The Sixers added James Michael McAdoo and James Blackmon Jr. to their roster a month ahead of training camp.
The team officially signed McAdoo to its first two-way contract. With this new type of deal, McAdoo will play for their G League affiliate, the Delaware 87ers, and can spend up to 45 days on the Sixers. That excludes time before the start of 87ers training camp and after their regular season ends. These contracts allow NBA teams to sign two two-way players in addition to their 15-player roster.
McAdoo won two championships with the Warriors in his three NBA seasons. He appeared in 26 postseason games and has career averages of 3.0 points and 1.7 rebounds. McAdoo was named to the G League (then D-League) all-star team in 2015 while playing for the Santa Cruz Warriors.
Blackmon Jr. played for the Sixers' summer league teams in July and participated in minicamp. He averaged 8.0 points and 2.6 rebounds over five games in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas. Blackmon Jr., a former McDonald’s All-American, went undrafted after three seasons at Indiana.
Training camp will begin at the end of September.
