Lawson was Sixers second choice

If Jrue Holiday didn't fall to the Sixers at No. 17 Thursday, the team would have made a choice between North Carolina's Ty Lawson and Wake Forest's Jeff Teague, according to GM Ed Stefanski on Daily News Live.

Lawson went No. 18 to Minnesota and was subsequently shipped to Denver, and Teague went No. 19 to Atlanta.

Phil Jasner reports that the Sixers also tried to acquire a relatively early second-round pick to get Kentucky shooting guard Jodie Meeks. The 6-4 Meeks went No. 41 to Milwaukee.
