Harkless, Thompson to workout Friday


The Sixers will continue their pre-draft evaluations of prospective draft picks on Friday, bringing in St. John’s Mo Harkless and Georgetown’s Hollis Thompson.


Harkless, a 6-8 guard/forward, was named Big East Rookie of the Year at the end of the season after averaging 15.5 points and 8.6 rebounds.  He started all 32 games last season for St. John’s and averaged a team-high 36.1 minutes per game. 

Thompson, also a 6-8 forward, is also an early entry candidate who applied for early entry last season but later withdrew his name to return to school. Thompson earned All Big East Honorable Mention in his last season after averaging 12.8 points and 5.5 rebounds for Georgetown.  He is the Hoyas all-time leader in 3-point field goal percentage (44.0 percent).

The Sixers have the 15th, 45th and 54th picks in the June 28th draft.
