From the early stages of the pre-draft process, general manager Elton Brand and the Sixers were clear about their desire to target "mature" players.
They got one late in the second round shortly after midnight Friday morning in 23-year-old Marial Shayok with the 54th pick.
After spending three seasons at Virginia, Shayok transferred to Iowa State, where he averaged 18.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game as a redshirt senior.
Shayok measured in at 6-foot-5.5 inches at the combine, with a wingspan slightly over 7 feet.
The Ottawa, Ontario, native is a well-rounded wing who made 38.6 percent of his three-point shots at Iowa State. He played well in the portion of his pre-draft workout open to the media on May 20.
