The Sixers will be looking at 6-6 swingmen and off-the-radar big men when they hold a pre-draft workout today at Saint Joe’s Hagan Arena.

There will be one familiar name: Villanova junior shooting guard Dominic Cheek. He will be joined by other 6-6’s Alex Young (IUPUI) and Kim English (Missouri).

The bigs are Renardo Sidney (6-10, 300), a junior who’s had a checkered past at Mississippi State; and Lithuanian Mindaugas Kupsas (7-0, 257), a 20-year-old who shows potential around the basket.
