Sixers Re-Sign Casper Ware To 10-Day Contract

FRIDAY, 7:57am: The Sixers have officially announced the deal, via press release.

WEDNESDAY, 4:51pm: Ware hasn’t received confirmation from the team about whether he’ll receive another 10-day deal, as he told reporters, including Tom Moore of Calkins Media (Twitter link).

8:09am: The Sixers will sign point guard Casper Ware to a second 10-day contract, tweets Sean Deveney of The Sporting News. His first deal with the team is set to expire after Philadelphia’s game against the Bobcats tonight.

Philadelphia’s decision to bring aboard the 5’10” Ware was a surprise, since he was by no means a dominant figure for Virtus Bologna of Italy, where he had been playing. The Sixers have nonetheless plugged him into their rotation, as he’s averaged 16.0 minutes per game over four NBA contests. He’s notched 3.8 points, 1.3 assists and 0.8 turnovers, and he’s made just five of his 23 attempts from the floor.

The 24-year-old Rize Management client will get at least a few more games to try to find his stroke. He and fellow 10-day signee James Nunnally occupy the final two spots on the Sixers roster.

C’mon. The assignment is to win as few games as possible, so as to increase the chance of drafting Andrew Wiggins. In that light, the signings and resignings make perfect sense.

Well, it’s not surprising in the sense that the Sixers aren’t going out and signing veterans of the Mickael Pietrus/Richard Hamilton kind. But, out of all the professional basketball players in the world, to pick Casper Ware? That’s surprising!

It increases the chance of getting more “ping pong balls”, no? Give Ware the minutes, and someone more likely to score points and make assists will not be employing them.

Yeah, I mean, I don’t think Sam Hinkie’s out there looking for guys who can help the team finish .500 over its last few games or anything like that. Teams in Philly’s position bring inexperienced guys in and give them minutes to see if they can help in the future. And if it costs the team a few wins in the present? All the better.
