Sixers to get second look at Knox, Smith on Tuesday

By Josh Liddick, Sports Talk Philly editor 

Weirdly enough, the NBA Draft is just four days away and we'll finally find out who the Philadelphia 76ers will be picking in the lottery.

Even though there were whispers that the Sixers were planning on trading into the top five, as of now, those whispers have been silenced and the Sixers are still set to use their No. 10 pick in Thursday's draft.

According to Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice, the Sixers will have their first second workouts with select players of the draft season, signaling specific interest in certain players.

Texas Tech guard Zhaire Smith will be in a group workout for the second time in two weeks after he had a successful workout in Camden last Tuesday. Kentucky forward Kevin Knox worked out with the Sixers on Friday, this time will be in an individual setting, as the team is certainly trying to get an even better look at the prospect.

Last week, Mark Perner of the Philly Daily News mentioned on the Pick Swap Podcast that Smith could be considered as a dark horse pick of the draft, as he has steadily risen through the ranks in Mock Drafts all around the web.

The workouts on Tuesday followed a group workout on Monday that featured Arizona guard Allonzo Trier and Bucknell center Nana Foulland.
