SIXERS COULDN’T WAIT FOR PAUL REED TO DEVELOP AFTER 4 YEARS!

By Tommy Matthews

The Sixers got tired of waiting for Paul Reed to live up to his potential.

Especially in the playoffs, where he was MIA against the Knicks last May.

So it wasn’t surprising that Daryl Morey announced over the weekend that he was gone.

Selected by the Sixers in the second round (No. 58 overall) of the 2020 NBA Draft, Reed averaged 5.1 points and 4.2 rebounds in four seasons with the 76ers.

Reed evolved into a serviceable backup in the frontcourt over the past few seasons.

In ’23-24, he averaged 7.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.0 blocks, appearing in all 82 of Philadelphia’s regular season games.

However, his $7.7 million contract for next season was fully non-guaranteed, so he was always viewed as a candidate to be traded or released as the 76ers looked to maximize their cap room.
