Sixers Reportedly Sign Malcolm Lee

New, comments

Lee, who fits the Sixers stereotype, should provide competition for other youngsters on the wings.

Malcolm Lee played limited minutes in two seasons with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Across 35 career games, he's averaged just under 4 points per game.

Just like many other Sixers acquisitions, he fits the stereotype of a young athlete who has at once point faced injury problems and, if in life-threatening danger, could not hit a jump shot to save himself. But he's still 24, and has NBA experience at a position where the Sixers are frighteningly thin. Seriously, starting guard Alexey Shved might happen. His former teammate might give him a run for that spot.

Contract terms were not disclosed in the Woj tweet. At this point in the summer, it's safe to assume it's a non-guaranteed or partially guaranteed deal. When we know more, we'll give you an update.
