James Nunnally Not Returning To 76ers After Second 10-Day Deal Expires
With the expiration of his second successive 10-day contract, the Philadelphia 76ers won’t sign wing shooter James Nunnally for the remainder of the season, league sources told RealGM.
The 76ers have used the end of their roster for auditioning, and Nunnally averaged three points and shot 33.3 percent from three-point range in nine games. He scored eight points in 21 minutes in his second appearance on March 19.
Nunnally had also earned two 10-day deals with the Atlanta Hawks in January.
Nunnally had enjoyed his time with the 76ers, and now his agent, Bill Neff, will try to find with a more structured offensive system to better utilize Nunnally. Brett Brown has done a remarkable job to stabilize a culture around the 76ers, whose ball movement has increasingly dissipated as the season’s progressed.
Undrafted in 2012, Nunnally excelled in Summer League a season ago and has used the NBA Development League to earn two call-ups. He has averaged 18.1 points and 4.5 rebounds in 35 games this season with the Texas Legends and Bakersfield Jam.
