NBA Draft 2011: Top 10 Players on the Radar for the Philadelphia 76ers

The Sixers' season has come to end, but there is still more on the way, specifically the NBA draft. This year 76ers">Philadelphia holds the 16th and 50th overall picks in the draft.

The draft is probably the most important event for coach, GM and owner. These picks are players for the future and you have to look hard for the right one. It seems easy, but it is certainly not.

We've all seen the busts come and go like Marvin Williams, Darko Milicic, Adam Morrison, etc. But these guys were incredible and had so much upside entering the draft. So why did they not develop in the NBA when they were great in college or overseas?

Well, none of us may know the real reason, but there are just some players where talent doesn't translate into the NBA. 

Basically, no matter how good a player is coming into the draft, or how much guarantee there is for someone, a team is always taking a risk.

The Sixers played a great season and made a huge turnaround, but now they have to improve on that and get even better. The lineup has some loopholes now and for the future, but the improvements start in the draft.
