Jonah Bolden Assigned to Blue Coats
The Delaware Blue Coats, G League affiliate of the Philadelphia 76ers, had their media day on Wednesday. In correlation with that, the Sixers announced that forward Jonah Bolden will be assigned to the Blue Coats.
Bolden was selected with the 36th overall pick by the Sixers in the 2017 NBA Draft. After spending a season overseas with Maccabi Tel Aviv, Bolden signed a four-year, $7 million deal with the Sixers towards the end of July following the trade of Richaun Holmes to Phoenix.
The 22-year-old native of Australia scored his first NBA points against the Hawks on Monday and has appeared in four of the Sixers' first eight games. The Blue Coats open their season on the road against the Raptors affiliate on November 3.
