Report: Sixers plan to keep, play Alexy Shved, Mbah a Moute
Players acquired by Philly in Thaddeus Young trade will hang around for a while.
The Bucks County Courier-Times reports that the 76ers are planning on keeping both of the players they acquired in the Thaddeus Young trade, Alexey Shved and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, and they will actually play a role on the team.
An NBA source said Shved has a chance for some minutes and that Mbah a Moute is also expected to stay, as opposed to being waived or bought out.
Shved had a terrific rookie season, but fell completely apart in the latter months of it and then was disastrous last season. He struggled on both ends. But the 76ers can take their time developing Shved since they're not going anywhere next season.
Mbah a Moute becomes the new poor veteran guy stuck on the Sixers, along with Jason Richardson. Mbah a Moute is a great defender, but so limited offensively it's hard to keep him on the floor.
Going to be a long year for Sixers fans.
