The 76ers will work out former La Salle and Dobbins High standout Jerrell Wright on Thursday. The 6-foot-9, 245-pound post player averaged 12.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists as a senior this past season for the Explorers. The second-team all-Big-Five selection shot 60.3 percent from the field. Wright could latch on with a team as a role-playing, undrafted rookie free agent. The 22-year-old said he could provide energy and display leadership, set screens and protect guards for the Sixers. Philadelphia Inquirer

Chris Dempsey: Askia Booker says he was asked about his refusal to play in the CBI tournament by the 76ers, and expects to be asked by other teams as well. Booker:"It's something I'm willing to address no doubt. I have no issue addressing that. When the question comes I'll be able to answer it." Twitter @dempseypost
