  • 76ers' Charles Bassey: Provides best effort of season

    Bassey produced 12 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, three blocks and one steal across 19 minutes during Thursday's 103-89 victory over the Nuggets.

    The 76ers have been without Joel Embiid (COVID-19) for the past six games, but Bassey still hadn't been used much prior to Wednesday. Coming into the contest, the rookie had played only 25 minutes all season, but he looked great in the 19-minute performance versus the Nuggets. The strong performance could lead to additional opportunities for Bassey, especially with Embiid not expected to return during the current road trip.

  • 76ers' Charles Bassey: Should be available Thursday

    Bassey is not listed on the injury report ahead of Thursday's preseason game against the Raptors.

    A visa issue prevented Bassey from playing in Monday's opener at Toronto, but with the Sixers back in the United States, the rookie should be available to make his debut.

  • 76ers' Charles Bassey: Unavailable Monday

    Bassey will not be availble for Monday's preseason game at Toronto due to a visa issue, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.

    With the game being played across the border in Canada, Bassey will not travel with the team while the issue is sorted out. The Sixers have downplayed the matter and expect it to be an isolated incident. With that in mind, Bassey will likely make his Sixers debut when the teams meet for a rematch in Philadelphia on Thursday. The 53rd overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft did not play in Summer League, as he had not agreed to a contact with the Sixers at the time.

  • 76ers' Charles Bassey: Signs three-year rookie deal

    The Sixers signed Bassey to a three-year rookie deal Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Bassey was the 53rd overall pick in the 2021 NBA Draft. The 6-foot-11 center averaged 17.6 points and 11.6 rebounds across 28 starts during his final collegiate season at Western Kentucky. He will likely be firming planted behind Joel Embiid and Dwight Howard on the depth chart, but he should garner valuable lessons from the veteran duo.
