The 76ers entered this truncated, transformative offseason with an All-Star big man.

They recently added another, who also happens to be a multi-time Defensive Player of the Year award winner. 

In trading for Tony Bradley, the Sixers have acquired a young, former first-round pick capable of adding depth at the five spot as well.

Here are some more notes about the 22-year old North Carolina product…

  • Comes to the Sixers via a Nov. 23 swap with the Detroit Pistons. Detroit got Zhaire Smith in return.

  • Spent all three prior NBA seasons with the Utah Jazz, which acquired him from the Los Angeles Lakers in a 2017 draft night deal.

  • Had his most active NBA season to-date in 2019-20, appearing in a career-high 58 regular games (including three starts). Posted 4.9 points and 4.6 rebounds in 11.4 minutes per contest, and later got time in six of Utah's seven postseason games. 

  • Played nine NBA games his rookie season (3.2 mpg / 0.9 ppg / 1.2 rpg), and three his second season in 2018-19 (12.0 mpg / 5.7 ppg / 5.0 rpg).

  • Scored an NBA personal-best 15 points twice - first against the LA Clippers (4/10/19) and the following year versus the San Antonio Spurs (8/7/2020). Both games were double-doubles. 

  • Split parts of his first two seasons between the NBA and G League. During this stretch, suited up in 44 games - all starts - for the Salt Lake City Stars, accounting for 14.5 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. 

  • Originally chosen 28th overall in 2017 on the heels of his freshman season at UNC, where he averaged 7.1 points (57.3 fg%) and 5.1 rebounds in 14.6 minutes per game for a Tar Heels team that won that year's national championship. 

  • Grew up in central Florida in the town of Bartow and in 2016 was named the state's Gatorade Player of the Year, an honor also earned by now-teammate Ben Simmons. 

  • Father Tony Sr. hooped as well, playing at Florida A&M, and is now a pastor at the family's local church.
