Still, the Sixers' work was just getting started for the night. They had four second-round picks to make at Nos. 36, 39, 46 and 50.
Here's a look at which players the franchise went with in the second round.
Second round (36th overall): Jonah Bolden, PF, 6-10/227, Australia
The Sixers added to their frontcourt with a 6-foot-10, 227-pound power forward in Jonah Bolden.
Bolden's basketball career has taken him all over the world. Born in Melbourne, Australia, he attended high school at Findlay Prep in Las Vegas and Brewster Academy in New Hampshire.
Bolden played one year at UCLA (2015-16) and then turned pro. Last season he moved to Serbia to play for KK FMP Beograd, where he was named Adriatic League Youth Player of the Year. Dario Saric previously won that award.
Bolden averaged 12.9 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals. He shot 41.9 percent from three. Bolden has speed and can spread the floor as a big but will need to add strength to his game.
"I've always believed what I can do," Bolden said in a conference call. "I still have the utmost confidence in myself in what I can do in the league."
There is little doubt Bolden will fit in well with the Sixers. Ben Simmons immediately expressed his excitement to have Bolden on the team with this retweet. Bolden and Simmons played against one another when they were younger. Bolden's father also competed against Simmons' dad in Australia.
Second round (50th overall): Mathias Lessort, PF/C, 6-9/250, France
The Sixers landed an international big man in 6-foot-9, 250-pound Mathias Lessort. The 21-year-old can play both power forward and undersized center.
Last season, Lessort averaged 10.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.0 blocks for Nanterre of the France Pro-A League.
This could be a draft-and-stash situation, an option the Sixers have been open to, wherein Lessort remains overseas for next season.
Undrafted free agent: James Blackmon Jr., SG, 6-3/184, Indiana
After the draft, the Sixers agreed to a deal with undrafted free agent James Blackmon Jr., according to The Vertical.
Blackmon led the Hoosiers in scoring last season with 17 points per game, while connecting on 91 three-pointers and 42.3 percent of his attempts.
Undrafted free agent: Melo Trimble, PG, 6-3/192, Maryland
The Sixers have also agreed to a deal with undrafted free-agent point guard Melo Trimble, per ESPN.
Trimble, who played three years for the Terrapins, worked out for the Sixers in early June. He contemplated going pro and leaving Maryland after his sophomore season, but returned for his junior year, which he ultimately found beneficial.
"I was able to pick something up, something that I didn't have for the past two years, which was being a leader and just being able to run a team," Trimble said.
