The Philadelphia 76ers agreed to terms with swingman Ryan Broekhoff, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Broekhoff is expected to sign for veteran’s minimum.

Broekhoff signed with Philadelphia prior to the season restart as a substitute player. However, he bowed out after his wife contracted the coronavirus.

The forward from Australia played for two seasons with the Mavericks, averaging 4.0 PPG in 10.7 in 59 career games. He’s a 40.3% three-point shooter.

He was waived in February when Dallas signed Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Broekhoff spent his first few years of his career in Europe with Besiktas and Lokomotiv Kuban.

In particular, he has 31 games in EuroLeague averaging 8.5 points on 47 percent from beyond the arc. With that move, Daryl Morey brings more depth and shooting to Philadelphia’s squad.
