The Philadlephia 76ers announced that they have signed Isaiah Miles. Miles played college ball at Philadelphia’s own St. Joseph’s University and he played in the 2017 and 2018 NBA Summer League with the Sixers. From the Sixers’ press release:
PHILADELPHIA – AUG. 8, 2019 – Philadelphia 76ers General Manager Elton Brand announced today that the team has signed Isaiah Miles. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Last season, Miles played for Limoges CSP, a French team competing in Pro A, the top professional league in the country. In 50 games (33 starts), Miles tallied 9.6 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 22.9 minutes per game. Known as a threat from three-point range, Miles shot .414 from beyond the arc on 3.7 attempts per game. He has also played professionally for Uşak Sportif (Turkey) and JDA Dijon Basket (France).
Miles appeared in four games last month for Orlando in MGM Resorts NBA Summer League 2019 and previously played for Philadelphia in summer league competition in both 2017 and 2018.
A four-year standout at Saint Joseph’s in Philadelphia, Miles was the Hawks’ leading scorer and rebounder as a senior, notching 18.1 points and 8.1 boards per contest. The Baltimore native helped lead the team to a 28-8 record and a No. 8 seed in the 2016 NCAA Tournament where they reached the second round.
Miles can shoot the three and has solid size, but I can’t say I’m very familiar with his game. In any case, this is the sort of deal you make to get bodies in for training camp. But maybe the Sixers enlist Miles’ services for the G-League squad once his Exhibit 10 deal expires.
