MONDAY, 10:31am: The Sixers announced that they have signed Nunnally, making the deal official.
SUNDAY, 4:05pm:The Sixers are set to sign D-League forward James Nunnally to a 10-day contract today, league sources tell Shams Charania of RealGM (on Twitter). Nunnally previously had a pair of 10-day deals with the Hawks.
Nunnally, 24, auditioned for the Sixers at the same time as Darius Johnson-Odom, who also got a 10-day deal with the club. He’s done most of his work this season with the Bakersfield Jam of the D-League, averaging 18.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game.
In four games with the Hawks (his only time in the NBA), Nunnally averaged 4.5 points on .333 shooting and 2 rebounds per game in 13.5 minutes. Before the Hawks gave him a look, the Cavs, Bulls, and Thunder all showed some interest in the 23-year-old. Nunnally spent time in the Suns’ training camp over the summer before being waived.
