 ppg., 7.6 rpg., 1.3 apg., 1.7 turnovers, 0.8 steals, 0.6 blocks, 30.7 min., .500 FG, .696 FT, .303 3PT.
Forward, North Carolina, Junior
Skinny: He's a very good rebounder and shot blocker, two important tools that will carry him during what could be a nice NBA career. He is North Carolina's all-time leader in blocked shots per game, at 2.56. Henson is very athletic and has great length (7-5 wingspan). The knock on him is that he is weak and is not too crazy about contact. He needs to develop his outside game at the next level.
Key statistics: 13.7 ppg., 9.9 rpg., 1.3 apg., 1.3 turnovers, 2.9 blocks, 29.1 min., .500 FG, .511 FT.
