Sixers Announce Summer League Roster Headlined by Bassey, Joe, Reed
The Philadelphia Sixers released their 17-man Summer League 2022 minicamp roster Friday morning
Charles Bassey, Isaiah Joe, Trevelin Queen, Paul Reed, and Jaden Springer headline the squad which will play in Utah starting on Tuesday.
Bassey averaged 18.9 points, 10.2 rebounds, and a league-best 3.4 blocks, leading Delaware to an appearance in the G League Finals.
He will play alongside Joe and Reed, who both played a career-high amount of games at the NBA Level and will ook to crack the regular rotation in 2022-23.
Last year's first-round pick, Springer, averaged 14.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in 19 G League games. As for Queen, who is the reigning G League MVP, he finished fifth in scoring at 25.3 points per game, while leading the G League in steals with an average of 3.2 in 35.0 minutes per game.
This should be an interesting summer league for guys like Joe, Reed, and Bassey with all three candidates to crack the regual NBA rotation this season. Reed and Bassey could be battling for the backup center minutes behind Joel Embiid, a role Reed had in the playoffs last season. Joe could come off the bench and give the team some more shooting, serving as an upgrade to Furkan Korkmaz.
The Sixers did not have a draft pick this year to add to the summer league roster.
76ers Skill Development Coach Tyler Lashbrook will be the head coach in Salt Lake City and Dwayne Jones will be in Las Vegas.
All 30 NBA teams will play five games this summer.
Philadelphia’s first game in Las Vegas is set for Tuesday against the Memphis Grizzlies at the Vivint Arena starting at 7 p.m.
The Sixers will also have games with the Utah Jazz and the Oklahoma City Thunder in Salt Lake City. They will open the Vegas summer league schedule on July 9 against the Toronto Raptors, followed by the Brooklyn Nets, Miami Heat, and Denver Nuggets.
