Philadelphia 76ers owner Josh Harris is pleased with landing the third-overall pick in the NBA Draft.

Action News caught up with Harris at Russell H. Conwell Middle School in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia on Thursday.

"Look, we've got Ben [Simmons], Joel [Embiid], Dario [Saric]. We're going to get a stud out of our number three draft pick; we'll be working really hard over the next month and then we have Bob [Robert Covington] coming over and T.J. [McConnell]. So if we can stay healthy, I'm feeling really great about next season," Harris said.

The Harris Family Charitable Foundation is helping to provide funding for after-school programs in low-income communities.
