“I don’t see us moving up,” Sixers president Rod Thorn said after watching Illinois center Meyers Leonard work out Tuesday. Meyers, who’s 7-foot-1, 245 pounds, is one of several power forwards or centers who the Sixers have worked out over the past four weeks. Delaware News Journal

Looks like all the talk about Rod Thorn being a lame duck was a bit premature. When asked over a week ago what his role would be in the upcoming draft – right after it was reported that Danny Ferry was the leading candidate to take over his job as Sixers president, Rod Thorn had this to say to The Inquirer regarding Thursday’s upcoming talent grab. "Oh, yeah," Thorn said. "We will do it the same way we did last year. I'm busy with that now, and it will be exactly the same way." Philadelphia Inquirer

According to a source reached on Monday, Thorn, who still has a full year remaining on his contract with the Sixers, will continue in this capacity while a search for his successor continues. “Can’t imagine that right now they would just turn over the draft and what they are going to do in the short amount of time that they have now,” the source said.
