SIXERS PROJECT TO DRAFT JA’KOBE WALTER, JONATHAN MOGBO!

By Jimmy Traub

If they keep their picks, here’s where the Sixers project in Thursday night’s draft:

16. SIXERS: Ja’Kobe Walter

June 13 Mock Draft Spot: No. 16

Team: Baylor

Position: SG/SF

Size: 6-foot-4, 198 lbs

Age/Year: 19, Freshman

Nationality: American

Pro comparison: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

He will get pegged with a safe label that sees a three-and-D 2-guard who can defend both wing positions.

The lack of creation and playmaking may make it tougher for teams to picture an upside worth a top-10 pick.

 

41. SIXERS (via Bulls): Jonathan Mogbo

Previous Mock Draft Spot: No. 41

School/team: San Francisco

Position: PF

Size: 6-foot-6, 217 lbs

Age: 22, Junior

Nationality: American

Pro comparison: Kenneth Faried

Mogbo helped his stock in Chicago, showing how he can fit without a jumper at just 6-foot-6 in socks. He plays much bigger than his measurements around the basket. But he also showed how well he can handle in the open floor and process quickly as a passer.

The tools/athleticism for scoring around the basket and playmaking ability create a unique archetype that teams will find enticing in the second round.
