Keith Pompey: #Sixers coach Brett Brown said flexibility was the reason why the team didn’t sign @Larry Drew II for the rest of the season. “The trade deadline is coming up [on Feb. 19]. We need flexibility. We may see him, again. Who knows? What I do know is he was as I told everybody, he was an A. He did everything and some. And it doesn’t prohibit us from revisiting him at all.”

The Philadelphia 76ers today announced they have signed guard Larry Drew II to a second 10-day contract. Drew was the 17th GATORADE Call-Up of the 2014-15 NBA Development League season. In six games played since joining the Sixers, Drew is averaging five points and four assists in nearly 19 minutes per game. Dating back to the start of the 2000-01 season, Drew is one of just 22 players to have recorded at least 26 assists within the first six games of a career.
The Miami Heat have begun stocking their NBA Development affiliate, with Heat camp cuts Jarvis Varnado, Justin Hamilton and Larry Drew II among those invited Thursday to the Sioux Falls Skyforce’s training camp. Also on the Skyforce camp roster are Anthony Mason Jr. and former NBA forward Bill Walker. Also invited to camp was Jeffrey Remmington, a former Florida Atlantic guard who advanced out of an open tryout staged last month by the Heat.

Miami has recently expressed interest in a number of free agents including Von Wafer, Julyan Stone, Vander Blue, Yakhouba Diawara, Larry Drew II, Je’Kel Foster and Justin Holiday among others, according to sources close to the situation. All of these players recently worked out for the HEAT. Miami may bring in several other free agents for additional workouts in the coming days.
There was some website chatter that Bucks forward John Henson and Larry Drew II, the son of Bucks coach Larry Drew, didn’t exactly see eye to eye after Drew bolted North Carolina for UCLA. Henson denied there’s ever been any rift between them. “Coach Drew’s son is a great dude,” Henson said. “Larry is a good player; he’s working out for the draft now. I try to keep up with him because he played with us (at North Carolina). “It (the transfer to UCLA) was best for him and his family. That’s how it is. He obviously played great last season at UCLA, so he made the right decision. I hope the best for him. He’s a friend of mine.”
