Second round picks weren’t for sale last night so for the first time in NBA franchise history, the Philadelphia 76ers did not make a draft pick. While it was a quiet night for Sixers #EastCoastDads, the team did make some moves once the calendar flipped to June 23, first signing three players to two-way deals, then also signing Arizona State forward Marcus Bagley to an Exhibit 10 deal.

The 21-year-old Bagley is the younger brother of former second overall pick Marvin Bagley III. Standing at 6-foot-8 with a 6-foot-11 wingspan, Bagley is a bit of an unknown quantity, having only played a total of 11 games across three seasons with the Sun Devils, including just five games across the last two seasons. Last November, Bagley claimed he was suspended as a result of things he said to Arizona State head coach Bobby Hurley after a game. Publicly airing things on social media afterwards likely did not help matters.

As a reminder, Exhibit 10 deals are one-year, non-guaranteed minimum contracts with the team having the option to convert it to a two-way deal prior to the start of the regular season. These deals also feature bonuses for players if they are waived and subsequently report to the team’s G League affiliate, which would be an added incentive for the player to sign one. Most likely, we’ll see Bagley as a member of the Delaware Blue Coats in the fall, but with a small sample size to date, he’ll have Summer League and training camp to show what he’s capable of doing on the court.
