No more analysis. No more rumors. No more scouting videos. The time has come to make predictions, and here is my take on the most likely outcomes - with percentages - of what the Sixers do at the draft tonight. Could be wrong, probably will be, but only cowards and ghosts refuse to go on record, so here we go.

Also, scroll down to the bottom for my best guess at a Sixers' Big Board, going 60 deep. May be useful as a reference as tonight goes on. If it seems like at the very end I was basically pulling from ESPN and DraftExpress at near-random, it's because I totally was.

Happy Draft Day, everyone. Don't forget to have fun tonight.
