The Sixers have signed Larry Drew II to his second 10-day contract with the team, Philadelphia announced via press release. His initial 10-day deal expired at the end of Sunday. This will be the final 10-day arrangement this season between the Sixers and the point guard, who’ll have to decide whether to ink a deal for the rest of the season or part ways when his latest contract runs out.
Drew has seen fairly heavy use during his time with the Sixers, appearing in six contests for an average of 18.7 minutes per game. He’s putting up 4.7 points and 4.3 assists per night, his solid ball-distribution representative of his time for the Heat’s D-League affiliate earlier this season. The ASM Sports client set a D-League record for assists in a single game with 23 on Christmas Day.
The 24-year-old Drew will continue to help bolster a Sixers team that’s lost backup point guard Tony Wroten to a torn ACL. Drew’s new contract puts Philadelphia back up at 16 players, one more than the standard 15-man limit. Andrei Kirilenko‘s presence on the suspended list gives the team the extra roster spot.
