Happy Tuesday, 'Nova Nation! Apologies for the lack of the Arizin yesterday. Just not a lot in the news over the weekend and we decided to take a day off. We're back today with plenty of coverage of Ryan Arcidiacono's workout with the 76ers, who seem impressed by him.
The Sixers don't have a pick in the second round - some mocks have Arch getting drafted late - but he's really just out to make it with any team. And he's feeling pretty good about his chances of getting drafted. If he's getting good vibes from a few teams, at the very worst he'll likely end up in the Summer League.
And now, the "news."
