Sixers Sign Sergio Rodriguez

JULY 13: The Sixers have officially issued a press release to announce their deal with Rodriguez. Eric Pincus of Basketball Insiders reported on Tuesday that it’s worth $6.8MM over one year.

JULY 4: After striking a deal with Jerryd Bayless earlier in free agency, the Sixers have further fortified their backcourt by reaching an agreement with Spanish guard Sergio Rodriguez, tweets Shams Charania of The Vertical. According to Charania, the Sixers and Rodriguez have agreed to a one-year, $8MM contract.

Rodriguez, 30, was a first-round pick back in 2006, but hasn’t appeared in an NBA game since the 2009/10 season, when he played a total of 66 games for the Kings and Knicks. Rodriguez previously spent time with the Trail Blazers, and appeared in a total of 285 regular-season NBA contests. However, he averaged just 13.2 minutes per game during his NBA career, and didn’t make much of an impact.

Over the last several seasons, Rodriguez has been a go-to contributor for Spain’s Real Madrid. In 27 Euroleague games during the 2015/16 season (23.4 MPG), Rodriguez averaged 10.9 points and 6.2 assists per game, while shooting 49.5% from the floor and 40.9% from three-point range.

The Nets had previously been dubbed the favorites to reach a deal with Rodriguez, but last Friday a report had indicated that an agreement between the two sides appeared “unlikely.”

Seriously Sixers? $8 million for a 30 yr. old that has not played in the NBA since 2009/2010. I thought tank mode was over? 2 moves so far probably gets them up to 15 wins.

Who do you propose they sign/trade for? No single player makes that team a playoff team.
