Sixers Considering Daniel Gibson?


The Philadelphia 76ers are in the middle of a re-building stage, and are in need of a back-up point guard. According to reports, the Sixers are interested in signing point-guard Daniel Gibson. Gibson, who has spent his entire career with the Cleveland Cavilers is now a free-agent, and would be a nice pick up for the team.

Gibson has a great three point shot, which would be a great asset to have coming off the bench. Also, as of now, the Sixers have no proven back up points on the roster, which is another reason why this signing would make sense. Sure, Gibson has only averaged 7.8 points per game over his career, but he is still young to improve.

Michael Carter-Williams is expected to be the teams starting point guard. Cater-Williams is also unproven as he enters his first season in the league. Getting Gibson for cheap on a one-year deal would be a logical move for the 76ers as they need to look to add more young players to the roster. Expect a flurry of moves to come for the team soon, and do not be surprised if Daniel Gibson is suiting up in front of Philly fans this upcoming season.
