The Philadelphia 76ers may lose JaKarr Sampson for nothing.

The team cut Sampson to make room for Joel Anthony in a trade call last week that also netted the 76ers a second round pick. The plan, according to general manager Sam Hinkie, was to hopefully bring Sampson back to the team after a roster spot was opened up.

That won't be happening as the Denver Nuggets are expected to sign him to a two year contract, according to a report.

The trade involving Anthony hasn't gone through yet due to a failed physical and both teams have until Monday night to complete the trade or else it will be rescinded.

Sampson, 22, spent close to two seasons in Philadelphia and finishes with 5.2 points per game and averaged just over 15 minutes per game.

Sampson cleared waivers last weekend which allowed him to sign with any team.
