The Sixers selected Florida forward Marreese Speights with the 16th overall pick in the first round of the NBA draft.

Speights was the sixth forward taken in the draft. He worked out with the Sixers on June 19.

"He can score around the basket with both hands," Sixers assistant GM Tony DiLeo said then. "He can step outside and shoot the jump shot. He's a work in progress, but a talented player."

He averaged 14.5 points and 8.1 rebounds last season, his sophomore year, while shooting better than 62 percent from the field.

Think the 76ers might have wanted Thopson instead?
