Sixers Filling Out Summer League Rosters

New, comments

It appears Philly has already struck deals with a number of undrafted players and young prospects.

Even when the Annual Sam Hinkie Invitational Second Round draws to a close, the scramble for young talent drags on. Last night, the Sixers reached agreements with several players to join them in either Las Vegas, Utah or both for Summer League action.

Vince Hunter

Hunter, a 6-foot-8 power forward out of UTEP, was DraftExpress' 56th ranked prospect and 15th among fours. He worked out for Philly on May 8th and May 21st, according to the draft workout chart put together by Jake Pavorsky and Jake Fischer.

TJ McConnell, Arizona

The Sixers are clearly fond of McConnell if they were willing to put any amount of guaranteed money on the table. That's not by any means a guarantee that he makes the team, but with the roster wearing thin of ball-handlers - only Wroten and Canaan (team option) are under contract - he could be a decent bet to find a niche here.

At 6-foot-2, McConnell was a cog in the Wildcats' defensive machine this past season in Tucson. He nabbed 2.2 steals per game in just over 30 minutes per night/

Jamal Jones

Jones left Texas A&M in 2014 with a year of college eligibility remaining to put his name in the D-League draft, where he was taken by the Sevens. Charania reported back in May that Jones was talking with the Sixers about a potential domestic draft-and-stash. The 6-foot-9 product played 21 minutes per game in 46 appearances for Delaware this past season, shooting 33.6 percent from distance.

Arturas Gudaitis

The Sixers took Gudaitis at No. 47 last night, and although it sounds like he won't be donning the beautiful new PHILA wordmark anytime soon, it sounds like he could be making a summer league appearance. He's a mobile 6-foot-10 center from Zalgiris in the Lithuanian league.

KT Harrell

The Rockets stole Montrezl at No. 32 along with our hearts (similar to the 12 other delightful prospects I was anxiously waiting for the Sixers to trade up for) but KT was the second-highest ranked Harrell on the board, per DraftExpress. KT's a 6-foot-6, high-volume shooting guard - at Auburn this past season, he converted on 43 percent of his shots from deep on 6.4 attempts per game.

Harrell's agent, Roger Montgomery, confirmed to Liberty Ballers that KT would be with the Sixers in Las Vegas

UPDATE (10:11 p.m.): Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders writes that Ohio State guard Sam Thompson will be joining the Sixers for summer league. Well known for his high-flying abilities, Thompson also happens to be a former high school teammate of Jahlil Okafor.
