Sixers hoping for some Flyers' luck


The Sixers are hoping for a little of the good fortune that the Flyers have had this spring.

Among the good luck items making the trip to Secaucus for tonight's NBA draft lottery is a stick used by Flyers defenseman Lukas Krajicek during the Flyers' amazing Game 7 victory over Boston on Friday night.

Jrue Holliday, who will represent the Sixers on the podium tonight, also will have a bracelet from a young Sixers fan named Reg Burke, who won a contest for good luck charms on the team Web site. Burke gave the bracelet to Holiday this morning before the Sixers' contingent headed to Jersey.

The Sixers sit in the sixth position and have a 5.3 percent chance of getting the No. 1 pick. The Sixers can select in any of the top three spots, and anywhere from No. 6 to No. 9.
