The offseason is now here for the Sixers, as they already fired head coach Brett Brown and wait for free agency and the draft to approach them. This year’s board has a lot of potential, and the Sixers could really benefit heavily from it. This is my draft overview and my top three realistic candidates for Sixers at 21st on the draft board.
3: Jahmi’us Ramsey, Texas Tech
Number 3 is Jahmi’us Ramsey, who is a 6’4 point guard who can shoot the ball and create shots effectively. He averaged 15 PPG, 4 RPG, and 2 APG. He would provide much needed scoring and shooting depth for the bench. He can provide effective minutes when we need a bucket, and is a great leader. I think he would be great off the bench as a backup point guard. The only reason I didn’t put Ramsey higher on the list is that his style of play is a little different from how the Sixers run things, and I don’t know if he would mesh well as an off-ball point guard in some rotations.
2. Josh Green, Arizona
At number 2, we have Josh Green, who is 1/2 of the deadly Arizona guard duo this year who proved himself to be a versatile scorer and shooter. Green can score and shoot at well, and is very versatile on both sides of the floor. Green can defend very well and is a great stretch two. He can work well off the ball as much as with it, and I think that he would fit amazingly with our rotations. His three point shooting isn’t the best, but hopefully under a new coach he would strengthen his shooting. All in all, Green is a great prospect, and should be heavily considered by us at the 21st spot.
1. Tyrell Terry, Stanford
At first place, we have none other than Stanford shooting guard Tyrell Terry. Terry is a natural sharpshooter, and one of the best shooters in the draft. Terry would be an awesome offensive threat to have, and would be awesome with Embiid and Ben among others. Terry averaged 14.6 PPG, 4.5 RPG, and 3.2 APG with 44.1 FG% and 40.8 3P%, which is great. Terry is also an above average defender, so he isn’t only a one player and isn’t a liability like our other previous sharpshooters JJ Redick and current shooter Furkan Korkmaz. Tyrell would fit amazingly, and we may even be able to trade down because he hasn’t been heavily scouted. Tyrell Terry should be the go-to pick at 21 for Sixers if available. Thank you for reading!
