The Philadelphia 76ers have signed Saben Lee to a two-way contract, sources told Tim Bontemps of ESPN. The club will waive Michael Foster Jr. to make room for Lee’s arrival.
Lee, 23, was the 38th pick in the 2020 Draft. He spent the past two seasons serving for the Detroit Pistons averaging 5.6 points, 3.3 assists, and 2.2 boards in 16.3 minutes of 85 total games played.
Last offseason, he was a piece of the Pistons’ package to acquire Bojan Bogdanovic from the Utah Jazz, who eventually waived him afterwards. He then inked with the Suns, but he didn’t last there and around the Toronto Raptors.
As such, the Raps handed an Exhibit 10 deal to Lee in order to become available for Raptors 905. He then went on to average 21.7 points and 6.0 assists in seven games.
With Tyrese Maxey to miss some time, Lee’s addition can certainly help the Sixers to gain more units for their decimated roster.
The Sixers have recently won over the Brooklyn Nets last Tuesday, 115-106, with Tobias Harris’ 24 points and six boards taking the lead.
