The revolving door that leads
to the 76ers’ locker room continues to turn, signing D-Leaguer James Nunnally
to a 10-day deal, a league source confirmed.
The Sixers have opted to use
their last roster spot for trial-and-error purposes in the final stages of a
tanking season. Assuming Nunnally makes at least one appearance, the 6-7 swingman
will be the 21st player to have worn a Sixers uniform this season.
Also, he’s the ninth among their 13 healthy players with D-League experience.
Nunnally (6-7, 205) made his
NBA debut this season, appearing in four games with Atlanta. Along with
recently inked guard Darius Johnson-Odom, he was one of four players the Sixers
brought in last week for an off-day workout at their practice facility. Nunnally
averaged 17.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game in 33 appearances
The 23-year-old went undrafted
out of UC-Santa Barbara in 2012.
To free up a roster spot for
Nunnally, the Sixers waived point guard Eric Maynor. Acquired from Washington in
a deal at the trade deadline, Maynor will be compensated $2.1 million for the
player option he holds for the 2014-15 season.
