PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Philadelphia 76ers have drafted North Carolina forward J.P. Tokoto with the 58th pick.

Tokoto was the fourth of five scheduled second-round picks held by the Sixers. The Sixers drafted international prospect Willy Hernangomez with the 35th pick, took Bowling Green forward Richaun Holmes and international prospect Arturas Gudaitis with the 47th overall pick.

The Sixers selected Duke center Jahlil Okafor with the third pick and have the 60th and final 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.
