Ryan Broekhoff has found a home for the upcoming NBA season.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Broekhoff has reached an agreement on a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers.
Broekhoff is technically re-joining the Sixers, as he signed a contract with the team ahead of the NBA Restart but was unable to join as he left to tend to a family matter. The 30-year-old Aussie, who made his NBA debut in 2018, appeared in 59 games with the Dallas Mavericks over the past two seasons, posting averages 4.0 points and 1.8 rebounds per contest.
A career 40.3% 3-point shooter, Broekhoff is yet another floor-spacing addition to a Sixers team that has already added Seth Curry and Danny Green this offseason.
Under the leadership of new head coach Doc Rivers and new president of basketball operations Daryl Morey, the Philadelphia franchise looks to bounce back after a season that ended with a disappointing first-round sweep at the hands of the Boston Celtics.
In surrounding the All-Star duo of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid with complementary talent, the Sixers continue to make steps in the right direction.
The 2020-21 NBA season is set to begin on Wednesday, Dec. 23 (AEDT).
