SIXERS’ ACQUISITION OF SHARPSHOOTER STAUSKAS NOW OFFICIAL

By Sarah Berkowitz

Nik Stauskas is now an official Sixer!

The teams announced the deal Friday night, with July 9 the earliest NBA teams could announce trades this off-season.

Sacramento sent Stauskas, Carl Landry and Jason Thompson to the 76ers for the draft rights to international players Arturas Gudaitis and Luka Mitrovic, and future draft considerations.

The move shed more than $16 million in salary next season for the Kings, who have agreements in place with free agents Rajon Rondo, Kosta Koufos, Marco Belinelli and Omri Casspi.

Sacramento selected Stauskas with the eighth pick in last year’s draft. He averaged 4.4 points while shooting 36.5 percent from the floor as a rookie. Landry and Thompson are veteran forwards.

Philly drafted Gudaitis 47th overall and Mitrovic 60th overall in last month’s draft.
