Sixers' D-League team picks up rights to Temple's Ramone Moore, 15 others

(Associated Press)
The 76ers' D-League affiliate, the Delaware 87ers, acquired the rights to 16 players Thursday via the D-League Expansion Draft, including one with local ties.

Temple product Ramone Moore is among the players picked up by the 87ers, who will begin their first season in the NBA's D-League this season.

Every D-League team was able to protect the rights to a dozen players and, from the unprotected players, the Sevens were allowed to pluck players. However, the Sevens were limited to two players per D-League team. And of the 16 taken by the Sevens, seven have played in the NBA.
Here are all 16 players acquired by the Sevens:
