Sixers to work out Duke forward Brandon Ingram on Monday


The Sixers on Monday will host Duke forward and projected top-two pick Brandon Ingram for an individual workout at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.

It will be the second time the Sixers will see Ingram work out, but the first time they host him. The Sixers reportedly attended a workout in New York on May 24 held by Ingram's agency, Excel Sports Management, where they saw the 6-foot-9 forward work out.

Ingram, who turns 19 in September and is the youngest player in the draft, averaged 17.3 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 34.6 minutes in his only season at Duke. His high school coach, Perry Tyndall, recently told that Ingram is "not close to reaching his ceiling."

While the Sixers are reportedly "leaning heavily" toward drafting Ben Simmons with the No. 1 pick, Ingram could sway the team's opinion before the draft on June 23.

Stay tuned.
