Sixers Sign Jerryd Bayless To Three-Year Deal

JULY 13: Nearly two weeks after agreeing to sign him, the Sixers have made their deal with Bayless official, confirming it today in a press release.Jerryd Bayless vertical

JULY 1: The Sixers have reached an agreement on a multiyear deal with unrestricted free agent Jerryd Bayless, Jon Krawczynski of The Associated Press reports (Twitter links). The guard will receive a three-year deal worth $27MM, the scribe adds. All three seasons of the pact are fully guaranteed.

The addition of Bayless is a solid one for the Sixers, who desperately need backcourt depth and outside shooting. Philly was reportedly seeking to add veterans to its roster this offseason, and with Bayless set to be in the fold, are off to a solid start in that department.

The 27-year-old appeared in 52 games for the Bucks this past season, including 18 contests as a starter. Bayless averaged 10.4 points, 2.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 28.9 minutes per outing while shooting .423/.437/.778 from the field.

      Yeah garbage that bayless is leaving the bucks. Hes a great player, too bad that he has to leave.

    Well at least it’s not Skip Bayless. Right, Sixers fans?

    • Skip is too expensive

      • Lefty_Orioles_Fan

        Well, Jerryd isn’t exactly a rock bottom bargain.
        The Sixers are tripling his salary

        • Tripling his salary is sort of misleading considering the increase in cap. While the number is surprising, $6 million seemed to be the rate for backup guards. The Sixers probably had to throw in an extra million or two on top of what they originally wanted to convince Bayless to sign with them. Considering their terrible play the last 3 years, guys aren’t exactly flocking to Philly, they’re going to have to overpay guys to get them to go there.

    considering that Bayless was apparently one of the 5 best in the league in effective field goal percentage (68.6%) on catch and shoot opportunities, thats a good fit next to Ben Simmons. Money seems about right, maybe a couple of mil more than I would have thought, but pretty much what a couple of other similar players are getting

    • Eddie Scarito

      This deal is just a bit above what the MLE will be for next season. Very solid signing. Plus, that amount is OK to have on books even if Bayless is strictly a reserve. LOVE this move for the team.

    Milwaukee seriously needs to address the guard spot with some shooting, and they probably want to add another capable shooter on the wing as well

    He was our one free agent I wanted to keep. Sixers will love his play

  6. Love it

    Dude can shoot and Simmons can do some ball handlin n all dat good stuff

    Definitely not the PG of the future tho but a solid option for next season
