PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia 76ers have selected international prospect Luka Mitrovic with the 60th pick of the draft.

Mitrovic was the last of five second-round picks held by the Sixers. The Sixers drafted international prospect Willy Hernangomez with the 35th pick, took Bowling Green forward Richaun Holmes, international prospect Arturas Gudaitis with the 47th overall pick and North Carolina forward J.P. Tokoto at 58.

The Sixers selected Duke center Jahlil Okafor with the third pick.

Philadelphia's first four picks were all centers/power forwards and all were at least 6-foot-10.

Hernangomez wasn't sticking in Philly. A New York Knicks official says the team has acquired draft rights Hernangomez for two future second round picks.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday night because the trade had not been finalized by the NBA.
