Sixers Working Out Jodie Meeks, Corey Brewer, Others

The Sixers are hosting a handful of NBA veterans and G League for workouts on Monday and Tuesday, with an emphasis on backcourt players, wings, and shooters, according to reports.

Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer first reported that the club would be working out Jodie Meeks, Corey Brewer, Brandon Rush, and Jamel Artis on Monday. Rush also worked out for the 76ers in December, but this appears to be the first time that the team has brought in Meeks, Brewer, and Artis.

Meanwhile, Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated (Twitter link) hears that a workout on Tuesday will feature G League wings Josh Huestis, Rashad Vaughn, and D.J. Hogg. Hogg was briefly a Sixer back in October when the club signed him at the end of the preseason to secure his NBAGL rights.

The Sixers have one open roster spot and could use some shooting help, as well as some depth on the wing. The team will keep an eye out for trade opportunities and will monitor the buyout market in the hopes of striking gold again after landing Marco Belinelli and Ersan Ilyasova a year ago.

However, while they wait for those opportunities to materialize, the Sixers might explore short-term solutions. Philadelphia’s open roster spot could accommodate a player on a 10-day contract, and the 76ers have until tomorrow to make a change to their two-way contract slots if they so desire.

  1. I don’t see any of those players moving the needle for this team. Brewer plays nice D but is a streaky shooter at best, he’s an old poor man’s Robert Covington. Meeks needs chemical enhancement to continue his miraculous career revival. Brandon Rush can’t move.
    This team peaked last year and opponents chose to not to defend Simmons.
    I don’t see good things for them, which is a shame as they were really building momentum at the end of last season.

  2. Yes Meeks & Rush, no Brewer and Artis. Still need 4/5 depth if Patton is never going to play.
