Philadelphia 76ers roster: 15 Best NBA Draft Robberies in franchise history

Founded in 1946, the Syracuse Nationals, now the Philadelphia 76ers roster, has been developing prospects for more than half a century. The Sixers have more historical relevance than most franchises, including three championship banners in 73 years of existence.

The NBA Draft in the main talent channel for the most successful franchises. Even if stars are not recruited, it is almost impossible to complete a list without solid draft selections. The story sheds a positive light on the Sixers' summary.

While there are highlights at the top: Allen Iverson, Ben Simmons, Doug Collins, Philadelphia has also made a draft well out of number one. Some of the best players in the history of the franchise were less announced prospects.

As the 2019 NBA Draft approaches, it's worth looking back. Revisiting the NBA Draft of the Sixers is summarized in a search for thefts: hidden gems that exceeded expectations. Then, with five selections in the June 20 file, Philadelphia has the opportunity to add another name to the list later this week.

The rules are simple. "Stealing" is a loose term when applied to the draft, so the ratings are, therefore, loose. The only stipulation that I will include is this: There is no better general election. That excludes Iverson, Simmons, and Collins. Those that were promoted as great potentials of all time.

A special weight is awarded to the best players in general, but for the purpose of this list, those who are selected later, perhaps outside the lottery or in the second round, also receive more credit. Reach a Hall of Famer in the mid-30s, for
