Brandon Davies survives cut, contract with Sixers guaranteed
Brandon Davies' NBA odyssey just got longer.
On the final day NBA teams can cut players on non-guaranteed contracts, the Philadelphia 76ers waived second-year center Daniel Orton, leaving Davies on the roster. The former BYU standout's ESPN-reported 1-year contract of $490,180 is now guaranteed.
The news immediately boosted both Davies' minutes and stats. Just hours after the cutoff time Tuesday night, the former BYU standout had arguably his best game of the season. The rookie scored a career-high 11 points on 3-of-4 shooting from the field and 5-of-7 shooting from the line in the 111-93 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Davies, who was cut by the Los Angeles Clippers during the preseason, is averaging 11.8 minutes, 2.4 points and 2.0 rebounds a game. His fans will get a chance to see Davies play on Feb. 12 when the Sixers play the Jazz in EnergySolutions Arena.
