CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) — Matisse Thybulle never worked out for an NBA team like so many first-round prospects. The 76ers told Thybulle early in the draft process they were interested — and on draft night, they made their move.

The Sixers landed Thybulle as the latest piece to a franchise making a serious push toward an NBA title. Thybulle, 6-foot-5, 200 pounds, was a four-year player for the Huskies and was the 2018-19 Naismith Defensive Player of the Year. He's considered one of the best defensive players in the draft and earned the nickname "The Disruptor" as the only player in Pac-12 history with two 100-steal seasons.

"Defense translates For me, defense means effort," Thybulle said.

The Sixers sent the 24th and 33rd overall picks of the draft to Boston so the Celtics could take Thybulle for them with the 20th pick. Two years ago, the Celtics and 76ers made another trade for a Huskies star when the Sixers moved up to the No. 1 pick to draft Markelle Fultz. That move didn't work out and Fultz was traded in February to Orlando.

Philadelphia is counting on Thybulle to contribute more than Fultz did. Thybulle was named Pac-12 men's basketball player of the year by The Associated Press after becoming the first Division I player in 20 years to have 100 steals and 70 blocked shots in a season. Thybulle was the Huskies' fourth-leading scorer at 9.2 points per game, but dominated at the top of their disruptive zone, using his long arms to block shots and reach into passing lanes. He led the nation with 3.50 steals per game.

He could turn out to be one of the surprises of the draft — even if he has plenty to learn about the Sixers.

"I don't know much other than they're a talented group with great coaching," he said.

The Sixers went 51-31 under coach Brett Brown and were...
