76ers' Timothe Luwawu: Could see significant time in D-League in rookie year
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Sixers coach Brett Brown recently suggested that Luwawu could spend significant time in the D-League as a rookie, Sixers.com's Brian Seltzer reports. "I feel for the first time we are truly going to tap into our D-League program. It certainly makes sense to use the D-League that's 45 minutes down the road to get him playing," Brown said of Luwawu. "You can do all the drill work you want -- it doesn't equal playing against bodies and feeling other players. I think you're going to see him in the D-League from time to time, but I also feel like the excitement we saw from the summer league shows that that's an excellent prospect."

After Luwawu was nabbed with the 24th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, it wasn't certain if he would join the 76ers in 2016-17 or spend another year overseas to hone his craft. His decision to sign a contract with the 76ers earlier this month ended that mystery, and the 21-year-old went on to suit up in eight summer league games for the club, averaging 8.9 points and 3.0 rebounds in 23.5 minutes per contest. As is common with younger prospects, Luwawu struggled with his efficiency, shooting just under 37 percent from the field, but that performance didn't change the 76ers' long-term outlook on him. The athletic Frenchman fits the mold of a "three-and-D" wing that most NBA teams covet, though it may take a few more years for Luwawu to fully realize his potential. In the meantime, the Sixers will lean on veterans Gerald Henderson, Robert Covington, Hollis Thompson and Nik Stauskas to cover most of the duties at either wing spot during the coming season, allowing Luwawu to pick up plenty of minutes in the D-League, which would certainly aid his development.

76ers' Anthony Barber: Signs partially guaranteed deal with 76ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barber agreed to a partially guaranteed contract with the 76ers on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

The former NC State guard latched on with the Pelicans for the Las Vegas summer league and appeared in four games, averaging 6.2 points and 1.2 rebounds over 11.8 minutes per game. He was able to parlay that performance into a partially guaranteed deal with Philadelphia, but that by no means suggests he's a lock to make the Opening Night roster.

76ers' Jerami Grant: Performs well in two summer league games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Grant concluded his two game Utah Summer League stint with 10.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game.

Grant emerged as one of Philadelphia's most dependable offensive assets last season. His shortened summer league appearance likely indicates that Philadelphia knows he has little to prove at that level. Grant is one year removed from averaging 9.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per contest with the 76ers. Last season, Philadelphia possessed 10 players who each netted eight or more points per game. When you factor Ben Simmons into that equation it generates the notion that something has to give. Grant has proven he can succeed at the professional level, but with a clustered rotation only time will tell if his production takes a backseat.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Dominates summer league play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons tallied 10.8 points, 7.7 rebounds and 5.5 assists per game in six Utah and Las Vegas Summer League games while earning a spot on the All-NBA Las Vegas Summer League First Team.

Simmons received a fair amount of criticism for opting to sit out of a summer league game due to rest. However, it's quite clear that the top pick from June's draft is miles ahead of summer league competition. This past season, Simmons averaged 19.2 points, 11.8 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game at LSU. Something about his game seems effortless, and while he is likely to be scrutinized to the core throughout the upcoming 2016-17 season, he's also likely to step in and fill up the stat sheet. There could be a small adjustment period for the Australian-native, but it's safe to anticipate Simmons putting up solid numbers throughout his rookie campaign.

76ers' Brandon Paul: Signs deal with Sixers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paul signed a partially guaranteed contract with the Sixers on Monday, Alex Kennedy of BasketballInsiders.com reports.

Paul played well for the Sixers' summer league team, posting averages of 12.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.6 steals over the final five games. He's earned his way to a partially guaranteed contract, which means he should be with the team for training camp. However, it doesn't guarantee him a spot on the regular season roster, so he'll need to impress the coach staff even more in order to earn his way on the team. Whether he makes the roster or not, Paul is highly unlikely to see fantasy worthy minutes.
