The Philadelphia 76ers will sign Phil Pressey with their NBA-granted roster exemption.

Pressey has played 125 games in the league over the past two seasons, both with the Boston Celtics.

The Sixers get the extra roster spot due to the season-ending injury to Joel Embiid. 

Brett Brown was asked which position he'd like to bolster with the extra roster spot.

“Point guard,” he said without hesitation. “Point guard, no doubt. Because I think Isaiah Canaan has shown he can play a little bit of one, he can go over to two, he’s physical enough to play one, two or two, one. Whatever the order is, the order is. And we’ve unearthed something in T.J. (McConnell) who is just a real push it point guard and a pass-first point guard. I feel what this team needs to protect ourselves, as much as anything.”
