Sixers Send Arnett Moultrie to Sevens
The Philadelphia 76ers today announced that they have assigned forward Arnett Moultrie to the Delaware 87ers of the NBA Development League.
Moultrie will receive additional on-court time at game speed with the Sevens as a step in his return to the Sixers.
On Monday, Moultrie said he's "sick of all the excuses" about not playing and added that his ankle and conditioning are not reasons for why he hasn't made his debut yet.
When Moultrie got 18.0 minutes per night over the final nine games of last season, he averaged 6.3 points and 4.8 rebounds while shooting 71.1 percent from the field. While he spent most of his rookie year buried on the bench, the high-energy forward flashed when given opportunities. Over the final five games, he averaged 9.4 points and 7.0 rebounds despite playing just 23.3 minutes a night.
The Sixers also announced they have assigned guard Lorenzo Brown to the Sevens.
For Brown, it marks his sixth assignment to the Sevens this season. He has appeared in 11 D-League games, averaging 19 points, seven assists and five rebounds. Brown has also played in 19 games for the Sixers this season.
