The Sixers have been busy in the offseason as they traded for De’Anthony Melton on draft night and they also worked quickly in free agency to bring in PJ Tucker as well as Danuel House Jr. All three of those guys are expected to help the Sixers and be a part of their rotation. “I think the guys bring toughness,” said Maxey on Saturday at his 1% skills camp. “They bring toughness to our team and it’s gonna be great to see them at camp and I can’t wait to get started.”
Tucker, especially, was a part of the Miami Heat team that eliminated the Sixers in the playoffs and he also won a ring with the Milwaukee Bucks in 2021. He is expected to give Philadelphia a boost in the toughness area which was something the team harped on that they needed after they were eliminated. “Most definitely,” said Maxey. “I think they’ll definitely help us with mental toughness. I think they’ll also help with just the physical toughness. The grit and the grind that we need to bring to our team and also, I think guys like PJ, he’s gonna bring the championship mentality. I think we’re really gonna appreciate him for that.”
Doc Rivers: “He works with Sam Cassell and my son Spencer, they’re skill-developing coaches. He called Spencer two weeks ago because, I guess like Ros, he went on vacation. The difference, Ros, is this is the first vacation he’d ever been on in his entire life. That’s what he was telling us. I was like, ‘Wait, what?’ He was like, ‘No, I’ve never been on vacation. He asked Spencer, ‘What do you do on vacation?’ True question, what do you do on vacation? And Spence was like, ‘You relax!’ And [Tyrese goes], ‘For how long? For how many days? We’re going for a week, I can’t relax for a week.'”
