Sixers' Harkless to be featured in Orlando Pro Summer League

Posted: July 10, 2012

The 76ers will open their Orlando Pro Summer League schedule on Monday with a 5 p.m. game against a team representing the Indiana Pacers.

The league features a five-day schedule, from Monday through Friday, at the Orlando Magic's practice court at the Amway Center.

Headlining the Sixers team will be Maurice Harkless, the 15th overall pick in the recent NBA draft. Harkless, the Sixers' first pick in the draft, was named Big East rookie of the year last season at St. John's after averaging 15.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.4 blocks.

The Sixers will not get a look at rookie forward Arnett Moultrie, chosen out of Mississippi State with the 27th pick by the Miami Heat. Moultrie, whom the Sixers acquired in a trade from Miami during the draft, is sidelined with a sprained left ankle that happened during a predraft workout in Sacramento on June 25.

Joining Harkless will be the Sixers' first-round pick from last year's draft, Nik Vucevic. The 7-footer appeared in 51 games with 15 starts for the Sixers last season, averaging 5.5 points and 4.8 rebounds.

Also on the Sixers' roster is former Penn point guard Zack Rosen.

The summer league is comprised of eight teams - the 76ers, Boston, Brooklyn, Detroit, Indiana, Oklahoma City, Orlando, and Utah - each of which will play five games.


Monday vs. Indiana, 5 p.m.

Tuesday vs. Utah, 11 a.m.

Wednesday vs. Brooklyn, 3 p.m.

Thursday vs. Orlando, 5 p.m.

Friday vs. Detroit, noon.
