-- The Sixers have signed Casper
to a second 10-day deal, the team announced.
Ware has averaged 3.6 points,
1.2 assists and 1.2 rebounds in 14.2 minutes over five appearances for the
Sixers, who signed him out of Italy’s first division late last month.
When asked Wednesday about his
future with the Sixers, Ware sounded ambivalent. He said the idea of flying to
his home country for his first chance at playing in the NBA was a lot to
“You’ve got 10 days to come
out here and show what you’ve got,” Ware said. “You just try to listen to what
they say and take it all in. You have to do it right and the right way.”
The 5-10, 170-pounder’s latest
contract will take him to April 12, four days and two games shy of the season
finale at Miami. At that point, the Sixers could opt to let him go or sign him
for the remainder of the season.
The Sixers play Friday night at Boston.
