John Mitchell of Philly.com caught up with head coach Doug Collins to discuss the situation.
“They will look to add a third point guard, Collins said. The team is also considering re-signing Wayns to a 10-day contract.
“We need to see if we can find maybe another guy who can come in and play pick-and-roll and do some things for us when Jrue is off the floor,” Collins said. ‘We really take a hit when Jrue is off the floor because we don’t have the personnel to do it with the [second] unit.’”
Wayns was averaging 2.5 points a 1.0 assist in 7.5 minutes per game in the 20 games he appeared in for the 76ers. Ivey has not exactly impressed in his opportunities either. Ivey has appeared in 18 games this season while averaging 2.6 points and 0.4 assists in 10.8 minutes per game. The Sixers need a solid backup point that they can rely on if Jrue Holiday gets in foul trouble or injured.
