Before heading to Brooklyn for the Sixers' most important draft day in a decade, I decided to compile a wish list of potential picks for the Sixers.

These are 10 players that I rationally, or irrationally, would like to see the Sixers select in the draft.

Obviously, they can't all be picked, but adding a few could really help the franchise moving forward.

1. Andrew Wiggins, SG, Kansas – Elite athleticism, sky-high potential.

2. Noah Vonleh, F, Indiana – Nice skill set, could be a nice fit in the Sixers’ system.

3. James Young, SG, Kentucky – Could stretch the floor and provide the Sixers with another offensive option.

4. Rodney Hood, SF, Duke – Great size and a solid stroke.

5. T.J. Warren, F, N.C. State – Flat-out scorer; those are always good to have.

6. Adreian Payne, PF, Michigan St. – Could provide the Sixers with some frontcourt bulk and depth.

7. P.J. Hairston, G, Texas Legends – NBA-ready, solid shooter would could be a scorer for the Sixers.

8. Glen Robinson III, SF, Michigan – The Sixers already had Jr., so they might as well grab the III.

9. DeAndre Daniels, SF, UConn – Athletic shooter. He could be a value pick in the second round.

10. Lamar Patterson, SG, Pitt – Some Pitt-bias with this one. Patterson has a solid offensive skill set, might make a decent role player.
