The Philadelphia 76ers have released their roster for the 2024 Summer League, which will feature games in Salt Lake City, Utah along with Las Vegas.

As expected, the roster will feature their first- and second-round draft picks, Jared McCain and Adem Bona. Joining them will be the team’s current two-way players Justin Edwards and David Jones. Jeff Dowtin Jr., who recently had his team option declined, will join them for the Utah portion of Summer League. Ricky Council IV, now in his second year, will also suit up alongside them.

This roster also features some familiar names, including Tony Bradley who played (well) on the 2020-21 Sixers. Both Romeo Langford and RJ Hampton are former first-round draft picks and intriguing additions.

There’s plenty of intrigue to be found outside of the bigger names as well. Judah Mintz, a 20-year old guard out of Syracuse, went undrafted in the 2024 draft which came as a surprise to some. He plays as a bigger guard and has serious playmaking skill for his 6-foot-4 frame. If he shows out, he could make a serious case for their last two-way contract spot.

Keve Aluma is a Virginia Tech (2020-22) product who has played professional basketball overseas for the past few seasons. Darius Days out of LSU is another rangy forward who had a short two-way stint with the Houston Rockets in 2022-23.

Max Fiedler was one of several undrafted guys the Sixers came away with out of the 2024 NBA draft; signing an Exhbit-10 deal which means he’ll likely remain around the Sixers and Delaware Blue Coats post-Summer League. A fun fact about Fieder: He’s the all-time leader in rebounds (1,144), assists (571), field goal percentage (.658) and games played (148) and games started (135) for his alma mater, Rice University. He’ll likely backup Bona, alongside Tony Bradley as a reserve big.

Rounding out the roster is Justin Powell, who most recently played in the G League with the Cleveland Charge. Powell is a well-built shooting guard with an excellent perimeter shot and all-around game. Jaylen Sims shined during his time with the Greensboro Swarm as a rangy 6-foot-6 guard capable of providing a little bit of everything. Last but not least is Jordan Tucker, a 6-foot-7 wing who has spent time in the G League and playing overseas for the past few seasons.

Overall, I think the Sixers have fielded a diverse Summer League roster with legitimate talent. We’ll see if Jared McCain and company have enough to dethrone the Summer League super team the Utah Jazz have thrown together. See the Summer Sixers in action starting Monday, July 8, against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
