76ers Draft "Very Early" Preview

Everyone knows by now that the upcoming NBA draft in June, could be one of most defining moments in 76ers history. They have three first round draft picks and have to make good choices for the future to start looking brighter. As of right now, the Sixers are playing very well. So well that they are playing themselves right out of the Greg Oden and Kevin Durant sweepstakes. I'm still up in the air with how I really feel about that. On one hand its great seeing Andre Iguodala, Andre Miller, and the rest of this young team playing so well. Playing like a real "team" for the first time, in a long time. On the other hand both Durant and Oden would look damn good in a Sixers uniform. So assuming that they do not get the First or Second pick, there are still a lot of very good players to help build around the already existing talent that they have. With that heres a quick look at some players that Sixers are thought to be looking at courtsey of NBAdraft.net. Click players name to see preview.

Julian Wright, KAN, SF

Marcus Williams, ARI, PG

Joakim Noah, FLA, PF

Williams is actually a SF/SG, not a PG.
