Paranhos, 21, is a big time, raw talent. He stands 6'8" and 241 lbs. with good ball-handling skills and the ability to step back and hit the three-pointer. He has range and skill sets that have some in Brazil comparing him to the poor man's LeBron James.
With two picks in the second round, it is expected that the 76ers will be working out a bevy of players between now and Thursday night's draft. Could the Sixers go Brazilian on Thursday night and draft two Brazilian big men, Lucas Nogueira in the first round and Paranhos in the second? It is not out of the question.
