Prince averaged 15.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists for Baylor as a senior. The small forward made headlines during the tournament for his answer to how his team was out-rebounded by Yale.

Blossomgame already met with the Sixers for an interview at the combine (see story). The small forward averaged 18.7 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in his senior year for the Tigers.

In addition to the No. 1 pick, the Sixers also hold 24 and 26, and there always is the possibility of trading up or down in the draft.
