76ers guard Rayjon Tucker issued qualifying offer
Later tonight kicks off the start of NBA free agency, and while the 76ers have been active on the trading front, almost no news has come out regarding free agency. The one move reported is that the Sixers will be extending guard Rayjon Tucker a qualifying offer, making him a restricted free agent.
Rayjon Tucker was huge for the Blue Coats during their G-League title push in the bubble last season. After signing a two-way deal in January, Tucker only appeared in 14 games for Philadelphia, averaging just two points in five minutes per game. With Delaware, Rayjon exploded for 19 points, four rebounds, and four assists per game.
Philly rosters several youngsters as part of their bench between Matisse Thybulle, Tyrese Maxey, Isaiah Joe, Paul Reed, Jaden Springer, Charles Bassey, and Tucker. The 76ers will be tight on cap space this offseason and have several players hitting the open market, including Dwight Howard, Danny Green, and Furkan Korkmaz.
