Sixers Player Profile: Georges Niang



Article Summary:

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be profiling every player currently on the Sixers’ roster ahead of training camp, which begins on September 28.

Georges Niang

Age: 28

Contract status: First year of two-year, $6.8 million contract

Signed in free agency this past offseason, Niang played four years of collegiate ball at Iowa State before being selected by the Indiana Pacers with the 50th overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft. The Jazz organization liked what they saw across his time with the Salt Lake City Stars and some brief cameos with the big club, awarding Niang a standard contract that July.

The past three seasons saw Niang play a regular role as a reserve for Utah. He’s a prototypical stretch four, shooting 41.1 percent from behind the arc during his career with Utah, including 42.5 percent on 4.1 3-point attempts per game last year.
