#NBA story (with Sam Hinkie video): Russell, #Sixers could be a match at No. 3; Mudiay also in mix: bit.ly/1K35UWD #76ers

Derek Bodner

Amazing to me how "the Sixers should get the 3rd pick because they need perimeter players" has turned into "man, getting the 3rd pick sucks"

Derek Bodner

"Should draft Russell because the Sixers need perimeter players!" "The plan is failing because they'll take Russell at 3 and didn't move up"

For selfish reasons, would like Towns to join #Sixers. Great interview - bright, funny, looks you in eyes, Len Bias one of his idols.

Sam Hinkie on ROY voting: "If you chose to tune us out in November, I understand why maybe you voted where you did." #sixers

Tom Moore

K-A Towns b4 lottery: 'My overall thought would be extreme joy to play for an organization like that (the #Sixers).' Probably gone by 3, tho

Tom Moore

D'Ang Russell on playing 4 #Sixers: 'If I end up there, it'd be a blessing. I'm going to make the best out the situation. I'm ready 4 it.'

Would say Towns, Okafor, Russell, Mudiay & ? RT @JimmyMcGinn06: hey tom, who are the top 5 college players 76ers are really interested in?

Nerlens Noel gets five votes for #NBA All-Defensive Team. #Sixers

Knicks had most waived salary - mostly Amare', then Sixers @BBallInsiders - Nets highest overall salary - then Cavs basketballinsiders.com/which-nba-team…

Derek Bodner

Funny thing is, I see #sixers, with Embiid, Noel, Saric, and Russell/Hezonja as actually building something for first time in over a decade.

Ian Begley

Here are the 4-digit combinations that kept #Knicks out of the lottery: Lakers: 6, 8, 4, 11; Sixers: 7, 2, 13, 10; T-Wolves: 1, 3, 7, 6

Now that the 76ers get their pick of the two best guards in the draft, the MCW trade is even more of a win for them. nba.com/2015/news/feat…

Could Jahlil Okafor falling to 3 be the best case scenario for the #sixers? nba.derekbodner.com/2015/05/20/bes…

Eric Pincus

Lakers now owe their 2016 1st to the Sixers (top-3 protected) and 2018 1st to the Magic (top-5 protected) - 2017 no longer going to Orlando

Emiliano Carchia

Timberwolves wins the NBA draft lottery, Knicks out of the top-three 1. TWolves 2. Lakers 3. 76ers 4. Knicks sportando.com/en/usa/nba/161…

Derek Bodner

The only thing better than the RTRS / @Liberty_Ballers lottery party is when we rent out a bar for the #sixers next road playoff game.

Ryan Wolstat

Sixers have to wait a year for firsts from Lakers, Heat, but still have No. 3 pick and five second-rounders. Boston 4 1st 4 seconds in 2016

Derek Bodner

Everyone I've talked to tonight seems like it's a foregone conclusion that the #sixers go Russell at 3 if he's available. Almost too obvious

Tom Moore

Adam Zagoria

Sixers could have 4 1st-round picks in 2016 "@illwill5015: @Adam Zagoria lakers,heat,okc,their own"

Derek Bodner

Honest question, are any #sixers fans still at buffalo wild wings?

Derek Bodner

500 #sixers fans showed up at a bar to watch the NBA lottery. That's absurd. And awesome. And absurdly awesome.

Adam Zagoria

And oh by the way, the Sixers have 4 1st-round picks in 2016..Skal Labissiere, Jaylen Brown, Ben Simmons, Henry Ellenson, etc.

Frank Isola

FYI: Minnesota won the the third pick as well. That meant they had to draw again. The Sixers combo came up next.

Ira Winderman

Elisburg, on Heat not losing pick to 76ers,"From our end of it your eyes were certainly more on making sure someone behind you didn't leap."

Ira Winderman

The winning combination for No. 3 lottery pick was 7-2-13-10. The "2" knocked out the Heat and gave the pick to the 76ers.

Scott Howard-Cooper

Mock draft has been filed Twolves: Towns Lakers: Okafor 76ers: Russell Knicks: Mudiay Magic: Porzingis Kings: Cauley-Stein Link to come.

Baxter Holmes

76ers GM Sam Hinkie: "I said the day we traded for the Lakers pick, we anticipated they’d get a top-3 pick...And they did. Good for them."

Baxter Holmes

76ers GM Sam Hinkie: "We never anticipated we’d get the Lakers’ pick this year."

Chad Ford

Here’s Mock Draft 5.0: Towns to Wolves, Okafor to Lakers, Russell to Sixers. Picks 4-30: es.pn/1HrvIeF

Chris Herring

Unless Lakers & Sixers both draft a guard, no. Probably not. MT @TagMyJPP: Is there a scenario where the Knicks can still get Okafor/Towns?

Tom Moore

Mudiay on joining #Sixers: 'That'd be a fun team to watch, a run-and-gun team. It'd definitely be something to look forward to.' #76ers
