After the Sixers’ second-consecutive losing season, the franchise and general manager Sam Hinkie have a chance to fill a few holes in the upcoming 2014 NBA draft.

The Sixers wracked up 63 losses and finished with the second-worst record in the league, but the club did register the league’s fastest pace at 101.6 possessions per game, three more than the Houston Rockets. Though this did produce a league-worst 17.0 turnovers per game.

After Hinkie’s first draft that saw him deal away Jrue Holiday and bring in Michael Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel in the first round, the expectations are high for another historic draft. Specifically, this could be a draft that could change the face of the franchise.

It’s safe to say that Philly’s fanbase deserves a pick-me-up.

Above are the Daily News’ expected top-10 picks of the upcoming draft based on college players and how they fit with the Sixers organization, including where they fit within the team based on the club’s current needs.
