SIXERS WORK OUT FREE AGENT SAM DEKKER, A NO-HOPE MOREY FAVE!

By Tommy Matthews

According to NBC Sports Philadelphia’s John Clark:

The Sixers held a free agent workout for the veteran forward, Sam Dekker, who was the 18th overall pick of the Houston Rockets in 2015.

At the time, Sixers President of Basketball Operations Daryl Morey was running the front office in Houston. Dekker joined the Rockets and split time between Houston’s main roster and its NBA G League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

In his rookie season with the Rockets, Dekker appeared in just three games. The following year, Dekker appeared in a career-high 77 games with the Rockets, averaging 18 minutes on the floor. During that time, Dekker produced seven points per game while shooting 32 percent from deep.

During the 2017 offseason, Dekker was sent packing to the Los Angeles Clippers alongside a pair of former Sixers in Montrezl Harrell, Patrick Beverley, and Lou Williams. Dekker was a piece in the Rockets’ blockbuster trade for Chris Paul.

In LA, Dekker averaged 12 minutes per game in 73 outings. He produced four points per game while shooting 49 percent from the field.
