2014 NBA Free Agency: 76ers Offer Keith Langford a Deal

According to to @Sportando, the 76ers have offered Keith Langford, a 30-year-old 6’4” shooting guard, of the Russian club Kazan a minimum offer.

Keith Langford played his college ball at Kansas University between 2001 through 2005. He went undrafted and signed with the D-League affiliate, Fort Worth Flyers. Langford went on to play overseas for different teams over the years, making his name by putting up high scoring averages.

In 2012 he was the Adriatic Final Four MVP and in 2014 he was named All-Euroleague First Team and also won the Alphonso Ford Trophy which is given to the top scorer of the Euroleague. This past season he put up 18 points on 54.7% from the floor and 47.1% from downtown. @Sportando went on to say that is unlikely that Langford accepts the Sixers offer but says the team did show interest in him.

Langford would probably just be used for Summer League purposes so him staying overseas, where he has been for a couple years, makes sense. If Langford denies the contract, be on the lookout for the Sixers trying to sign another shooting guard.
