With an open two-way slot after releasing Demetrius Jackson, the Sixers will sign rookie Haywood Highsmith.
Highsmith went undrafted in the 2018 NBA draft and profiles as a two-way perimeter forward the Sixers have been desperate for since the departure of Robert Covington. He averaged 15.4 points, 9.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.4 blocks over a four-year career at Wheeling Jesuit, a Division II college. He has played in 21 games with the Delaware Blue Coats this season, averaging 13.8 points and 6.9 rebounds, while shooting 45 percent from the floor and 39.4 percent from behind the arc.
