For a short amount of time, it seemed the 76ers were totally content with their current roster considering they weren’t making any signings, but then they waived the veteran forward Ignas Brazdeikis, and everything changed.
“I got the call,” Tolliver explained on Wednesday following his first shootaround session with the Sixers. As Tobias Harris starts at the four and Doc Rivers likes what he’s been seeing out of Mike Scott over the last few games, the Sixers head coach admitted he’s unsure if he’ll find any minutes for Tolliver when the signing was announced last week.
Regardless of whether he’ll acquire minutes on the court or not, Tolliver still brings value to the 76ers as you can never have too many high-character veterans around, and there’s no such thing as too much depth in the NBA.
