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

Chris (Philadelphia): Latest news surrounding the Lakers and what they will do with the #2 pick? Chad Ford: Same situation. They're digging ... If Towns is there at 2. That's a lock. If it's Okafor, I think it's up in the air between Okafor, Russell and Mudiay. All three in the mix. But not strong feeling right now which guy it would be. I also hear they are digging on Porzingis, though I doubt they have the guts to take him that high. ESPN.com

Though the Sixers had interviewed a bunch of players at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago and brought more than a dozen in for workouts prior to last Tuesday night’s draft lottery, there’s a lot of work to do over the next month. Don’t be surprised if Hinkie and the Sixers exceed last year’s total of working out a reported 75 players in Philadelphia. “We’ve done a ton,” Hinkie said after the draft lottery in New York. “We’ve really tried to do our work early in ways that might be unusual for the Sixers in the past. That’s important to me. We really turned up the heat in a big way. It doesn’t stop. I’m not wired well to say that’s enough.” The Intelligencer

But all preliminary indications are the two post players will go first and second to the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lakers. So the belief is that Russell will join power forward Nerlens Noel and center Joel Embiid, the current cornerstones of the Sixers. Philadelphia Inquirer
