Twitter Web Client : All three players - Smith, Shamet, Milton - whom the Sixers drafted also were brought in for workouts. Brown suggested there are certain types of evaluations that give you confidence when you see, meet player in person.

"Just one layer, but for me it helps."

Twitter Web Client : Revisiting star-hunting comment, Brown said that timeline is now.

"Tonight was not easy. You centered at home plate about what is my job, and what is process we have to go to to get to where we want to be. The time is now."

Twitter Web Client : Brown on tonight's picks:

"I feel tremendously proud that the type of people we brought in are our type of people.

"We know what we want, what we stand for, we know how we want to play."

Twitter Web Client : Brown described war room as "collaborative, systematic process."

Credits team-like effort from front office and lots of prep work that allowed top decision-makers to act on the fly.

Twitter Web Client : From Zhaire Smith's press conference at Barclays Center:

"It's a blessing to end up with the Sixers. They run in transition, I feel I can be part of that."

Thinks he could be paired well with Ben Simmons.

iPhone : Brown on Zhaire Smith:

β€œWe’re excited. The City of Philadelphia is going to love him. He is bred for the City of Philadelphia.”

Love toughness, athleticism. See upward trends that will be β€œjust fine” in relation to shot.

Could be 3andD who can create his shot.

iPhone : Brown acknowledges painful emotions associated with trade, but that Sixers are β€œstar-hunting,” and pick could help bring a star. twitter.com/brianseltzer/s…

iPhone : Brett Brown describing decision-making involving trade.

Said what always rules the day is what is best for organization, how do you win a championship?

Thinks future pick could be link to title given its value, and that Zhaire Smith was 1B on draft board.

iPhone : Gotta be honest, and dont know if anyone else felt same way - 3 weeks ago, it was tough for me to begin to get into draft stuff, probably b/c playoff excitement was still fresh.

But here we are tonight, & Im pumped. First great chance of off-season to add another key piece.
