76ers' Kris Humphries: Will join 76ers on non-guaranteed deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Humphries is planning to sign a non-guaranteed deal with the 76ers, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.

Humphries will have a chance to make the final roster, provided he's up to par during training camp. He's bounced around the league as of late, landing in Atlanta last season -- his fifth team since 2012-13. Last year, he averaged 4.6 points and 3.7 boards across 12.3 minutes per game while shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc -- an area he's worked to improve over the past two seasons. Even if he makes the team, it's doubtful he'll garner a bigger workload than in 2016-17, making him avoidable in the vast majority of fantasy formats.

76ers' Jacob Pullen: Signs deal with 76ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pullen agreed to a contract with the 76ers on Friday, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia reports.

The deal is likely a training camp invite, as it seems doubtful that Pullen would be signed to a guaranteed deal considering his lack of NBA pedigree. Since graduating from Kansas State back in 2011, where he averaged 20.2 points, 3.7 assists and 1.6 steals, Pullen has been playing professionally overseas. During his 17-game Eurocup stint last year, he posted 10.3 points, 2.5 assists and 1.1 steals across 17.9 minutes per contest.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Will take part in training camp, could be limited
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sixers GM Brian Colangelo said Wednesday that Embiid (knee) will participate when the Sixers open training camp next week, though it's unclear if he'll be fully cleared, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.

The news surrounding Embiid, who's working back from surgery to repair a torn meniscus, has been mostly positive, though the Sixers have remained hyper-conservative, in their own words, throughout the recovery process. Colangelo went on to say that Embiid "will be out there for the first game" but also noted that it's possible he could face a minutes restriction, as was the case last season. While that could ultimately be what's best for Embiid's long-term health, a minutes restriction would almost certainly hamper his fantasy value, which is already rather volatile given his injury history.

76ers' Dario Saric: Expected to come off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brett Brown implied Wednesday that Saric would come off the bench to begin the season, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

While Brown did not explicitly lock in a starting five, he all but solidified that the team will begin the year with a lineup of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Robert Covington, J.J. Redick and Markelle Fultz. The decision doesn't come as a huge surprise, though there was some debate as to whether the Sixers would go with Saric or Covington at small forward. A far superior defender, Covington figures to start and end most games, per Brown, though Saric still projects to hold a significant role off the bench. The Rookie of the Year runner-up appeared in 81 games last season and compiled averages of 12.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game, while shooting 41.1 percent from the field and 31.1 percent from three. Given the additions of Simmons and Fultz, Saric may do less playmaking this season, though Brown will undoubtedly find ways to integrate his passing ability into the offense.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Impressing in offseason workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Brett Brown said Wednesday that Simmons is "dominating the gym" during 5-on-5 offseason workouts, Brian Seltzer of Sixers.com reports.

There's a good chance this is simply a coach propping up his player, but it's nonetheless encouraging to hear after a foot injury kept Simmons out of the entirety of what would have been his rookie season. The Sixers reportedly plan to use Simmons at multiple positions, including point guard, but it appears he'll begin games as the nominal power forward, and that's the position he'll most often defend. "I think he has a chance to be a multi-position elite defensive player," Brown said. "It's jaw-dropping how he covers ground"
