While some of the 76ers' premier names were acquired through other means, like Julius Erving, whose contract was bought from the Nets after the ABA-NBA merger in advance of the 1976-77 season, or Moses Malone, who was acquired via sign-and-trade with the Houston Rockets after the 1982 NBA Finals, other Sixers legends were drafted by the team. Georgetown standout Allen Iverson, the first overall pick in the 1996 NBA Draft, would go on to win Rookie of the Year, and eventually the 2000-01 NBA MVP. Joel Embiid, out of Kansas, was selected third overall in 2014, named to the All-Rookie First Team in 2017, and has since received All-NBA Honors four times (and counting).
Coverage of the first round of the draft is annually televised live on both ESPN and ABC (ESPN continues coverage for the second round). Fans can now also stream the event on the NBA app for iPhone and Android.
