According to ESPN's Chad Ford, via Twitter, NBA prospects Andrew Wiggins and Dante Exum will work out for the Sixers next week.

Ford does not specify where the workouts will take place.

The Sixers hold the third and 10th picks in the first round of the June 26 draft.

As a freshman this past year at Kansas, the 6-foot-8 Wiggins, who is expected to be one of the top-three picks, averaged 17.1 points per game and 5.9 rebounds.

Exum, a native of Australia, is more of an unknown (see breakdown of Exum). He is just 18 years old, 6-foot-6 and last played for the Australian Institute of Sport. Since February, he has been working out with personal coaches and trainers in Los Angeles.

Exum made a splash at the FIBA U-19 Championships last summer when he averaged 18.2 points per game in nine appearances.

Exum is considered a top-five selection.

Also, according to a report by the Daily News, the Sixers will work out former Providence guard Bryce Cotton on June 13, and according to a report by NJ.com, former North Carolina guard P.J. Hairston on June 11.
