With training camp less than two weeks away, the Philadelphia 76ers have announced yet another signing. In a press release from the Sixers and president of basketball operations Daryl Morey, the team announced that they have signed forward Marcus Bagley to an undisclosed deal.

In all likelihood, that deal is an exhibit 10 deal, which allows a team to sign a one-year, minimum-salary contract that offers an incentive bonus for the player to remain with the team’s G League affiliate roster should they not make the official roster. For the Sixers, that affiliate is none other than the champions of the G League, the Delaware Blue Coats.

An undrafted rookie in the 2023 NBA draft, Bagley and the Sixers began working on a deal that would bring the former Arizona State Sun Devil to the organization. Three months later, that deal has now been completed.

Over his three seasons with Arizona State, Bagley averaged 10.9 points and 5.5 rebounds, though he made only 17 total appearances. Though he was listed on the Sixers’ Summer League roster, he did not play a game for Philadelphia for an undisclosed reason.

Until now, he has been known for being the younger brother of former No. 2 pick Marvin Bagley. Now, it’s Marcus’ turn to make a name for himself in this league, and it all starts in training camp with the Sixers.
