Sixers Sign Vander Blue To Partially Guaranteed Contract

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

According to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski, the Sixers have signed undrafted Marquette guard Vander Blue to a partially quaranteed contract.

According to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports, the Sixers have agreed to a partially guaranteed contract with former Marquette guard Vander Blue.

Blue averaged 14.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.8 assists during his junior season before going undrafted in the 2013 NBA draft.  Blue was fairly young for his class, having just turned 21 years old during the summer.

Blue played for the Houston Rockets summer league team in Orlando as well as the Memphis Grizzlies squad in Vegas.  Blue averaged 11 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 0.5 assists in 21.2 minutes per game with Memphis in Las Vegas.

Blue was highly recruited coming out of high school, only to struggle somewhat during his first two seasons at Marquette before breaking out during his junior year.  An incredibly athletic player, Blue started to show some ability with his jump shot during his junior year, but he still has quite a ways to go before that's a reliable part of his offensive arsenal.  He also struggles handling the ball in traffic and can become turnover prone.  I wrote a detailed scouting report on Vander Blue for DraftExpress last May.

Despite his deficiencies, Blue should have a very good chance to make the roster, or at the very least be one of the two players the Sixers end up placing down on the 87ers.  His fit with Michael Carter-Williams, Evan Turner, and Tony Wroten is questionable, obviously, at best.
