76ers Bringing In Casper Ware For Tryout


Well, add Casper Ware’s name to the list of guys the Sixers are working out that I’ve never heard of.

Per sportando.com, the Sixers are bringing Casper Ware in for a workout. This seasons gets more interesting by the day. If you must know, Casper Ware played his college ball at Long Beach State, graduating after the 2011-2012 season. After college, Ware went over to Italy, where he was playing with Virtus Bologna (it’s a real team — not lunch meat, I swear). He was averaging 11.7 points, 2.7 boards and 2.2 assists in 22 games in Serie A (!) this season. He was also the “Legadue MVP” in his rookie season as a pro.

I’m not quite sure what any of this means, or why the Sixers are after a guy that averaged 11.7 points overseas. Ware is a 5-10, 175 lb guard so he doesn’t really fit this mold that Hinkie has us believing in of everyone being 6-6 or taller. He’s about as tall as me, which is concerning. But, his name is Casper, so of course we have to bring him in for a workout.

Ware averaged 17.2 points over his two-year career at LBSU on 42 percent shooting from the field.

Oh, HEY! I found some YouTube video on the kid — enjoy (video starts :20 in)!
