The Philadelphia 76ers interview draft prospect Tyrell Terry.

The Philadelphia 76ers are supposed to be making front office changes and performing a coaching search this offseason. Despite not completing either one of those tasks, the franchise is still interviewing draft prospects and Tyrrell Terry is one of them, according to Noah Levick of NBCSPhilly.

For some background information on Terry, he is a freshman combo guard out of Standford. Despite only being 6-foot-1 and 160 lbs, Terry was a sensation as a first-year student-athlete. This past year he averaged 14.6 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists, and 1.4 steals, while converting 40.8 percent of his 3-pointers.

It’s more than understandable that the Sixers ended up interviewing him considering how he would fill a need the club has as a sharpshooting playmaker.

Per Levick, the draft prospect had “…great communication…” with the 76ers. Obviously, that’s great to hear despite the team’s front office being all out of sorts. It should be noted that according to Ian Begley of SNY, Terry has interviewed with a handful of teams and not just Philly.

One of the questions asked of Terry during the interview was apparently how he would fit along with the Sixers’ two stars in Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, according to Ky Carlin of the Sixers Wire. For those curious, he stated he would be able to fit in with the duo just fine, per Carlin.

If fans needed any other reason to get excited about this young prospect, it should be noted that he’s been studying film of players like Trae Young and Chris Paul to help improve his decision-making skills, per Carlin.

It’s hard to understand the order of which the Philadelphia 76ers are doing things this offseason, but what’s not hard to understand is why it’s easy to get excited about a prospect like Terry.
