The Philadelphia 76ers will have two picks in the first round of the 2014 NBA Draft. Since this draft class is filled with future stars, I would say they are pretty lucky. With pick No. 3, let’s take a look at five targets for Philadelphia.
I highly doubt Noah Vonleh is taken by Philly with pick No. 3, but he is still a good target to keep an eye on. That tends to be the case when a player has as much upside as Indiana’s former star freshman.
Just like Vonleh, it would be a surprise if the 76ers took Aaron Gordon. Still, he is a freak in the athletic department and he can play solid defense from Day 1.
Philadelphia will more than likely pick whoever Milwaukee and Cleveland leave on the table. There are three players in this draft who could go No. 1 overall. Joel Embiid is one of them and if he falls to pick No. 3, Philadelphia would be getting a solid center.
Jabari Parker is the most NBA-ready player thanks to his skills on the offensive side of the ball. Whether it be shooting the long-ball or driving to the hoop, Parker can literally do it all on offense.
Andrew Wiggins can also score in basically any way imaginable. The thing that separates him from Parker, and everyone else in the draft, is his athleticism. That and he plays good defense. This is the most skilled player in the entire draft and although he may not be as ready as Parker, he has the most potential.
