The Sixers are making any other small roster transfer to solidify their bench with just a little further wing intensity.
The group introduced these days that they’re signing Charlie Brown Jr. to a two-way contract, after he first of all signed on a 10-day hardship deal on Jan. 3. The Sixers additionally freeing Aaron Henry, who by no means truly controlled to search out his footing when taking part in within the Summer time League or for the principle membership.
Brown was once first in a position to face out with the Blue Coats. In 11 video games with them within the G League this season, the Philly local averaged 16.8 issues, 8.1 rebounds, 1.6 steals and nil.9 blocks, whilst capturing 40 p.c from 3 on 6.8 makes an attempt in line with sport. At 6-foot-6 with excellent duration and athleticism, Brown is the type of participant the Sixers’ wing rotation may use.
Whilst he’s simplest scored 4 issues in 34 overall mins thru his first two video games with the Sixers, Brown has made a powerful affect on protection. He’s rebounding neatly, moving his ft successfully at the ball, breaking apart passing lanes (he has 4 steals during the remaining two video games), and in most cases taking part in with lovely sharp instincts and top power throughout.
Each time the Sixers are taking part in shorthanded because of accidents or inevitable absences when avid gamers sit down out in COVID-19 well being and protection protocols, Brown must be neatly located to get some alternatives this season. And if he can get started hitting his threes and proceed offering alert, disruptive protection, possibly he can stick round.
