Sixers sign Scottie Wilbekin to four-year deal
The Philadelphia 76ers need depth at the point guard position. Their two (healthy) cornerstones are in the frontcourt, but they don't have anyone to run the offense or feed Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor the ball.
Is former University of Florida standout Scottie Wilbekin the answer?
Wilbekin averaged 14.4 points per game at Las Vegas Summer League, and, more importantly, shot over 45 percent from behind the three-point line.
If he can defend at the professional level, the Sixers may have themselves a new starting point guard. Then again, the fact that the first-year of his deal is only partially guaranteed means Wilbekin shouldn't look to buy a house in the Philadelphia area just yet.
