15
-BJ Mullens
16
-Terrence Williams


My pick is Eric Maynor. Ed Stefanski has said he would go for the best guard available and the only SG I could see him taking over a PG just went at #16. Andre Miller is unlikely to re-sign, Royal Ivey decided to not pick up his player option, so currently Lou Williams is our only "PG" on the roster. I wouldn't be surprised if the Sixers picked Lawson but there's a couple reasons why I am not picking Ty. 1)Lawson seems to only be able to play at one speed; really really fast. While Maynor is able to play fast, slow, in the middle, or all 3 in 1 possession. 2)Lawson is only 5'11" and it would be extremely difficult to have both he and Lou Williams on the floor at the same time. 3)Lawson has had some injury problems recently.4) I believe Maynor projects as the better long range shooter in the NBA, a Sixers weakness.

Maynor/Lou/Thad/Speights is a great 22 and under core to build for the future.


Count:

Eric Maynor-8
Ty Lawson-5
