Sixers add Maurice Harkless in Draft
The Sixers selected a long, lanky perimeter player, who measures in at 6-8 and weighs 208 pounds with the 15th overall pick in Thursday's NBA draft.
Maurice Harkless has what Sixers president Rod Thorn termed "tremendous upside". Those two words are a draft night buzz kill when fans are looking for their team to add to its roster a player that fills a gaping hole.
Leading up to draft night the belief was that the Sixers were going after an athletic big man who can rebound and defend. In his lone college season at St. John's, Harkless averaged 15 points and 8.6 rebounds playing the power forward position.
