Sixers Interested In Casper Ware

The Sixers have interest in point guard Casper Ware and may invite him to audition for the team, a source tells Emiliano Carchia of Sportando. It’s unclear if the interest in Ware, who just parted ways with Virtus Bologna of Italy, is tied to the team’s workouts with four others or its apparent multiyear deal with Jarvis Varnado. Signing Varnado for the season would give Philadelphia 15 guaranteed contracts, so the team would have to cut one of those deals to sign Ware or anyone else.

Ware went undrafted out of Long Beach State in 2012, and aside from summer league stints with the Pistons and Rockets the past two offseasons, he’s conducted his pro career overseas. He was the MVP of Italy’s second-tier league last year, though his numbers tailed off this season with a step up to Italy’s first division. He averaged 11.7 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists on just 36.3% shooting in 31.0 minutes per game.

His best assets may lie on defense. He was the Big West Defensive Player of the Year during his junior year in college, and over his four-year college career, he averaged 1.6 steals per game.
