Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot signed his rookie deal with the Sixers on Saturday.
The only thing we don’t like about Luwawu-Cabarrot is the decision to add the hyphenated name to his repertoire, which now makes his name harder to type and for that inconvenience he is all but certain to be nicknamed TLC.
How the Sixers got him at No. 24 is sort of mind blowing, as he comes into the league with good athlecism and shooting touch and a game patterned after Paul George. There are the usual flaws from a player in the Serbian leagues that more or less came out of nowhere, but the upside is there and the foundation isn’t broken or anything like that. We’ll be watching him closely to see how the Sixers’ roster ends up in a week or so.
