ShamSports' Mark Deeks reports that the Sixers have signed former Georgetown Hoya Hollis Thompson. Thompson spent last season with the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Developmental League appearing in 48 games and averaging 8.1 points and 3.8 rebounds per game.
Thompson, 6'8", 205 lbs., was a solid player for the Hoyas in his three seasons at Georgetown as he averaged 8.7 points and 4.1 rebounds per game. He is a very high-percentage shooter from the floor which makes him particularly attractive to the analytic gurus in the 76ers front office.
My guess? He plays with the Delaware 87ers a lot this season.
