Philadelphia 76ers NBA Mock Draft Roundup


Leading up to the 2020 NBA Draft, we will update our Philadelphia 76ers Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Philadelphia 76ers from several prominent sites and draft analysts.



The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the 76ers:

NBA Draft Room, Updated: 6/17
22. Tyrell Terry, Stanford

A sweet-shooting guard who has a scorer's mentality and gets his shot off quickly. A bit undersized and will struggle to guard in the League but his offensive talent is special.

22. Grant Riller, Charleston

Grant Riller is a ridiculously productive scorer who might have the best first step of any prospect in the class. He ranked seventh-best among Division I players in total isolation scoring, averaging 3.2 points per game. He is also an incredible interior finisher who shot 107-of-152 (70.4%) within five feet of the basket in 2019-20. That was second-best among all high-volume finishers 6-foot-3 or shorter. For a team like the Philadelphia 76ers, who need someone capable of running the offense in the second unit or to share the backcourt with Simmons like Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet in Toronto, there may be no one in this class more qualified than Riller.

22. Jahmi'us Ramsey, Texas Tech

I've gone through stages with Ramsey. I loved him in high school. I was frustrated by him early on in his college career, as Texas Tech worked through figuring out what the best way to use him is. What they've settled on is as a scorer and an elite shot-maker. The big red flag for me is that I expected Ramsey to play the Jarrett Culver-Keenan Evans role for Texas Tech, but he's not that guy because he is not on their level at creating out of ball-screens or as a passer. Since he is only 6-foot-4, that's something to monitor in the longterm.

But he's a bouncy athlete that can play in transition, shoots the cover off of the ball and should be able to attack closeouts. The two major question marks are on the defensive end of the floor and shooting off of the dribble, but those are things that can be improved with time. He's not the player that I thought he would be, but he's still good enough that using a top 25 pick on him makes sense.

21. Jalen Smith, Maryland

Not all prospects who return for their sophomore seasons actually help themselves from a draft-stock perspective, but Jalen Smith clearly did. He added strength, improved his field goal percentage by 4.6 points, his 3-point percentage by 8.0 points, and averaged more points (15.5), rebounds (10.5) and blocks (2.4) than he did the year. The result was Maryland winning a share of the Big Ten title and Smith solidifying himself as a real option in the first round who should be able to play both the 4 and the 5 in the NBA.

22. Cole Anthony, North Carolina

This pick is top-20 protected for Oklahoma City, which can keep it with enough losses in Orlando. Should that happen, Philadelphia will instead receive two second-round picks from the Thunder. While Anthony would back up Ben Simmons at the point in Philadelphia, his shooting ability allows him to play on the court with the bigger Simmons.

CBS Sports - Boone, Updated: 6/11
21. Cassius Stanley, Duke

Cassius Stanley was a little-known role player at Duke but his strengths scream valuable NBA role player. He rated in the 93rd percentile as a catch and shoot shooter last season, per Synergy, and has the jump-out-the-gym athleticism to affect the game as a dunker. His defense should be a net-positive in the NBA as well.

SI.com - Woo, Updated: 6/3
22. Tyrell Terry, Stanford

Terry would be an intriguing fit long-term in Philly as a consistent shooter who can play on and off the ball, and who theoretically meshes neatly alongside Ben Simmons. He needs time to get stronger and work on his handle, but has a good case in the back half of the first round as a developmental guard. The Sixers won't need their first-rounder to play immediately and also have four second-rounders, so they can afford to invest long-term here. Terry's skill set and ability to play on and off the ball falls in line with the type of guards the Sixers tend to value, and he has attractive upside in this part of the draft.

22. Nico Mannion, Arizona

Mannion struggled late in the season for Arizona but scouts still love his playmaking ability and quick shot release. His draft range is all over the place with some having him inside the Top 10 or falling to the mid-twenties. Born in Italy, Mannion's dad played six years in the NBA and four years overseas.
