Sixers Reach Agreement With Ryan Broekhoff

4:59pm: Broekhoff’s deal will be non-guaranteed, tweets Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer.


4:14pm: The Sixers have agreed to a contract with free agent swingman Ryan Broekhoff, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweets. The terms have yet to be announced but it’s anticipated that he’ll get the veteran’s minimum.

Broekhoff signed with Philadelphia prior to the restart as a substitute player but bowed out after his wife contracted the coronavirus.  He played the last two seasons with the Mavericks, averaging 4.0 PPG in 10.7 in 59 career games. He’s a 40.3% 3-point shooter.

He was waived in February when Dallas signed Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

Broekhoff spent the first few years of his career with Besiktas in Turkey and Lokomotiv Kuban in Russia and had drawn interest from international teams. However, he preferred to resume his career in the NBA.

    Adding depth is never a bad thing. Morey is bring in a lot of shooters. Let them play it out on the court and the best players get the mins. Competition is a great thing

    Ryan Broekoff was always so underrated when especially when he was on Dallas he’s a 40% 3pt shooter who is always a decent defender and this will definitely help the sixers on both sides of the floor.

    it’s strange to be a 76er fan and have people talk about all the good moves that the sixers are doing and all the good hirings they’re bringing in from the front office to the coach and staff and it’s like a light switch flit for Josh Harrison the ownership group and it seems like everything they’ve done since they were knocked out of the playoffs has been perfect

  4. I think it’s a testament to Morey and his ability to communicate a vision, to ownership, to players, to fans, to opposing teams. Perhaps he can finally perfect his craft in Philly and get a chip. So far, I really like what he’s done. The pieces seem to fit way better than before.

    Heaps of shooters for depth, I like it.

    Really interested to see how we go next season.
    I blamed a lot of our failure on Brett Brown and fairly too. He had very poor tactics, made huge changes to the team just before or during the playoffs, couldn’t develop or improve the young guys and we just weren’t going anywhere with him. Not that Doc is some great amazing coach but he’s a proven good coach. I’m not expecting titles just yet but I’d just like to see some good set plays/tactics, and some development/improvements with both Embiid and Simmons in particular but also Mattise.

    I’ve said lots of times but since entering the league Embiid and Simmons haven’t exactly improved much. 2/3 years ago we were getting all the hype with Simmons the next LeBron/Magic and Embiid the modern Shaq. Still to this day we haven’t seen to much improvement with Simmons jump shot, and we haven’t seen Embiid be completely dominant for long enough stretches. His paint game has been second to none but he needs to just show more determination, more strength and passion on both ends.

    Let’s hope we can improve from Brett
