Summer Leauge play is officially over for the Sixers as they lose their last game to the Chicago Bulls. The Philadelphia 76ers Las Vegas roster ended with a 2-3 record. However, in the grand scheme of things.

The more critical aspect of Summer League play is the development of players on the roster and that’s no less true for the 76ers. Like with reviewing Philly’s Salt Lake City play, this article will be making 3 takeaways from the Sixers’ performance in Las Vegas.

With that being written, let’s begin.

3 takeaways from Las Vegas Summer League: Julian Champagnie isn’t ready

This isn’t the first time I’ve written about the play of Julian Champagnie. The last time I wrote about his play in the Summer League it wasn’t in the best light. Sadly, this article isn’t going to break that trend.

Coming out of St. John’s, Champagnie has all the tools to become a quality role player in the NBA. Despite going undrafted, the Sixers automatically signed the 6-foot-8 forward to a two-way contract.

However, he’s struggled not only in Las Vegas but also in Salt Lake City. However, just focusing on Las Vegas is still not even good. He averaged 4.3 points and 3.8 rebounds, while shooting just 21.4 percent from the 3-point line.

While I don’t think that the 76ers should give up on Champagnie completely. However, if there’s a better prospect to sign on a two-way contract, Philly shouldn’t hesitate to waive Champagnie and try to get him on their G-League affiliate the Delaware Blue Coats instead.
