Isaiah Joe Rumors
Former Arkansas star and Fort Smith native Isaiah Joe signed a three-year contract with the Philadelphia 76ers totaling nearly $4.2 million with a 2-year guarantee on Friday, just nine days after the club selected Joe with the 49th pick in the second round of the 2020 NBA Draft. The two-year guarantee is on the front end of the deal and is worth more than $2.4 million, with the total potential three-year compensation working out to $4,198,912.
Joe (6-5 shooting guard) is expected to arrive in Philadelphia by the end of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend to join the 76ers in preparation for the 2020-21 NBA season that is set to begin with regular-season games on Dec. 22. Training camp around the league is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, Dec. 1.
Shooting guard Isaiah Joe (Arkansas) is one of the sleepers of the draft. According to sources, Joe was high on the Sixers’ radar before Morey was hired two weeks ago. Sources have said the expectation was that the Sixers intended to select the sharpshooter in the draft. They said the belief is the Sixers promised to choose him. Time will tell if that’s the case with Morey in charge.
