Weems’ contract is non-guaranteed next season. While he still has international options, he will use the remainder of this season with the Sixers to prove he belongs in the league. “Just try to establish myself, that’s the ultimate goal,” he said. “I kind of had an up-and-down NBA season. Now that I’m back and I’m 29 years old, [I’m] just trying to establish myself. If it doesn’t work out, I’m happy going back overseas. But my No. 1 priority is to stay here.”

The Sixers did not re-sign Robinson in the summer. A league source said the team plans to take a look at Weems. The 6-foot-6, 205-pounder’s contract is not guaranteed next season. So the Sixers wouldn’t owe him any money next season if they released him now or at the end of this season. “Does it look bad doing it two years in a row? Yeah,” a league source said. “But you can look at the logic that they need a wing player and this kills two birds with one stone. It gets them to the floor and it pays them $2 million and they get to look at Sonny Weems.”
