Ohio State's Mullens to work out for Sixers

Sixerville: The Sixers will work out the 7-footer from Ohio State on Saturday.

Ohio State's Mullens to work out for Sixers

As alluded to in today's Daily News, the Sixers will be bringing in Ohio State 7-footer B.J. Mullens for a predraft workout on Saturday.

Mullens started two of 33 games as a freshman, averaging 8.8 points and 4.7 rebounds in 20.3 minutes. By all accounts, any team drafting him will have to wait at least a year or 2 for him to develop and mature.

Mullens will be joined by Notre Dame's Ryan Ayers, son of former Sixers coach Randy Ayers, but the focus will clearly be on Mullens.
