The goal for the 76ers is to find the right complementary guy. They want to use the 24th pick in the NBA draft on someone who can fit in with Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris, two soon-to-be free agents they hope to re-sign. “That’s hopefully somebody that can come in and contribute right away,” Vince Rozman, the Sixers’ senior director or scouting, said on Monday.
Ben Simmons, Andrew Bogut, Patty Mills and Aron Baynes are among the NBA players picked in an extended Australia squad to prepare for the FIBA World Cup. Boomers coach Andrej Lemanis announced a 17-man squad on Thursday for warmup games the U.S. team and Canada in August. Simmons, who missed Australia’s run to the semifinals at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, confirmed his availability for the World Cup after his Philadelphia 76ers were knocked out of the Eastern Conference semifinals last week on Kawhi Leonard’s Game 7-ending buzzer-beater for Toronto.
