Sixers Win 2016 NBA Draft Lottery


After losing a total of 199 games over the past three seasons, the Philadelphia 76ers finally were rewarded for their rebuilding/tanking plan.

With head coach Brett Brown representing the team, the Sixers landed the first overall pick in Tuesday night’s NBA draft lottery and the right to choose either LSU freshman forward Ben Simmons or Duke freshman forward Brandon Ingram, considered to be the top two prospects in the draft.
