The Philadelphia 76ers will sign free agent wing Ryan Broekhoff, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports. Broekhoff was released by the Dallas Mavericks in February.
While Broekhoff’s tenure in Texas came to a premature end when the club seized the opportunity to sign buyout season scoop Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, his greatest skill – shooting – should translate well for the Sixers franchise.
The 29-year-old Aussie established himself as a prolific deep threat, having shot .402 from beyond the arc over the course of his two years with the Mavericks.
In order to accommodate Broekhoff, the Sixers would need to sign him to a two-way deal or release one of the 15 players currently on standard contracts.
It’s also possible that a player on the squad is expected to opt out of the Disney World games, in which case Broekhoff could slot in as a replacement player.
