Sixers work out Luka Garza, Neemias Queta
Will the Sixers end up drafting Luka Garza? Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Sixers, who are in the market for a reserve center, worked out a pair of big men on Wednesday, according to Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer. Iowa’s Luka Garza, the two-time National Player of the Year, was in Philadelphia, along with Utah State’s Neemias Queta.

Garza, who is projected to be taken anywhere from the end of the first round to the middle of the second round, has dropped weight since the college season ended in an effort to become more mobile on defense. Queta was named Player of the Year in the Mountain West Conference and was a finalist for Naismith Defensive Player of the Year honors.

With Dwight Howard entering free agency, Pompey notes that the Sixers don’t have a reliable backup to Joel Embiid. Philadelphia holds the 28th and 50th selections in next week’s draft.
