Philadelphia 76ers Player News: All Positions

News: Miles has agreed to a contract with the 76ers.
Impact: The terms of the deal were not initially released, but it's likely a training camp contract. Last season, Miles played in France for Limoges CSP, averaging 9.6 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 22.9 minutes. Notably, he shot 41.4 percent from distance on 3.7 attempts per contest.
News: Burke signed a one-year contract with Philadelphia on Thursday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Burke played for the Knicks and Mavericks last season, averaging 10.9 points (43.1% FG, 35.2% 3PT, 83.1% FT) and 2.7 assists in 19.4 minutes per game across 58 total appearances. His deal with Philadelphia is a minimum contract that will pay him $1.84 million. He'll add point guard depth for a 76ers team that is thin at the position and in need of capable three point shooters.
News: Korkmaz agreed Wednesday to re-sign with the 76ers on a two-year contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Impact: The former 26th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Korkmaz has struggled to carve out a steady role with the 76ers, though it appears the organization remains intrigued by his upside, despite choosing to decline his third-year option last fall. He appeared in 48 games for Philly last season, averaging 5.8 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 14.2 minutes. The Sixers are heading into the 2019-20 campaign without a ton of wing depth, however, making it possible that Korkmaz will earn extra opportunities in his age-22 season.
News: Simmons agreed to a five-year, $170 million max contract with the Sixers on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Impact: The two sides have reportedly been working on the deal for several weeks, and the Sixers now have another core piece locked up for the foreseeable future. While Simmons has faced heavy criticism for his lack of a jumpshot, the soon-to-be-23-year-old remains one of the better all-around young players in the league, with his size and physicality presenting matchup issues for opponents. A first-time-All-Star last season, Simmons appeared in 79 games and posted averages of 16.9 points, 8.8 rebounds, 7.7 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks per contest.
News: Shayok totaled 14 points (6-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block across 17 minutes during Friday's 108-102 win over the Raptors in the consolation bracket of the Las Vegas Summer League.
Impact: With a newly-minted two-way deal, the second-round pick from Iowa State seems poised for a role in Philly's G-League squad. The Sixers will give Josh Richardson and Zhaire Smith the first shot at the two spot to begin the season, but Shayok could be called up if both guards falter.
News: Dozier finished with 22 points (8-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists and a steal across 24 minutes during Friday's 108-102 win over Toronto in the consolation bracket of the Las Vegas Summer League.
Impact: Dozier is now with his third team in his three-year NBA career. With the departure of J.J. Redick and Jimmy Butler, the Sixers could definitely use a sharpshooter and ball-handler, which is probably why the South Carolina product is getting an extended look in the Summer League.
News: Milton (ankle) will not play in the Sixers' final summer league game against the Raptors on Friday, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Milton suffered a sprained left ankle earlier in the week during a game against the Thunder, and he'll continue to be held out Friday. The next time we'll see him is potentially in the preseason.
News: Thybulle finished with 12 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, two rebounds and two steals over 22 minutes in the 76ers' loss to the Pistons in the Las Vegas Summer League on Wednesday.
Impact: Thybulle had another strong showing for Philadelphia by stuffing the stat sheet on Wednesday. His excellent defensive abilities have not been overstated, as the Washington product has racked up a combined 13 blocks/steals in four games in the Las Vegas Summer League.
News: Milton did not practice Tuesday and will not play in Wednesday's summer league game due to an ankle injury, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: Milton appears to have suffered the injury in Friday's loss to the Thunder, as he played just 12 minutes in that game. With Milton out, P.J. Dozier will likely take over as the team's starting point guard.
News: Jones mustered just five points (0-11 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT) but hauled in 16 rebounds, recorded one assist and posted two steals across 24 minutes in the 76ers' 84-81 overtime loss to the Thunder in a Las Vegas Summer League game Monday.
Impact: Jones managed to salvage his line with a team-high rebound total, helping him overcome an abysmal shooting effort. The 26-year-old finished last season playing with Spanish club Saski Baskonia in the EuroLeague, and he also has 32 games of NBA experience with the Mavericks, Pelicans and Cavaliers. Jones is looking to carve out a reserve forward role with the 76ers during the coming season.
News: Koumadje finished with 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds and four blocks across 20 minutes during the 76ers' 84-81 overtime loss to the Thunder in a Las Vegas Summer League game Monday.
Impact: The undrafted rookie from Florida State was a force off the bench, pacing the second unit in scoring while checking in second in rebounds. Koumadje has an uphill battle to latch on to a spot on the final roster this fall, but continued strong efforts in Las Vegas could well earn him additional time to make his case in training camp.
News: Thybulle managed 14 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists, three blocks and two steals across 31 minutes during the 76ers' 84-81 overtime loss to the Thunder in a Las Vegas Summer League game Monday.
Impact: The 2019 first-round pick put together his second straight double-digit scoring effort, and he also continued to showcase his signature defensive skills. Thybulle has recorded five blocks over the last two contests alone, and he's certainly providing 76ers brass and fans alike with plenty of reasons to smile during the early going in Las Vegas.
News: Smith delivered 18 points (8-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists and two steals across 35 minutes during the 76ers' 84-81 overtime loss to the Thunder in a Las Vegas Summer League game Monday.
Impact: The 2018 first-round pick continued his strong summer league performances with a team-leading scoring total, and he's now posted three straight double-digit point tallies in Las Vegas. Smith is thought to have plenty of untapped potential after having only played in six regular-season games during his rookie campaign, and he's encouragingly receiving plenty of minutes thus far in summer league play.
News: Shayok signed a two-way contract with the 76ers on Sunday.
Impact: The two-way deal will allow Shayok, the 52nd overall pick in last month's NBA draft, to spend up to 45 days with the 76ers in 2019-20 before the organization would have to convert his contract to a standard deal. The 23-year-old swingman has made a positive impressive early in the 76ers' summer-league slate, which likely influenced the organization's decision to award him one of its pair of two-way roster spots.
News: Shayok collected 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 23 minutes during Saturday's 96-82 loss to the Celtics.
Impact: Shayok has scored efficiently through the first two summer league games, as he posted 19 points (7-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in Friday's opener against the Bucks. If he continues to drain outside shots he'll likely have a chance to stick with the 76ers, as that's probably the team's biggest area of concern going forward.
News: Thybulle produced 15 points (5-12 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, two blocks, one assist, and one steal in 28 minutes during Saturday's 96-82 loss to the Celtics.
Impact: Thybulle was solid on both ends while stepping up and being more aggressive offensively (seven points on only six shot attempts in summer league opener). His ability to provide strong help defense along the wing should earn him decent minutes off the bench as a rookie so long as he's serviceable from beyond the arc.
News: Smith recorded 14 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 24 minutes during Saturday's 96-82 loss to the Celtics.
Impact: Smith has been impressive through the first two summer league tilts here this offseason, and he's likely expected to maintain a reserve role as a sophomore. Smith's willingness to let it fly from beyond the arc theoretically should improve his odds of earning more substantial minutes, as he's already a pretty well-rounded player with high-level athleticism and a good feel for the game on both ends of the floor.
News: Milton totaled 15 points (2-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 11-13 FT), seven assists, two rebounds and a steal across 26 minutes in the 76ers' 107-106 win over the Bucks in the Las Vegas Summer League on Friday.
Impact: Milton was cold from the field in this one, making just two of his 14 shot attempts. He did, however, get to the free-throw line with ease, sinking 11 shots from the charity stripe. He got his teammates involved with seven assists in the win.
News: Thybulle totaled seven points (2-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three steals, two rebounds and an assist across 24 minutes in the 76ers' 107-106 win over the Bucks in the Las Vegas Summer League on Friday.
Impact: Thybulle was selected with the No. 20 pick in this year's draft and lauded for his excellent defense as a senior at Washington. He showcased those defensive abilities in his Summer League debut with three swipes and two defensive boards.
News: Neto signed a one-year, league minimum contract with the 76ers Wednesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Impact: The 27-year old guard signed for the veteran's league minimum and will head to Philadelphia for the 2019-20 season. Neto, who averaged 5.3 points, 2.5 assists and 1.7 rebounds in 12.8 minutes per game last year, provided the Jazz with a steady hand at backup point guard during his four seasons in Utah. He's expected to fill the spot vacated by the departure of T.J. McConnell, who saw 19.3 minutes per game as the backup point guard last year.
News: Thybulle will play in summer league, Rich Hofmann of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Thybulle, the 20th pick in the 2019 draft, will play in summer league as expected. As a senior at Washington, he averaged 9.1 points, 3.5 steals, 3.1 rebounds, 2.3 blocks and 2.1 assists.
News: Smith will play during summer league, Rich Hofmann of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Smith played only six games last season, missing the vast majority of the season due to a Jones fracture in his foot, plus an allergic reaction to a food product. He'll look to get a fresh start during summer league.
News: Simmons and the 76ers have met this week and are working toward a maximum contract extension, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Impact: According to Wojnarowski, the 76ers have offered the All-Star point guard a five-year, $170 million deal, which serves as a good starting point for general manager Elton Brand and Simmons' agent, Rich Paul, to work with before the mid-October deadline to finalize the extension. Should Philadelphia come to terms on an extension for the 22-year-old, he would become the fourth player on the roster with an $100-plus million contract on the books, joining Joel Embiid (five years, $150 million), Tobias Harris (five years, $180 million) and Al Horford (four years, $109 million).
News: Milton and the 76ers agreed on a four-year contract Tuesday, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Milton saw a very limited role last year as a rookie, racking up just 268 total minutes. However, the 76ers' front office appears to have faith in the 22-year-old, and he will stick around to continue developing.
News: Ennis will re-sign with the SIxers on a two-year, $4.1 million contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Ennis finished the season with the Sixers after coming over from Houston, and according to Charania, he turned down more lucrative offers to return to Philly. Ennis has never been much of a fantasy consideration, but he's a relatively efficient scorer whose primary value lies in his defensive versatility.
News: Pelle signed a two-way contract with the 76ers on Tuesday.
Impact: Pelle is coming off an impressive 2018-19 season with the Blue Coats, averaging 10.3 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.8 blocks per game. That effort led to him being selected to the G League All-Defensive Team, and he will now be allowed to spend up to 45 days with the 76ers under his two-way contract.
News: O'Quinn agreed to a one-year contract with Philadelphia on Monday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Impact: O'Quinn is set to join the Sixers after averaging 3.5 points along with 2.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists over 45 games with the Pacers a season ago. He'll likely serve as depth off the bench in Philadelphia.
News: Richardson was shipped to the 76ers on Sunday in the Heat's sign-and-trade deal for Jimmy Butler, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Richardson, who is entering his fifth season in the league, is coming off a career year. With Goran Dragic sitting out a large chunk of the 2018-19 campaign, ballhandling responsibilities were given to Richardson. He responded with 16.6 points, 4.1 assists, 3.6 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game. In joining the reloaded Sixers, Richardson's usage could see a downtick, as he will probably end up being the third or fourth offensive option. Still, Richardson's size multi-position versatility should keep him on the court for long stretches of time, and he should continue getting better.
News: Horford and the 76ers came to terms Sunday on a four-year, $109 million contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Impact: In an unexpected move, Horford will go from one Eastern Conference contender to another after spending the last three years in Boston. He'll be an interesting fit alongside Joel Embiid, but both players are comfortable spacing the floor, and they'll form arguably the best defensive frontcourt in the NBA. With Horford heading into his age-33 season, there's a chance the contract could have negative value in its final years, but the five-time All-Star should help keep the Sixers near the top of the conference, despite losing both J.J. Redick and Jimmy Butler.
News: Scott and Philadelphia came to terms Sunday on a two-year, $9.8 million contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Scott added veteran experience off the bench for the Sixers after being traded from the Clippers in February, and he finished the year averaging 5.8 points along with 3.5 rebounds over 79 games. He figures to slot into a similar role after agreeing to remain in Philly.
News: Harris and Philadelphia came to terms Sunday on a five-year, $180 million contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Impact: Harris put up solid numbers after being traded from the Clippers to the Sixers in February, stepping in as one of his team's leading contributors. He averaged 20 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.8 assists over 82 contests this season, and he could be in line for an even bigger role during the 2019-2020 campaign if Jimmy Butler leaves for the Heat.
News: Butler is expected to inform the Heat he wishes to play for them next season once free agency officially begins, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.
Impact: Nothing is official yet, but with just a few hours before free agency gets under way the Heat appear to be the favorite to land Butler's service
News: Koumadje has agreed to a contract with the 76ers, Mark Deeks of Sky Sports NBA reports.
Impact: The 7-foot-4 center out of Florida State will attempt to make an impact in the Sixers' organization. Last season, he averaged 6.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.4 blocks across 15.5 minutes.
News: Shayok was selected by the 76ers with the 54th overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Impact: The senior transferred to Iowa State from Virginia and averaged 18.7 points and 4.9 rebounds per game in his lone season as a Cyclone. Shayok is an older prospect at 23 years old, but he has good size for his position and averaged 38.1 percent from three across four collegiate seasons.
News: The Celtics selected Edwards in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft at No. 34 overall via the 76ers.
Impact: Edwards has potential to provide instant-offense off the bench if he is able to earn the minutes as a reserve in the Celtics' backcourt. He averaged 24.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 2.9 assists across 35.4 minutes during his Junior season at Purdue.
News: Thybulle was selected by the 76ers with the 20th pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Impact: The 76ers traded the 24th and 33rd picks in the draft to the Celtics in order to snag the 20th overall pick and select Thybulle. Thybulle was a four-year starter at Washington, averaging 9.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 3.5 steals, and 2.3 blocks in 36 games as a senior this past season. He's not a dominant scorer but is one of the best defenders in this draft class and should slot in as a backup guard or small forward for Philadelphia this coming season.
News: Butler is expected to decline his player option for 2019-20 and test free agency, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. According to Haynes, the 76ers remain determined to retain Butler.
Impact: Last season, the four-time All-Star averaged 18.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.9 steals while helping lead the 76ers to a down-to-the-wire Game 7 against the Raptors in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Butler is one of the best two-way players in the league, and he'll be highly sought-after by a variety of teams. The Sixers have the advantage from a financial standpoint -- able to offer Butler the most total money -- but that may not be all that matters to the 29-year-old.
