Vuvecic or Montejiunas would be good fits since this team has so little shooting. They can help space the floor and knock down shots. Vuvecic seems like he'd be a pretty good defensive rebounder too. Some say the difference between him and Kanter is minimal

The 76ers haven't decided to take a big man with the 16th pick in the June 23 NBA Draft, according to team president Rod Thorn.

In an email response Tuesday night, Thorn said the Sixers "have not determined which way we will go concerning position. It depends on who is available and what we may or may not do before the draft."

Sixers have said that while big is a need, they wont pass up a perimeter talent if one were to fall to them. I never heard the not drafting anyone under 6'8 claim.
