According to multiple sources the Sixers and a handful of other teams are currently in negotiations with free agent Hakim Warrick. Warrick whose from the Philly area is heading into his 5th pro season, he’s averaged over 11.0 PPG and around 5.0 APG in his career with the Grizzlies.
The Sixers are reportedly offering only a 1-year deal. Warrick has expressed interest in coming “home” so perhaps the Sixers have an edge. The 6″9 Warrick would help fill the bench nicely, a perfect sixth man. He would fit in with the Sixers style immediately he’s a slashing, floor-running, coast-to-coast type player.
Update 2:31 PM:
Hakim Warrick has signed a 1-year deal worth around $3.0 Million Dollars with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Sixers were only offering a 1-year deal worth the mid-level exception which is believed to be a little less little more then the $3.0 Million the Bucks gave him.
Sixers really missed out, Warrick could have helped them a lot. He would have been exciting to watch as well.
