Sixers’ Tyrese Maxey Signs Rookie Contract

The Sixers have signed first-round pick Tyrese Maxey, the team announced in a press release. A 6’3″ guard out of Kentucky, Maxey was the 21st overall selection in last month’s draft.

Terms of the deal were not released, but as a first-round pick Maxey is eligible to earn up to 120% of the rookie scale, which would be $2,478,840 for the upcoming season.

Maxey played one season for the Wildcats, earning a spot on the All-SEC Second Team and the SEC All-Freshman Team. He averaged 14.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 31 games.

Now that Maxey is officially under contract, there are no outstanding rookie deals still to be completed for 2020 first-round picks. Twenty-nine of those 30 players have signed their first NBA contracts, with the 30th player – Leandro Bolmaro – remaining in Barcelona for the 2020/21 season.

    I am excited about Maxey and seeing how much he can offer in his rookie year as well as glimpses of his potential.

    Maxey plus Joe & Reed, and FA Howard… with Thybulle & Simmons, and Embiid around the rim… could be a great defense… Lakers showed the value of having no weak spots for a defense.
