Sixers, Colangelo reportedly hold pre-draft workout with Grayson Allen

We could know as soon as Wednesday the result of the Philadelphia 76ers investigation into secret Twitter accounts linked to president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo and his wife. If this report is any indication on the decision, well, you're in for some disappointment. On Wednesday, the Sixers apparently held a pre-draft workout at their facilities and one of the players in attendance was Duke's Grayson Allen. Who else was in attendance? Bryan Colangelo.

In four seasons at Duke, Allen averaged 14.1 points on 43 percent shooting and 38 percent from beyond the arc. The statistics aren't really what scares people here. Allen was suspended after tripping an opponent from Elon, which was his third offense, back in January 2017. After getting called for it on court, Allen responded by throwing a temper tantrum on the bench. On March 9 this year, with the tripping incidents seemingly behind him, Allen was assessed a flagrant foul 1 in the ACC tournament for tripping North Carolina's Garrison Brooks with what was euphemistically called a "hip check".

The 2018 NBA Draft is set to take place on June 21 at 7:00 p.m. inside the home of the Brooklyn Nets, the Barclay's Center. The Sixers hold the No. 10 and No. 26 picks in the draft.
