Keith Pompey: #Sixers Brown on likelihood of @shawnlong21 getting 2nd 10-day deal: "I think we are going through that. It wouldn’t surprise me. I have no desire personally to look elsewhere. He’s a part of what we have been doing. I think once we learn more about Tiago’s health, that could influence it. But to date, like he’s done nothing that would make me think otherwise. I think the more we start learning about Tiago that could influence some."
Tom Moore: #Sixers have signed F Shawn Long to 10-day contract with 16th-player roster exception (at least 4 guys out with longterm injuries).
