The 76ers have moved up their scheduled workout with Temple guard Khalif Wyatt. The 6-foot-4, 205-pounder will partake in pre-draft drills at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine on Saturday. The Sixers were originally scheduled to work out the Norristown native on June 20.

The franchise has a first-round pick (11th overall) and two second-round selections (35th and 42d) in the June 27 draft. Wyatt is projected to go undrafted, but could end up a second-round pick.

He is both the Big Five and Atlantic Ten Conference player of the year. Wyatt was also named honorable-mention all-American and  was an all-district selection by both the USBWA and NABC.

The 22-year-old averaged a Big Five  leading 20.5 points and scored 30 or more points on seven occasions this season. He concluded his Temple career with back-to-back 31-point performances in the second and third round of the NCAA tournament.
