Sixers Sign Ryan Broekhoff

JUNE 27: The signing is official, the Sixers announced on Twitter.

JUNE 26: The Sixers have reached an agreement to sign free agent swingman Ryan Broekhoff, agent Andy Shiffman tells Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN (Twitter link).

Broekhoff, who will turn 30 in August, signed with the Mavericks in the summer of 2018 and spent a season-and-a-half with the club, averaging 4.0 PPG and 1.8 RPG with a strong .403 3PT% in 59 total games (10.7 MPG). He was waived in February when Dallas signed Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

Since becoming a free agent, Broekhoff – who spent the first few years of his career with Besiktas in Turkey and Lokomotiv Kuban in Russia – has drawn interest from multiple international teams, including Anadolu Efes. However, it appears the veteran sharpshooter was prioritizing a potential return to the NBA, and now has the opportunity to join a playoff team for the summer restart.

The 76ers currently have 15 players on standard contracts and one on a two-way deal. Because Broekhoff has just two years of NBA experience, he can be signed into the team’s empty two-way slot, as noted by Rich Hofmann of The Athletic and Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer (Twitter links)

    Why not get someone a little more valuable like Jamal Crawford even tho he’s 40 now I’d still rather him.

    Crawford isn’t eligible for a 2way plus sixers need a good shooter rather then another player that needs the ball in his hands a lot

    Ryan showed he can come in and shoot it. He doesn’t produce big numbers and doesn’t need big minutes but his 40% from 3 in 10 mins is impressive. He comes off the wood hot and ready to fire

    It’s so funny reading Royce Y. on ESPN’s website pondering whether or not the Sixers should try to drop down to the 6th seed so they could avoid facing the Bucks in the conference semi-finals. So hilarious since they won’t even get past the first round!

      I have been saying well before the shutdown that PHI needed to keep the #6 instead of trying to get the #4, as they have a very good chance to knock BOS, then TOR they were the luckiest team to beat them last year with an Embiid that wasn’t healthy, so I would take them always over TOR, so then you are in the ECF against MIL, at that point all is possible!

        If Philly is better than Toronto, why did they drop 2/3 regular season matchups? Besides, Philly struggles immensely on the road, so the 4 seed would at least give them an advantage in the first round

          Seriously?!?!? Have you heard about the bubble concept? No home court advantage… you see!

    Sixers have chemistry issues. And Simmons shouldn’t be Ball dominant. They should have kept Butler. Simmons to me is best at SF. He can still run team from there. Share with a scoring PG. DRuss was available but they signed Horforf. Imagine Embiid, Simmons, DRuss, Butler. Best move they can make is move Horford and Harris. Knicks would take Harris. They should no problem moving Harris. I think Lnicks take Horford if it’s for Randle. Brand should be exploring those two for trades.

      At 6-10, 240 Simmons is more of a PF than a SF (he’s definitely not a PG by any means despite all of his assists). Draymond gets almost as many APG and no one confuses him as being a PG. In the modern NBA you can’t have a PG who attempts just six 3-point attempts in 54 games, it makes absolutely no sense.

    Ryan signing is the start of something good for next year. Sixers now have Ben Simmons, Mattise Thybulle, Ryan Broekenhoff and Brett Brown who are all apart of team Australia.
    Hopefully in free agency they can sign either Patty Mills or Mathew Dellavedova for the veteran minimum. Either player would make a good PG for their second unit particularly Mills who is a solid shooter and with loads of playoff experience

  7. Skip, Tampa

    Always been confused by the Magic Johnson wanta be move of Simmons. He could easily dominant at the PF spot.
    Agree completely on both Harris and Horford need a new home for next year.
    Harris for Portis, Knox, DSJ
    Horford for Dinwiddie and LeVert.
    Plus picks where they apply.
    Dinwiddie, LeVert, Richardson, Simmons, Embid.
