Sixers To Sign Aminu Mohammed, Michael Foster Jr.

The Sixers have reached an agreement with undrafted Georgetown guard Aminu Mohammed, league sources tell Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports (Twitter link). According to Haynes, Mohammed will sign an Exhibit 10 contract with Philadelphia.

Mohammed spent just one year in college, but made an impact for the Hoyas, averaging 13.7 PPG, 8.2 RPG, and 1.6 SPG in 31 games (32.2 MPG). He struggled to score efficiently, however, shooting just 37.9% from the floor, including 31.0% on three-pointers.

Meanwhile, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link), the 76ers have also struck a deal with another notable undrafted rookie, having agreed to sign Michael Foster Jr.

Foster, a forward who played for the G League Ignite in 2021/22, is the No. 3 prospect on ESPN’s list of undrafted rookies. The former five-star recruit recorded 14.8 PPG, 8.8 RPG, 2.0 APG, and 1.9 BPG in 13 games (29.8 MPG) for the Ignite.

The terms of Foster’s agreement are unclear, but if it’s an Exhibit 10 deal like Mohammed’s, it’ll be a non-guaranteed minimum-salary contract that could be converted into a two-way deal before the regular season begins. A player on an Exhibit 10 contract is also eligible for a bonus worth up to $50K if he’s waived and then becomes an affiliate player for his team’s G League squad.
