Ahead of their Sunday night bout with the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Philadelphia 76ers made some moves on the back end of their roster. Consequently, the team’s pick in the first round of the 2021 NBA draft will be getting a change of scenery.

Rookies Jaden Springer and Aaron Henry have been assigned to the G League’s Delaware Blue Coats, as relayed by The Philadelphia Inquirer‘s Keith Pompey and others. They’ll both report to the team’s training camp on Monday.


Neither player had netted a spot in Doc Rivers’ regular rotation. During the Sixers’ first two games, Springer and Henry logged a combined four minutes of court time. Only Henry has even attempted a shot.

Despite his status as a late first-rounder with middling athleticism, there’s definitely a lot to like about Springer, particularly on the defensive side of the ball. Just ask the people that were around him during his lone collegiate season at Tennessee.
