  • Shake Milton
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Shake Milton (ankle) will miss Wednesday's Summer League game against the Pistons after not practicing on Tuesday.

    Milton agreed to a four-year contract with the Sixers earlier this month, and the team is unlikely to push him for Summer League action. He may find a few reserve minutes this season but he is far off the fantasy radar.

  • Zhaire Smith

    Zhaire Smith had another nice Summer League game on Monday as he put up 18 points (8-of-19 FGs), five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in 34 minutes in an 84-81 overtime loss to the Thunder.

    Smith is off to a great start in Summer League and hopefully, he's finally fully healthy. He has loads of potential, but he happens to be on a loaded contender, making it tough for him to get enough minutes to matter this year in standard fantasy leagues.

  • Matisse Thybulle
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Matisse Thybulle finished with 14 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals, three blocks and two triples on 4-of-10 shooting in 30 minutes vs. the Thunder on Monday.

    Thybulle's shot wasn't falling tonight but he certainly contributed in other ways. The three blocks and two steals for a small forward are incredible and he's got a motor that NBA teams should be taking notice of. The 76ers have a stacked roster right now so it would be tough to see him cracking consistent minutes in the rotation but the potential is there.

  • Shake Milton
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Shake Milton appeared to suffer an ankle injury in Monday's Summer League game.

    No word on the severity of the injury, and there's really no need for the Sixers to push Milton at all. We wouldn't be surprised if he sat a game or two as a precaution. Milton had five points in 12 minutes before departing the game.

  • Marial Shayok
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Marial Shayok (left knee soreness) will miss Monday's Summer League game.

    It's expected to be a minor issue, and Shayok has performed well in Summer League so far so the Sixers are just being extra cautious with their new two-way player.

  • Marial Shayok
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    The Sixers have signed Marial Shayok to a two-way contract.

    Shayok was a relatively surprising selection at 54th overall, but the 24-year-old (for three more weeks, anyway) has performed well in Summer League action so far. The Sixers like his shooting ability and will look to round out his game in the G-League while taking advantage of his floor-spacing when he's up with the big club.

  • Zhaire Smith
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Zhaire Smith notched 14 points on 4-of-9 shooting, adding four boards, two treys, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes on Saturday vs. the Celtics in Summer League.

    Smith's rookie season was marred by a foot injury that eventually required surgery that sidelined him for much of 2018-19. To add injury to more injury, the rookie also experienced a strong allergic reaction to something he ate after he recovered from surgery. Yes, it was a rough season for sure. Smith has the makings of a talented scorer but will need to take his baby steps now, during his sophomore season. Keep an eye on him in the preseason.

  • Matisse Thybulle
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Matisse Thybulle put up an excellent effort for the Sixers in Summer League action on Saturday, posting 15 points (four 3s) on 5-of-12 shooting and a full line.

    Thybulle also added six boards, one assist, one steal and two blocks to the box score. He's a potentially an NBA-ready contributor but will have to earn his minutes on a stacked Sixers roster.

  • Norvel Pelle
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Newly-signed two-way player Norvel Pelle delivered 12 points, seven rebounds, two steals and three blocks in Friday's 107-106 win at Summer League.

    This being Summer League, we also need to point out that Pelle picked up nine fouls in only 22 minutes. Still, he profiles as a potential shot-blocking dynamo should he ever crack the NBA full-time. Rookie Christ Koumadje also stepped up with five blocks in only 14 minutes. The 7'4" center will try to prove his worth at Summer League after going undrafted in June.

  • Marial Shayok
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Marial Shayok scored a team-high 19 points in Friday's Summer League win, going 7-of-13 from the field with three triples.

    Mayok is set to turn 25 this month and was one of the oldest players in this season's draft pool, though his reliable 3-point stroke means he will always have a pathway to a role. More performances like this would help his case but we're not expecting to see Shayok with the Sixers this season.

  • Matisse Thybulle
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Matisse Thybulle started in Friday's Summer League opener but could only muster seven points, one 3-pointer and three steals in 24 minutes of work.

    Thybulle offers long-term upside as a premier wing defender, so we're not expecting him to put up gaudy stat lines in Vegas. Most of the excitement will come from actually watching Thybulle defend, though the swipes today are a reminder of the havoc he can create on that end of the floor.

  • Shake Milton
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Shake Milton put up 15 points in Friday's Summer League win but went a horrific 2-of-14 from the field to get there.

    Milton, who recently agreed to a four-year deal with the Sixers, added seven rebounds and a steal. He saved his day by going 11-of-13 from the free throw line, and while the poor shooting is not what dynasty owners would like to see it was good to see him staying aggressive in getting to the line. Milton's length and defensive abilities give him an outside chance at landing in the rotation, with his new contract a show of faith from the organization.

  • Raul Neto
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Raul Neto and the Sixers have agreed to a one-year, veteran's minimum deal per Shams Charania.

    Neto should step into T.J. McConnell's role for Philly and will give them a quality, if uninspiring, guy to keep things in order when Ben Simmons is off the floor.

  • Anzejs Pasecniks
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Anzejz Pasecniks will join the Wizards for Summer League once the Sixers renounce his rights.

    Pasecniks picks an interesting landing spot, as the former first-rounder will look to impress a team that has only Thomas Bryant, Dwight Howard and Ian Mahinmi in the mix at center. Howard and Mahinmi are not long-term considerations at all, so it's possible that Pasecniks can show the organization that he's worth developing.

  • Shake Milton
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Per Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Shake Milton is signing a four-year contract with the Sixers.

    Milton has some nice potential but will fill a depth role for the Sixers next season. He can defend multiple positions, which will help him get on the court. Milton is another name the Sixers can throw at opponents, in what looks like one of the best defensive teams in the league.
