Khalif Wyatt Signs With Sixers

Temple grad Khalif Wyatt went undrafted in June, but that won’t keep him out of the League next year. The guard has reportedly inked a deal with the player-needy Sixers. Per Philly.com: Khalif Wyatt will become a 76er. The undrafted rookie free agent out of Temple agreed to terms Thursday night to play for his hometown team. He will sign a partially guaranteed, mutli-year contract on Friday. The guard will be on the team’s roster when it opens the season against the Miami Heat on Oct. 30.  But there’s a chance Wyatt could spend a portion of this season with the Delaware 87ers, the Sixers NBA Development League affiliate. The Norristown native could fill a void on a Sixers squad in desperate need of a long-range shooter. The 6-foot-4, slimmed-down 205-pounder was a standout one the Sixers’ Orlando Pro Summer League team.”

    The Sixers are going to be terrible this season. I’d be shocked if they got 20 wins. Wyatt should get decent a shot to contribute, seeing as the Sixers backcourt rotation features 2 really poor shooters.

    undrafted to Multi year contract….

    20 wins? Damn man, thats harsh. They have plenty of young talent and I’d be very surprised if they finished the season with a worse record than the Bobcats,

    I’d love it if they got less than 20 wins. Better chances to land Wiggins.

    I think they should have given Ramon Galloway out of La Salle a chance instead of Wyatt…Galloway is going to be the better player with time, he’s like Lou Williams 2.0

    I’m blown away by Wyatt’s scoring stats…his scoring was better that Turner and Young’s college stats…I see a quick starting 5 with Wyatt, Carter-Williams, Turner, Young and Hawes are starters….and if Noel gets healthy the team can go for Wyatt, Carter-Williams, Young, Noel and Hawes to start.
