--The Sixers were expected to work out G/F Evan Turner, F Derrick Favors, F/C DeMarcus Cousins and also hope to take a longer look at G John Wall. The Sixers appear to be leaning toward Turner with the second overall pick in the June 24 NBA Draft, with Wall going No. 1 to the Wizards.
Favors, the likely third selection, and Cousins could work out against each other in Philly.
--Doug Collins hasn't announced the rest of his coaching staff, except to say former Sixer Aaron McKie, who played for Collins in Detroit, would stay on as an assistant in Philly. Collins could add fellow Iowa State alum Brian James, who was an assistant with him in Washington, and a veteran assistant in the near future.
QUOTE TO NOTE
"Thirty-season years ago, I walked into Philadelphia, a kid from Benton, Illinois, and Illinois State as the first pick in the draft of a team that was 9-73. So I'm 18 games ahead of where I started here last time." -- Sixers coach Doug Collins, on taking over the 27-55 Sixers.
