Season of Change for the 76ers
  by: iradiotom - Philadelphia, PA

The Philadelphia 76ers are a team poised to make quite a few changes. After changing coaches last season, Doug Collins has proved change can be very good. The Sixers are scheduled for picks number 16 and 50 in the draft, but that may change too. There is speculation the veteran lineup may change, possibly trading Andre Iguodala to move up in the draft. The 76ers want to add a big man and a shooter. And ownership may change very soon. Talk is intensifying that the Sixers are about to be sold to New York billionaire Joshua Harris. After several down years, this could be a season of very positive change.

76ers Draft Picks -

#16 NIKOLA VUCEVIC 6-10 Forward USC
Good rebounder who can hit mid-ranger jumper

#50 LAVOY ALLEN 6=9 Forward Temple
Great defender, rebounder and passer. All-time Rebound Leader for Temple

Doesn't seem the Sixers found a big man in the draft or a ball handler. We'll see how they address those maybe with some trades.

Stefanski seems excited about his big man. "a pro-ready big man with solid fundamentals and legitimate NBA size"

Sixers general manager Ed Stefanski explained that the Sixers were so sold on Vucevic that they considered moving up in the draft to secure him.

Vucevic, 20, said he "had an idea" that he would be coming to Philly.

"He was in the mix for us all along," Stefanski said.

Continued Stefanski: "This was a brutal draft. . . . There were surprises all night long. In the draft room, we were shocked at where particular players went. Again, we were just looking to see if Vucevic could fall to us."

Vucevic, 20, played three seasons for the Trojans. He was born in Switzerland, raised in Belgium, and moved to Montenegro with his family as a teenager. His father, Borislav, played professionally overseas for 24 seasons.

"He wanted to come here. His agent told me," Stefanski said. "The kid is in love with [coach] Doug Collins and wants to play for him, so he's going to get his opportunity."

Vucevic said he and Collins had a number of great conversations.

"You could tell in the times we talked that he's a great person," Vucevic said. "I would really fit well with his system. He told me a lot of great things about me, what he liked about me, and which ways he could help me. I felt like it was a great fit for me."

In Vucevic, the Sixers said they are getting a pro-ready big man with solid fundamentals and legitimate NBA size.
