10:46am: The Sixers have officially confirmed the signing of Davies in a press release.
MONDAY, 9:05am: The Sixers have signed Davies, a league source confirms to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.
SUNDAY, 9:24pm: Less than a week after he was released by the Clippers, undrafted rookie Brandon Davies is close to finalizing a contract with the Sixers, reports Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com. The potential deal, which was first reported by Greg Wrubell of KSL Radio (Twitter link), has been agreed upon and will be a non-guaranteed pact, according to Jake Pavorsky of Liberty Ballers.
Davies, a 21-year-old power forward, played four seasons at BYU, averaging 17.7 PPG and 8.0 RPG in 36 contests during his senior year. He was picked up by the Clips shortly after this June’s draft, playing for the club’s Summer League squad and appearing in five preseason games. According to Pavorsky, Davies has drawn interest from several teams since being cut by the Clippers.
The Sixers trimmed their roster down to 14 players this weekend, releasing Royce White and several camp invitees, including multiple players with partial guarantees. By opening up that 15th spot for the regular season, Philadelphia won’t have to waive another player when the team makes the signing of Davies official.
