Best Options for Philadelphia 76ers in the First Round of 2013 NBA Draft

The disappointing saga that is the Philadelphia 76ers season can't come to an end soon enough for head coach Doug Collins. 

Is it Collins' fault for how miserable the team has played, or are the players to blame?

Sure, fans can look at the fact that Andrew Bynum may play as many games in his 76ers career as me. Fans can blame the bust that is Evan Turner. Fans can blame the front office for deciding to let Lou Williams walk in favor of a guy who goes by "Swaggy P"—referring to Nick Young for those unfamiliar. 

Whatever the case, the Sixers have to rebuild (Sixers fans must be tired of hearing this) and mold a competitive team around All-Star Jrue Holiday.

They can do so directly through the NBA Draft. By the looks of it, odds are the 76ers will have a first round pick within the top 12 (probably 10, 11 or 12 to be exact) to go along with two second-rounders—both within the top 40 overall.

While there are probably no superstars lurking in the shadows of this draft class, there are some who can make an impact shortly into their NBA career. Here are three players at different positions I think would fit well with the 76ers and who they should look into drafting come late June.
