Pressey was waived by the Sixers last week, reducing their roster to 15 players. Pressey was made expendable when Philadelphia recalled Tony Wroten and Kendall Marshall from the D-League. Pressey was signed by the club last month via the hardship provision. He appeared in 14 games with the Sixers, averaging 3.9 points and 3.3 assists in 12.1 minutes.
Prior to joining Philadelphia, Pressey was on the Stampede’s roster after the Jazz designated him as an affiliate player. The Jazz briefly had him on their NBA roster after snagging him off waivers from the Trail Blazers, for whom he played in training camp. Pressey lost a training camp battle for the third point guard job in Portland to Tim Frazier, a former Sixers point guard.
Before signing a training camp deal with the Blazers, the 5’11” Pressey was on the Celtics’ roster until they released him this past summer. He appeared in 125 games with Boston in his first two NBA seasons, including 11 starts.
