Trevelin Queen was on a cruise with no cell reception during free agency and had no idea his agent signed a deal with the 76ers
The Philadelphia 76ers kicked off free agency on July 1st with the goal to bolster their depth and toughness. In doing so, they added PJ Tucker, Danuel House Jr, and reining G League MVP Trevelin Queen.
At the start of free agency, Trevelin Queen was on a cruise and had zero cell reception, so he asked his agent to find the best deal available and that he would touch base with him when he finally got cell service back.
Chris Haynes detailed the story here during the Sixers Summer League game.
Queen’s agent agreed on a two-year $3.3 million deal with the Sixers.
Shoutout to the agent who was able to land Queen on a contender with a chance to make the NBA roster. I can barely rely on my friends to book a weekend tee time let alone to land me a $3.3 million deal without me knowing.
As for being on a cruise, that’s something I can’t get behind. Ever since I watched HBO’s The Last Cruise about the people who got stuck on a cruise ship at the start of COVID, I decided that cruise ships just aren’t my preferred way to travel.
The Delaware Blue Coats lost to Trevelin Queen and the Rio Grande Vipers in the G League Finals last year. Over the three game series, he averaged 34 points, including a 44 point, 7-for-12 from three point range performance in game two.
Side Note: Queen was ejected in the final game after stomping on the Blue Coats logo, which started an altercation with Delaware players Shaq Harrison and Myles Powell. Dog.
Queen averaged 22 points per game in the G League last year and will ideally provide The Sixers with some more depth at the guard position throughout the regular season if he can land himself a spot on the Sixers roster.
