Sixers Announce 2016 Summer League Roster
The Sixers announced their 2016 Summer League roster on Friday.
It is a 15-man squad that consists of 11 rookies, and four players with just one year under their belt.
Those four are T.J. McConnell, James Nunnally, Richaun Holmes and Christian Wood.
McConnell had a solid rookie season after going undrafted, averaging 6.1 points per game in 19.8 minutes played per game in the 81 games he appeared in. McConnell started 17 of those games, and quickly became a favorite of Brett Brown, who praised on McConnell for his effort last season.
Wood appeared in 17 games for the 76ers during the 2015-16 season, compiling averages of 3.6 points and 2.2 rebounds on 41.5 percent shooting. Holmes ended the season with an Achillies injury, with averages 5.6 points, 2.6 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.4 steals, and 0.8 blocks in 13.8 minutes per game. Meanwhile, Nunnally signed to play with Sidigas Avellino in Italy after he broke his thumb with the Pacers during the summer league last season.
Others on the roster include two-of-the-Sixers’ three draft selections including No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot
The Sixers practice schedule for the first mini-camp in preparation for the Utah Jazz Summer League starts tomorrow and ends on Wednesday.
The team will be led in Utah by Sixers assistant coach Billy Lange and in Vegas by Lloyd Pierce.
