The Philadelphia 76ers are getting set to open up the second half of the season on Thursday as they take on the Chicago Bulls on the road, but their young players were playing some good basketball in the Orlando G League bubble.
The team’s rookies, Isaiah Joe and Paul Reed, had themselves a productive G League season for the Delaware Blue Coats as they led the team to the title game.
Sixers team president Daryl Morey joined the ESPN2 broadcast during the game and he was happy with what he saw out of the team’s younger players. “Obviously, we’re a very good team and a tough rotation to crack, but this season at the NBA level, there’s been a lot of players in and out for various reasons. The normal injuries and also health and safety and things like that.”
Morey then went into the three players specifically and what they can bring to the team in the future.
