Sixers finalize roster for Orlando Pro Summer League - 6/29/2010

All summer league games can be seen on NBA TV

Philadelphia, PA – June 30, 2010 – Philadelphia 76ers President and General Manager Ed Stefanski today announced the team’s roster for the Orlando Pro Summer League (OPSL), held from July 5-9 at the RDV Sportsplex in Orlando, Fla.

Headlining the roster are the Sixers first round picks from the past three years: Marreese Speights (2008), Jrue Holiday (2009) and Evan Turner, the second overall pick from last Thursday’s draft. Jodie Meeks, who joined the Sixers via trade back in February, will also play in the OPSL.

As a junior at Ohio State this past season, Turner averaged 20.4 points, 9.2 rebounds and 6.0 assists en route to sweeping national player of the year honors. He became the first Division I player to average at least 20 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists in a single season since Oscar Robertson did so in 1958-59 and 1959-60.

Despite being the youngest player in the NBA last season, Holiday started the final 41 games for the Sixers. Over the last 16 games of the season, he averaged 12.0 points, 6.6 assists, 4.1 rebounds and 1.94 steals.

Speights was averaging 13.0 points on 60.5% shooting prior to suffering a sprained MCL in a game at Chicago back in mid-November. He scored 20-plus points in three of the final six games and seven times overall last season after doing so once as a rookie in 2008-09.

For the month of April, Meeks averaged 13.5 points on 56.5% shooting from the floor and 50.0% shooting from 3-point range in just 23.0 minutes per game. He averaged a team-high 19.0 ppg for Milwaukee at the 2009 NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
