The Sixers have signed undrafted rookie Michael Foster Jr., the team announced today in a press release.
Shams Charania of The Athletic indicated last month that Foster was heading to Philadelphia, so the news was expected. He’s currently a member of the Sixers’ Summer League squad.
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, 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.
