The Sixers will continue predraft workouts on Thursday, bringing in three players -- Baylor's Quincy Miller, Washington's Terrence Ross and Virginia's Mike Scott.

Miller, 6-9, 210, is leaving Baylor after one season. He initially said he was going to remain with the Bears but then changed his mind and entered the draft. He averaged 10.6 points and 4.9 rebounds in 24 minutes per game. According to reports, he struggled as a defender and with his jumpshot as a freshman. He is projected as a late first-round pick

Ross, a 6-6 shooting guard who was All-Pac 12, left Washington after two seasons. He averaged 16.4 points and 6.4 rebounds in 31.1 minutes per game for the Huskies. Scouts compare him to former Temple star Eddie Jones. He is projected as a late lottery pick.

Scott, a 6-9, 242-pound power forward was named All-ACC after averaging 18 points and 8.3 rebounds. He shot 56.3 percent from the field. Scott's stock has been rising, but he is projected as a mid to late second round.
