The 76ers won their first (and only) game of the summer league tonight, beating the Brooklyn Nets (0-5) 89-86 to finish off the Orlando Summer League, although most were not able to watch the game as it was only broadcast on NBA League Pass Broadband.

Temple's Khalif Wyatt controlled the game for the Sixers, finishing with 27 points in only 18 minutes off the bench, shooting 6-9 from the field, making 12 of his 14 free throw attempts and shooting 3-4 from three point range. He also added 4 assists.

Wyatt was joined by Michael Carter-Williams (11 points), Jrue Justin Holiday (11 points), Arnett Moultrie (10 points) and Rodney Williams (13 points) in double figures.

The 76ers first round pick, MIchael Carter-Williams, finished off the summer league shooting only 27% from the floor and 18.8% from three point range. In all, it took him 85 field goal attempts to score his 68 points. Carter-Williams was among the league leaders in assists, ending the summer league at 6.8 assists per game, but he also added in 4.8 turnovers per game as well.

Whether Khalif Wyatt's two monster games (he also scored 25 points on 11-18 shooting earlier in the week against Indiana) will be enough to earn him a contract on the 76ers, or any other team, remains to be seen. Wyatt ended summer league action averaging 13.8 points per game on 45.8% from the field, while going 19-25 from the free throw line.

Besides Carter-Williams, Arsalan Kazemi, and Arnett Moultrie who are under contract, and aside from Wyatt, who was already mentioned, Rodney Williams, Justin Holiday, Travis Leslie, James Southerland and Micheal Eric all have some chance of making the roster.
