Review of 76ers 'The Process'
In the three years of "The Process," the Sixers have put themselves in position to improve with high draft picks. In his first season, former general manager Sam Hinkie worked his way into getting Nerlens Noel with the sixth pick after trading All-Star Jrue Holiday to New Orleans. He then used the 11th pick to grab Michael Carter-Williams, the eventual rookie of the year. In his second draft, the hope was Andrew Wiggins but became an injured Joel Embiid at No. 3, and last year Jahlil Okafor fell to them at the third spot also. Pretty much all those picks, save Carter-Williams, were no-brainers and the jury is still out on how the three bigs will help the organization moving forward.
