Chad Ford has Javon McCrea to 76ers in Updated Mock Draft


According to Chad Ford's latest mock draft published today on (unfortunately an Insider article), the 2014 NBA Draft on Thursday may get a little MAC flavor. Ford has Buffalo Forward Javon McCrea going 54th overall to the Philadelphia 76ers. In the mock Ford gives McCrea some great reviews, even calling him sleeper pick in the draft. McCrea averaged 18.5 points and 9.9 rebounds per game last year for the Bulls. The 76ers need players at the forward spot and McCrea would be a great fit. Besides starter Thaddeous Young, Philadelphia didn't have a consistent forward this season. Brandon Davies and Lavoy Allen split time as backups but they were not viable options. The NBA Draft airs on ESPN Thursday night at 7:30 eastern.
