The 76ers have agreed to terms on a two-year contract for undrafted free agent James Webb III, reports Shams Charania of The Vertical (via Twitter). According to Charania, the former Boise State forward will get a partial guarantee on his new deal with Philadelphia and will have a chance to compete for a roster spot.
Webb, who left Boise State after his junior year, ranked 72nd among the top 100 prospects at DraftExpress.com. ESPN’s Chad Ford was even more bullish on Webb, placing him 60th on his big board prior to the draft. Last season, the 6’9″ forward appeared in 29 games for the Broncos, averaging 16.1 points and 6.8 rebounds per contest.
Philadelphia will have plenty of cap room at its disposal once the new league year begins in July, but given his status as an undrafted free agent, Webb seems unlikely to sign for more than the minimum. If it is indeed a minimum-salary contract, he’d be in line for $1,448,720 over two years.
The Sixers brought Webb in as part of a group workout in late May.
