The Philadelphia 76ers have been looking for a player like Georges Niang.
But hey, as Niang put it himself in an interview with KSL New Radio, “Listen, guys, I’m not a Ferrari. Like you guys. I need a couple laps around the block to get to full speed like a minivan.”
Fun fact: Niang has another nickname, Fat Curry, but I’m not sure how that one came to be.
Will Niang be able to further his on-court progression as he turns in his colorful collection of Utah jerseys for all-American red, white, and blues? Let’s hope so because the Philadelphia 76ers desperately need a player with his set of skills.
In Niang, the Sixers have a versatile combo forward who could play the four next to players like Matisse Thybulle and Danny Green or at the three if paired up with a player like Tobias Harris.
