Player News - 76ers

Date: Team: Pos:

Jordan McRae will be at training camp with the 76ers, but he doesn't have a deal with the club yet.

Mcrae's summer league was cut short due to a toe sprain, so he will face an uphill battle to make the regular season roster for the 76ers. He is not on the fantasy radar, but he is worth keeping an eye on during camp due to Philly's underwhelming backcourt..

Jahlil Okafor said that one of his goals is to win the Rookie of the Year Award.

Joel Embiid (foot) is set to miss another season, so Okafor should be considered one of the favorites for the award because he is expected to play major minutes right out of the gate. He will be an exciting fit next to Nerlens Noel in the frontcourt, but his poor free throw percentage could limit his upside in the early going.

Following the news that Jason Thompson was traded to the Warriors, Richaun Holmes could be in the rotation for the 76ers next season.

Holmes recently signed a four-year deal with the 76ers, so it would make a lot of sense to give him some run early on. He is currently recovering from a fractured elbow, but he will begin shooting and working out next week and should be good for training camp. Holmes would come off the bench behind Nerlens Noel if he impresses at training camp, but he won't see enough action to matter in standard leagues.

Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated said that it's highly unlikely that Carl Landry will stick around with the 76ers.

The 76ers could pursue a trade, a buyout or simply waive the 31-year-old veteran, and that would likely happen before training camp. Landry is currently recovering from wrist surgery and it's possible that he isn't ready to start the season, but it's also clear that Landry isn't in Philly's long-term plans. In case it isn't obvious, Landry isn't on the standard league radar.

Gerald Wallace was traded from Golden State to the 76ers on Friday.

The 76ers also pick up cash and draft considerations. Wallace could wind up getting playing time with the 76ers, but the 33-year-old forward is past his prime. Still, the 76ers have no depth and Wallace can fill a stat sheet, so he's on the radar for fantasy.

The 76ers and J.P. Tokoto are working on a training camp deal.

He didn't look like an NBA player at Summer League and was very bashful about his jumper. Tokoto is very athletic and could be one of the better dunkers in the NBA, but he's a long way from being a consistent contributor.

The 76ers announced the signing of Richaun Holmes (elbow) to a four-year deal on Friday.

The first two years of the deal will be guaranteed and the fourth year will be a team option. As reported earlier, Holmes (elbow) will begin working out and shooting next week, and he is fully expected to be ready for training camp. Holmes could see some time in the rotation behind Nerlens Noel, but he isn't an option in most leagues.

The 76ers have remained quiet over the status of Joel Embiid's foot.

The 76ers sent out a statement on July 11 saying that Embiid would undergo a season-ending bone graft surgery on his foot "in the next 7-10 days", but 20 days have now gone by without an answer from the franchise. It is still unclear if Embiid has already had the surgery, so this situation is odd to say the least. The 76ers haven't been very transparent throughout this process, but we will be sure to update Embiid's status as soon as we know more. To be clear, Embiid is still expected to miss the entire 2015-16 season unless we hear otherwise.

According to CSN Philly, J.P. Tokoto will likely spend next season overseas or in the NBA D-League.

The 76ers haven't signed Tokoto yet, but they are expected to hold onto his draft rights. We will let you know where he ends up, but it may be a while before we see him in the NBA.

Richaun Holmes (elbow) is expected to be ready in time for training camp.

According to a league source of CSN Philly, Holmes is expected to begin shooting and working out next week and will be fully ready for camp. Holmes just signed a four-year deal with two of those years guaranteed for $2.1 million, so the 76ers clearly like him. Holmes will likely see some time behind Nerlens Noel in the rotation, but he isn't on the radar in standard leagues yet.

The first two years of Richaun Holmes' four-year deal with the 76ers are guaranteed for $2.1 million.

Additionally, the fourth year of his deal is a team option. Holmes suffered a fractured elbow during the summer league, but the 76ers still must have felt confident enough to give him a multi-year deal. Holmes isn't on the fantasy radar yet, but he will be someone to monitor at training camp because this is the 76ers we are talking about.
Jul 30 - 7:04 PM

The 76ers signed Richaun Holmes to a multiple-year deal.

It won't be fully guaranteed and Holmes will have a tough time making the team. He suffered a fractured elbow at Summer League after playing in three games. Holmes has some potential as a 6'8" forward with decent range and blocking 2.6 shots per game in his three-year college career. Obviously he's not on the fantasy radar yet.

Maalik Wayns has signed with Pallacanestro Varese, sources told Sportando.

Wayns has bounced around overseas since his release from the Clippers in January of 2014, and the pint-sized point guard will find a more lucrative career abroad than he would stateside.
Jul 27 - 9:55 AM

Ronny Turiaf (hip) is hoping for another shot in the NBA after making just two appearances during the 2014-15 season.

The 10-year veteran is clearly past his prime and his body is starting to wear down, and he wouldn't have more than a limited role on any NBA team. Turiaf can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Larry Drew II will sign a contract with AS Monaco in France.

Drew made 12 appearances with the 76ers last season with averages of 3.8 points, 3.8 assists and 1.3 boards per game, but it may be a while before he gets another shot at the NBA. Drew is not on the fantasy radar.
