CSN Philly has the 76ers taking Terrence Ross in their final mock draft:
15. Philadelphia 76ers – Terrence Ross – 6-6, 200, SG, Washington
The popular opinion is the 76ers are in the market for a big man. That certainly makes sense given the uncertain futures of Spencer Hawes and Elton Brand and the abundance of post players available in this draft.
But I have a feeling the front office is looking for a perimeter scorer. Their second-round playoff exit against the Celtics was marred by prolonged scoring droughts that not even the 76ers’ staunch defense could overcome. Long story short – they need someone that can make shots on a regular basis. Ross can do just that.
I attended his workout at PCOM two weeks ago and listened to Director of Player Personnel Courtney Witte gush about Ross’ future. He’s one of the two or three best shooters in this draft, and fills a need for the 76ers.

I would personally like to see the Sixers get Terrence Jones. He was a top 5 pick last year if he left college and declared for the NBA draft. He’s a guy with a lot of potential and was on a team loaded with talent so he was kind of overlooked. If he slips to 15, this is a guy I would love to see on the Sixers.
1 Star for the field, better players out there
5 Stars Terrence Jones, high potential and then maybe you can trade Iggy
